Introduction to Fully Guided Implant Surgery with Models and Live Surgery


Welcome to our comprehensive course on guided dental implant surgery. Guided dental implant surgery leverages advanced 3D imaging technology to create a surgical guide, enabling the precise placement of implants in the jaw. This approach significantly reduces the likelihood of complications and allows for shorter surgery times.

Guided implant surgery is a crucial addition to any implant practice, and our course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to master this innovative technique. Our curriculum covers the principles of guided implant surgery, including treatment planning, surgical guide fabrication, and live surgical implant placement.

Our experienced instructors will guide you through hands-on exercises, including simulated surgical procedures on models and live patients to help you develop confidence in using guided implant surgery. Our state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technology ensure that you will receive the best training possible.

Join us on this exciting journey to enhance your skills and expand your practice with guided implant surgery.
