Quality in dental implantology is all about balance – PG Cert in Implant Dentistry – November 19Featured Products Promotional Features
Posted by: The Probe 10th October 2019
Successful delivery of dental implant treatment depends on several factors. Firstly, the clinical competency and skill of the surgeon (which will depend on the individual’s level of training) will be paramount. Secondly, the clinician’s ability to design and fit a functional and aesthetic restoration or prosthesis will influence the long-term success of treatment. Finally, the quality and reliability of the products and materials being used during the surgical and restorative procedures will have a profound effect on satisfying patients’ expectations. Evidence based training, decision making and use of tried and tested materials are all fundamental in achieving long-term successful outcomes.
For this reason, it is beneficial for clinicians and their teams to get the opportunity to use quality implant systems during their postgraduate training. Not only will they become more accustomed to what the systems can do, but they will also learn how to maximise on the products’ features for more predictable and consistent results.
Training and education
For dentists looking to take their implant skills to the next level, the Postgraduate (PG) Certificate in Implant Dentistry from Ucer Education – sponsored by MegaGen – provides an ideal pathway into a very rewarding future with implants. Delivered in state-of-the-art teaching and clinical facilities at the ICE Postgraduate Institute and Hospital in Manchester, the 12-month course is presented by internationally-renowned experts in the field, including Specialist Oral Surgeon Professor Cemal Ucer.
Course content offers a mixture of theoretical and hands-on practical learning, with invaluable support and mentorship available throughout. Topics cover the complete digital workflow from interpreting CBCT scans to utilising intraoral scanners, 3D planning and guided surgery. Delegates will also be able to improve their skills relating to basic and advanced hard and soft tissue management techniques. Upon completion of the course, dentists will obtain a formal Level 7 award accredited by EduQual and will be better prepared to move onto the Diploma in Implant Dentistry by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, if they so choose.
The right tools
MegaGen is proud to sponsor a training programme with such a reputation as the PG Cert in Implant Dentistry from Ucer Education. As a global manufacturer of dental implant products, MegaGen is committed to helping clinicians achieve the very best long-term outcomes for their patients. Megagen operates a highly evidence based philosophy that promotes constant evaluation and improvement of its solutions to ensure it remains at the very cutting-edge of the field.
Among the solutions taught by Ucer Education is the AnyRidge implant system from MegaGen. The first system to introduce the concept of a progressive thread design, it has been heralded as a game-changer for the industry.
The advanced cortical design maximises cortical bone preservation around implants for an optimal long-term prognosis, irrespective of the quality or density of the bone. Platform shifting is double offset to improve the emergence profile and encourage a more aesthetic gingival outcome with thicker mucosa. Further still, the 5-degree taper connection facilitates a hermetic seal to virtually eliminate any risk of the screw loosening whilst eliminating microleakage. The unique Knife Thread also provides excellent primary stability with less insertion torque required, as well as high resistance to compressive forces for long-term success. Available in an array of diameters and cuff/post heights, with a 1mm trimmable margin, the AnyRidge implant system affords ultimate restorative flexibility.
The full product portfolio from MegaGen provides clinicians with tried and tested solutions for a wide range of indications, from single tooth replacement to full arch rehabilitation. These include the innovative AnyOne Implant System and the Mini Implant System, as well as various abutments and crowns. What’s more, MegaGen also offers Osstell technology to measure implant stability, a Wireless Auto torque driver and different implantology motor systems to cater to dentists’ every need when placing and restoring dental implants.
