Content of the module

Lecturers of this module

Implant therapy in general, also considering possible previous periodontal damage. Implant prosthetics and post-implant therapy. Anatomy of implant-relevant structures. Pretreatment by bone augmentation. Overview of different replacement materials and their indications. Soft tissue management and 3D planning. Another focus is the pathogenesis, treatment and prevention of peri-implantitis.

What lecturers say about their module

The following topics will be prepared on the basis of literature, structured with the help of decision trees and presented in a practice-oriented way through many case studies:

  • Diagnostics for implant therapy planning
  • Basics of implant surgery
  • Implants in the aesthetic zone
  • Implants in a strongly reduced residual dentition
  • Implants in the edentulous jaw
  • Fixed restorations with focus on material selection and retention methods
  • Removable restorations with focus on telescopic crowns, bars and stud attachments

A periodontally damaged dentition ideally requires no implants at the beginning. However, as soon as the first teeth are lost, restoring chewing function and esthetics is a particular challenge. The appropriate use of implants and implant prosthetics is never easy in these patients, but always a challenge and requires special training.

Periodontitis is a disease that is often associated with tooth loss. The implant treatment of patients with periodontal damage is a particular challenge in many ways and is therefore given special attention in all topics of this module.
