Book now!

The course is addressed to students who have already attended our Implantology Initiation Course or to students  who had clinical practice in implantology for at least two years and wish to improve several surgical and prosthetic aspects.

Topics such as maxillary sinus augmentation, implants in aesthetic area, guided bone and tissue regenerations, full arch immediate loading surgeries, all-on- 4 protocols will be addressed.

Soft tissue manipulation techniques will also be approached as a complement to implant surgery to increase tissue volume or improve aesthetic and functional predictability.

The course is limited to 4-6 students who will work in groups of 2. Each group of 2 dentists will perform at least 3 surgeries.


  • Acquire skills to perform more complex surgeries, such as bone and tissue regeneration surgeries, maxillary sinus surgeries and immediate loading surgeries;
  • Acquire capacities for the accomplishment of complex prosthetic rehabilitations like total prostheses on implants or prostheses in aesthetic zones;
  • Domain of the various surgical techniques and prosthetic solutions in immediate loading full arch rehabilitations, namely through classic protocols of 6 implants or All-on-4 protocols.


  • At the pre-clinical level the student will practice the various techniques learned and will be evaluated in order to determine the existence of adequate aptitude for the treatment with patients.

CLINIC (Practice with Patients)

  • Students will work in groups of 2. Each group of 2 dentists will perform at least 3 surgeries.
  • Clinical practice will be performed with patients under the guidance of teachers.
