Description

Dental implantology is the field of dentistry that is concerned with the replacement of missing teeth and their supporting structures with artificial prostheses anchored to the jawbone.

Besides functional problems, tooth loss can lead to psychological problems due to low self-esteem and social impairment thus considerably affecting the quality of one's life.Although implant dentistry has evolved to become an important part of clinical practice, unfortunately the coverage of this subject both in the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum has been rather slow, unstructured and certainly limited. Lack of recognised academic standards and training pathways has generated obstacles for the majority of the busy dentist practitioners who want to offer implant treatment in their practices


Objectives

To introduce the clinical procedures for dental implants
