The Academy for Implant Mastery (AIM Education) held their first Immediate Implant Placement and Loading course, which was very well received. The course was proudly sponsored by Southern Implants, Biohorizons, NSK and Curaprox.
The day began with a short presentation from the wonderful Curaprox representative, Issy Loetscher, who informed our attendees about the essential need for post-operative care for all implant patients, for which Curaprox provides a number of incredible and scientifically backed solutions.
Our lecturer, Dr Steve Soukoulis, then began his lecture series that covered a number of topics such as; diagnosis and treatment planning for immediacy, patient selection parameters, planning implant positions, immediate implant surgical protocols, grafting procedures, complication management and much more.
Once the lecture series was completed, the attendees moved onto the hands on practical component using Southern Implants supplied models and implants (Inverta and MAX implants), Biohorizons supplied bone grafting materials (Alloderm and Allograft), with use of the NSK supplied implant motors.
During their hands on prac work, Dr Soukoulis provided 1 on 1 assistance to each attendee and answered any number of questions each attendee asked. With an abundance of questions and discussions, the day ran a bit late but all attendees definitely left with a greater understanding and improved skill sets to undertake immediate implant cases back at their
The attendees have been provided with certificates of completion of the course with 8 CPD points. Attendees were also supplied with incredible offers from the sponsored suppliers in order to get set up with the materials and equipment they used during the course.
