Osseodensification: A Paradigm Shift in Implant Dentistry – The University of Florida
November 11, 2016 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM$749
Osseodensification is unlike any other bone instrumentation system in the market today. Unlike traditional bone drilling technologies, Osseodensification does not excavate bone tissue. Rather, it preserves bone bulk so bone tissue is simultaneously compacted and auto-grafted in an outwardly expanding direction to form an osteotomy with compacted dense layer of bone tissue along its walls. Scientific literature has suggested that dense compacted bone tissue produces stronger purchase for dental implants, higher initial implant stability, higher insertion torque values, and may facilitate faster healing. Furthermore, Osseodensification can also be used for alveolar ridge expansion and crestal sinus floor elevation.
This CE course combines didactic lecture and hands-on workshop to cover a broad range of applications of Osseodensification in Implant Dentistry
After attending this program the attendee should be able to:
- Learn the rationale and science behind Osseodensification.
- Identify indications and contraindications for treatment.
- Practice Osseodensification, ridge expansion, and crestal sinus floor elevation.
