Learning outcomes

The oral surgery course in implantology aims to give to students all the surgical knowledges and skills needed for the correct positioning of dental endosseous implants. In particular, all surgical, medical, radiological and anatomical aspects related to implant surgery will be treated.
Theoretical lessons will provide as much information as possible for correct planning of implant treatment through the presentation of explanatory clinical cases. Theoretical lessons will be completed by a part of practical activity during which students will have the opportunity to observe "in vivo" as they learned in lesson. Furtherly they will try to insert dental implants using specifically designed lab models.
At the end of the course the student will be able to:
- Perform a proper clinical examination and anamnesis for implant purposes
- know how to formulate a correct diagnosis and treatment schedule
- know the different anesthetic techniques used in implantology
- know the different surgical options and how to administer and execute the implant surgery
