Application Procedure


The diffusion of implantology offers the clinician more and more often the treatment of cases characterized by significant atrophies of the alveolar process. All this has been treated up to now with important reconstructive procedures. The invasiveness of these procedures has today directed clinical practice towards less invasive procedures or, in other words, the search for alternative positioning of implant posts. The aim of the course is to prepare students for advanced management of jaw atrophies starting from an accurate diagnosis to arrive at a rational therapeutic choice that takes into account not only the reconstructive techniques, but also the choice of alternative implant placements.

The Master main partner is the Istituto Stomatologico Toscano.
