Edentulism presents many problems for patients. Although numerous solutions exist, they're not always suitable.
Now you can offer your patients an affordable, simple and proven solution for denture stabilisation and replace some dentures with small diameter implant (SD Implant) retained single unit crowns.
Our small-diameter implant course is designed for practitioners who would like to expand their practice offering, by adding small-diameter implants as a definitive solution for patients’ loose dentures.
The one-day, part lecture, part hands-on course emphasises the treatment planning, case selection, placement protocol and restorative techniques specific to small-diameter implants.
Is held in a classroom-style setting with limited numbers to enable one-on-one time with the course instructor. Small-diameter implant surgical and restorative protocols are demonstrated through case slide presentations.
