Session 1 - Nov 27 - Dec 1, 2019 - Florence, Italy with Dr. Sascha Jovanovic and Dr. Francesco Mintrone

During the first 5 days of the one-year comprehensive Master Clinician Implant Training program all aspects of bone, soft tissue, and implant management will be featured including the critical steps in osseointegration and implant site development for long-term success, function and esthetics. Hands-on workshops with plastic and fresh porcine jaw models using microsurgical Hu-Friedy hand instruments, resorbable nylon and PTFE suture materials, W&H drill units, Nobel Biocare implant system, and bone regenerative materials are performed by the class and live surgery demonstrations by faculty. The restorative steps involved in osseointegration and implant prosthodontics are part of this session and will cover edentulous, multiple teeth, and single tooth restorations. Accurate impression taking, fit of framework, screw-retained vs cemented, abutment choice and occlusal design are highlighted in detail.
