Extractions and grafts that students will perform on their own – 18+

  • Advanced Restorative training for diagnosis and how to set up large cases. The course includes a solid foundation on full arch, full mouth with teeth or without teeth cases that would need the smile design process, matrixes, transfers, and temps to complete large cases with perfection.

What should you expect when coming to this course?

In general, on what to expect when coming to this course, a dentist will be trained and supported by a group of like-minded practitioners. This course has a climate of escalation as each day progresses. The first day, the students are learning the tools necessary for fresh placement and the techniques for grafting. During the first day, a large amount of time is lectures on setting up cases, restorative dentistry, sedation dentistry, business, and sales education. That same day, all the students will be grouped for their first couple surgeries with a faculty member and be involved in every step of the surgeries using the skills that they were just taught. Students will be making the decisions on the protocol used during these cases. Each student averages two fresh placements on their first day.

During the second day, a doctor would expect a morning lecture finishing up immediate placement protocols and drilling sessions live on sizes of implants, drill sizes, drill length marks, apical measurements of implants, protocols and diagnosis demonstration. Acteon CT trainer will be doing CT training with the students so that each student is knowledgeable on how to use a CT when planning implant cases. That afternoon, the students will be grouped in a two pair surgical team to work on their own patients and placing an average of 4-5 implants each student and 4-5 extractions and grafts during this surgery session.

During the third day, a doctor would expect a day full of surgeries ranging from simple cases single units to two placements for bridges and how to space correctly for restorative, to full arch extractions with grafts and 4-6 implants placed on that same patient. Students will be using all the skills that they were taught on live patients for a long 10 hour surgical rotation that typically on this day each student averages about 10-12 placements each.

During the fourth and final days, the intensity will rise to another level. Each student will receive a very large case that they will have to complete on their own. Most cases will involve 8 or more extractions, grafts, 6-8 implant placements with an immediate denture adjusted and placed in the patient’s mouth. All students will get to experience working on a DEEP IV anesthesiologist patient that involves a full mouth surgery with at least 12 -16 implants being placed with a senior instructor that is called SPEED CASES which will help speed up the student’s surgical techniques. Each student typically gets 2 implants to do on this patient. In this case, the surgeon will push the dentist to move fast and quickly. They will teach some unique techniques that are used when doing large cases such as these.

By the end of this last day, our students are excited and tired. The intensity and experience by this time have reached a climactic point whereby the end the students feel confident and satisfied. Our method and reasoning for this type of training are we believe the biggest way for a dentist to learn is to be put under the most intense training that we can provide. Providing a course with this level of training will make the doctors when they get home comfortable and confident in the placements that they will have to do on their own in their private practices.
