Dental Implants Course Page
Dental implants are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth. Because of their many advantages compared to alternatives like bridges, dental implants have become a necessary tool in every dentist’s repertoire.
Patients are becoming more and more fond of dental implants as a way to replace teeth. Unlike with bridges, implants provide a way to receive an organic prosthetic that fits in the mouth much like the original tooth did. The high success rates and relatively few complications make it an ideal solution for any patient, young or old, who’s lost a tooth.
Thus, Dr. Gary Moore has created three classes to expound upon different aspects of the dental implant process. From the original surgery to the final prosthetic, Dr. Moore thoroughly explains the art behind dental implants in these classes.
Comprehensive Implant Surgery
Every dental implant requires a surgical step; in fact, most of the reasons why dental implants are so successful can be attributed to the unique surgery involved. Because a dental implant requires a root-like implant to be surgically placed in a patient’s gums, it is able to provide an organic way to replace missing teeth.
Thus, Dr. Moore has prepared a comprehensive course dedicated to studying the dental implant surgery process. How the surgery actually works is predictably one of the major focuses of the course, but Dr. Moore also deals with problems like potential complications that could arise after the implant has been successfully installed. The diagnosis and planning procedures are also discussed–essentially, the course is comprehensive in that it addresses virtually every aspect of the surgery process from planning to post-surgery considerations.
Bone Grafting and Sinus Elevation
Though knowing how to implant a root is enough for most situations, sometimes a patient needs to undergo additional surgeries before a dental implant can be successfully placed. For example, if a person’s upper jaw lacks the necessary bone structure for an implant to take place, grafting in a sinus lift might be necessary. This need can be caused by anything from natural inclinations to gum disease to missing teeth, so understanding when an additional step might be necessary is crucial to proper dental implants.
Like with the comprehensive dental implant surgery class, this course centers around the actual surgical procedure. Dr. Moore will lay the foundations by explaining and demonstrating the bone grafting process, then contextualize the generic procedure to the specific example of sinus elevation. As always, diagnoses and alternate treatments will be discussed to provide a complete view of the process. After the course, you should be able to successfully perform the surgery, enabling a further dental implant procedure to take place.
Of course, the whole purpose of a dental implant is to support a tooth prosthetic that will be added later. After the dental implant surgery has been successfully installed and the surrounding gums healed, a dentist will attach a removable, custom-made prosthetic tooth to the implant that replaces the lost tooth.
Though the original surgery is undoubtedly the most important step for the dentist, the prosthetic is what the patient will ultimately see so it holds great value as well. Being able to design prosthetics that not only fit but look good and stay strong is essentially to giving each patient the best possible implant.
In his course, Dr. Moore will discuss and compare different types of prosthetics. Additionally, he will describe various ways to create and customize prosthetics to every patient specifically. The course will focus on a holistic view of the use of prosthetics as well as explaining the potential benefits and complications involved in the process.
