ZURICH, Switzerland: Dental implantology leader Nobel Biocare has announced that it will be holding a masterclass in aesthetic implant and restorative dentistry at the University of Zurich from 10 to 12 November. According to the company, it will be one of the most comprehensive courses in advanced implant treatment available and is set to feature live demonstrations of surgery, hands-on workshops and case discussions in small groups.
Participants in this advanced course will be interactively guided through cutting-edge, digitally-driven techniques for complex cases in the aesthetic zone. In addition to hands-on demonstrations, this year’s masterclass features two live demonstrations of surgery focused on hard- and soft-tissue management.
Some of the key learning areas covered by this course will include state-of-the-art digital tools for streamlining workflows, evidence-based strategies for partially and fully edentulous cases, understanding the use of CAD/CAM for reconstructions, and skills in bone and soft tissue management. Experts from the Clinic of Reconstructive Dentistry at the University of Zurich’s Center of Dental Medicine are leading the course, which has been collaboratively organised by Profs. Ronald Jung and Daniel Thoma.
“What participants will really like is the small group experience,” said Prof. Thoma. “Our entire team stays with them for the whole three days. We will all have the feeling of being part of a family. This proximity also makes it far easier to answer questions that participants may have, related not only to the surgical interventions and lectures but also, more generally, to their clinical work.”
Prof. Thoma noted that, when considering current dental research, it is becoming increasingly clear how important aesthetics are to patients.
“Soft tissue augmentation procedures are the basis for providing the best aesthetic outcome, and they are also essential for maintaining peri-implant health over the long run,” he said. “We provide the participants with the whole workflow, which really makes a difference,” he added.
Participants will also have the opportunity to visit Nobel Biocare’s Dental Experience Centre, located at the company’s headquarters in Zurich, in order to discover its latest products and solutions.
Participants who complete the course will benefit from 21 continuing medical education credits.
