Course description: The course reviews levels of sedation, airway management, patient monitoring, management of medical emergencies, venipuncture, and pharmacology leading to an understanding in conscious sedation. Following Moderate Sedation I, the resident will receive sufficient clinical experience, at an accredited clinical site, to demonstrate competency in those techniques including clinical administration of conscious sedation on 20 patients.

Course description: Residents will present cases to their peers and course instructors for analysis and discussion. An online forum for case presentation will provide a shared experience among the residents to develop clinical acumen.

Course description: Each resident will serve a caseload of patients or be involved in required hours of clinical care.

 

YEAR 2 - Fall 2

Course description: Multiple designs of implants and methods of placements are in current use. An understanding of the indications and contraindications of the contemporary choices will be covered. The surgical steps for successful outcomes will be presented and demonstrated. This course will involve multiple course instructors presentations to provide in-depth experience in and competency in different techniques to expose residents to often contradictory treatment options. Detailed treatment steps will be taught with the intention of making correct surgical decisions a habit and not a guess. Residents will critically evaluate the scientific literature as it relates to the subject.

Course description: Residents will critically evaluate the scientific literature as it relates to the subject. For over 60 years the use of overdentures has been a hallmark of oral implantology. The benefits of restored function and esthetics with overdenture prostheses are well documented. From the original subperiosteal implants to the ramus frame and root form implants with superstructures or simply ball retention post, all facets of overdenture therapy will be presented. Additionally, from the single tooth replacement to full arch, fundamental concepts of implant retained fixed prosthodontics will be taught to the residents with an emphasis on esthetics (form) and biomechanics (function). Principles of occlusion will be presented as well as different restorative materials available to achieve the restorative goals. Residents will critically evaluate the scientific literature as it relates to the subject.

Course description: Residents will be taught the importance of proper business management of implant practices. The development of personal leadership style will be the guidepost for business development. Systems development techniques and materials will be presented. Sound financial practices will be taught as pertaining to practice acquisition and start-ups. Staff (hiring, firing, and training) development and retention practices will be taught. Marketing strategies will be taught and developed for implementation.

Course description: An in-depth correlation between the surrounding tissues of teeth and endosteal implants will be taught and a current review of periodontal therapy/treatment/surgical procedures will be presented. An understanding of the etiology of the condition of peri-implantitis, including its etiology and treatment will also be studied.

Course description: This course will deliver a deeper understanding of details and variations encountered when performing these different surgical procedures, which residents have already observed: Nerve Repositioning, Onley Bone Grafting, Maxillary Sinus Augmentation, Autogenous Bone Augmentation, TVO™ Procedures, Extra Oral Augmentation Procedures, Laser Therapy, and Advanced Implant Procedure.

Course description: Residents learn how long-term health can be better predicted when implants are surrounded by stable keratinized gingiva. Coursework will illustrate multiple creative ways to move gingiva to new locations and function as stable gingiva resulting in stable bone that improves the prognosis of dental implants. Residents will critically evaluate scientific literature as it relates to the subject. Knowledge of cellular biology and histo-morphological differences between soft tissue around natural teeth and soft tissue around implants will be gained. Management strategies for preservation of natural and esthetic architecture and surgical site development through soft tissue manipulation or augmentation will be taught for reconstruction and re-establishment of esthetic soft tissue. 

Course description: This course will provide residents with an understanding of these conditions and their influence relating to comprehensive oral implantology treatment.

Course description: Residents will present cases to their peers and course instructors for analysis and discussion. An online forum for case presentation will provide a shared experience among the residents to develop clinical acumen.

Course description: Each resident will serve a caseload of patients or be involved in required hours of clinical care.

 

YEAR 2- Spring 2

Course description: This course will develop an understanding of the concept, history, design, fabrication, placement, prosthetic restoration, and maintenance of ramus frame implants. The information in this course, combined with in-depth surgical training, demonstrates advances in comprehensive oral implantology training.

Course description: This course will develop an understanding of the concept, history, design, fabrication, placement, prosthetic restoration, and maintenance of sub-periosteal implants. 

Course description: Piezo surgery has brought a level of safety to Nerve Lateralization which has never been possible before. Techniques will be taught which will open the possibility of this procedure to be performed by our residents. Residents will critically evaluate the scientific literature as it relates to the subject. Vertical bone loss in posterior mandibular areas can result in bone being unable to receive implants without unacceptable risks of nerve injury. Successful moving of the inferior alveolar out of the mandible can then permit implant placements. This procedure has been safely used within the AAID for 45 years. The results will be presented. Current techniques with non-rotary cutting have eliminated much of the risks and will be taught. Onlay bone blocks will be demonstrated as a frequent component of this treatment.

Course description: History of autogenous grafting procedures will be discussed. Residents will learn harvesting procedures for intra-oral and extra-oral techniques. Vascularized grafts, triple grafts, and other intraoral procedures will be taught for the purpose of regenerating lost vertical and horizontal ridges. Histomorphology core samples will be evaluated for comparison against allografts and xenografts. 

Course description: An overview of currently available laser for dental surgery will be taught. Specific LASERs and their indication of use and treatment modalities will be taught in detail. Osseous surgery, soft tissue surgery, TMJ therapy and peri-implantitis therapy with LASERs is also a part of this course.

Course description: This class will introduce residents to an understanding of what is current knowledge of sensory nerve physiology and nerve related pathology. Combined with laboratory training, micro- vascular nerve repair will likely become a component of resident’s clinical choices.

Course description: Guided bone regeneration principles, the use of cellular exclusion membranes, and the indications of use will be taught in this course. Included in this topic will be the specific use of titanium mesh, poly-galactic acid mesh, Polytetrafluoroethylene mesh, and several types of collagen for reconstruction of the alveolar ridge shape. Indications of use, procedural steps, and complication management will be taught.

Course description: Residents will present cases to their peers and course instructors for analysis and discussion. An online forum for case presentation will provide a shared experience among the residents to develop clinical acumen.

Course description: Each resident will serve a caseload of patients or be involved in required hours of clinical care.
