Course description

Dental Implantology is concerned with the replacement of missing teeth and supporting oral tissues with dental implants. These implants are inserted into the jawbones and support a dental prosthesis and are retained because of the intimacy of bone growth onto their surface. This course aims to provide dental practitioners with a broad dental-implant experience.
