Introduction to Dental Implants for the GP


This one-day hands-on classroom and live patient implant placement observation course is geared towards general practitioners who want to learn the basics on how to get started with implementing dental implants into their practice. A thorough overview of predictable atraumatic extractions, grafting, implant placement and restorative techniques will be discussed in a simple and easy to follow manner. This introductory program will not be over your head or too advanced - but provide the basics on getting started with your implant journey. The topics that will be covered will include:

  • Diagnosis & treatment planning;

  • Radiographic interpretation;

  • Identifying vital structures;

  • Bone physiology;

  • Atraumatic extractions that are efficient and preserves bone;

  • Predictable socket grafting techniques;

  • Ideal implant placement;

  • Immediate fixed provisionals;

  • Restorative options;

  • Effective and proven case presentations that patients will accept; and

  • Marketing that works to attract implant patients for your practice.

AMP4 is a combination of in-depth lecture using rapid still photo clinical cases, hands-on implant model work and live patient implant placement observation by our course instructor (Dr. Ara Nazarian) at the course facility (not a video, but actual live implant placement observation). Course participants will also experience and practice site preparation, implant placement and impression taking techniques on models. Each participant will get to keep their exercise model for patient education to assist them in their practice (a $295 value for free).

Implants are a hot topic and more and more patients are looking for dental implants. In order to meet this growing demand, general practitioners must be able to offer implant therapy that is efficient and effective for their patients.
