Implantology: ‘The Foundation’ is the title of the new thematic course about bone, bone substitutes and augmentations, developped by The Dutch Association of Oral Implantology (NVOI). The course consists of power-point presentations and of hands-on trainings for dentists and oral surgeons.

The availability of an adequate bone structure is a pre-condition for a successful placement of implants. It is a prerequisite for both long-term function as well as satisfying esthetics of the prosthetic reconstruction.

The definition of “adequate bone” is changing. Not only the amount of required bone has changed but also the possibilities and perceptions of bone substitutes have increased. There is a development towards ever shorter implants and, at the same time, there are developments in the preservation of the dimensions of extraction sockets, and with regard to bone substitutes and surgical techniques. Most of these techniques are not easily applicable in practice which fact may have lead to a great interest in expert guided hands‑on trainings.

During this one-day NVOI course for dentists and oral surgeons the following subjects will be dealt with: indications for the preservation of the dimensions of extraction sockets, bone augmentation procedures, and their theoretical background. In the afternoon the actual bone augmentation procedures will be practiced on man-made replicas of a maxilla and dead animal mandibles.

Your teachers on this day are Chris ten Bruggenkate, Ronnie Goené, Henny Meijer and Gerry Raghoebar. All members of this team have a University tenure position and amply won their spurs in the fields of implantology and post-academic training.
