Course Content

In this module the treatment of the medically compromised patient and
the complex prosthetic cases where oral implants play a role will be
discussed. As cases get more complicated the chances of failure of the
superstructures and or the implants also grows. Therefore it is
important the implant specialist has in-depth knowledge of and
specialist insight in the treatment strategies’ and protocols when
treating this patient category. Treatment of the MaxilloFacial Patient
is best carried out by a specialized team. The implant specialist must
have competent knowledge of the treatment of this patient category even
