Timmins Implant Surgery Course

November 7, 2016

In this course, Dr. Lecours reviewed implant fundamentals, medical conditions that interfere with implants, radiographic exams, clinical examination and standard protocols. Reviewed about implant fundamentals such as their surfaces, components, features, and designs play a big role on osseointegration. Osseointegration is the connection made between the bone and the implant. Dr. Lecours has increased his learning in which radiographic examination is best suited for implant surgery. Radiography emitting less radiation exposure, allows him to see the vertical bone height and mesiodistal width, which is good for long-term monitoring of the peri-implant bone condition. Prior to the implant surgery, there is a clinical examination that helps Dr. Lecours with choosing the right implant for that specific patient.
