Minimally invasive dental treatment has generated much interest in dentistry. The dental literature has shown that when small diameter implants (SDI) are used to support or retain oral prostheses there can be long term stability and patient satisfaction. The course  will focus on the simplicity, versatility, and predictability of SDIs in everyday clinical procedures, exploring  the  clinical indications and proposing the clinical use on medical compromised patients.

 Learning Objectives:  At the completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand the biomechanical bases for successful treatment with small diameter implants
  2. Relate the clinical advantages and disadvantages of small diameter implants
  3. Properly select the patients for treatment with SDI
  4. Plan a treatment plan with small diameter implants
