Implantology Basics

The implant surgery simulator is specially tailored to your needs as a beginner and allows you to operate in a realistic practice situation and practice the various surgical and prosthetic implantology treatments. As the participant, you are the centre of attention, whether you are the implanting dentist, the first surgical assistant or the sterile second assistant. You will be accompanied by skilled implantologists with several years of experience. We place particular importance on the high practical relevance of our course and the detailed step-by-step hands-on exercises on phantom patients.

The compact basic training course for IFZI-certified implantologists consists of four coordinated modules. The high level of technical and professional expertise enables the courses to be compressed and imparted over two weekends (both Friday and Saturday) in order to optimise your time commitment.

Modules 1 to 3 are aimed at dentists, while module 4 is targeted at both dentists and dental technicians. Based on many years of experience, we can recommend that you involve a trusted dental technician in module 4.

In addition to looking at the tasks of the dentist performing the surgery, we also look at the roles of the sitting and standing surgical assistants. We also provide training on the dental technician’s role in the prosthetic phase.
