This half-day training will minimize the learning curve and help understand the science behind Osseodensification. 

The program requires 2 hours of didactic scientific education and additional 2 hours of hands-on simulation with acutal bone specimes and simulation models. This course teaches the clinical Versatility of Osseodensification utilizing the Densah® Bur Technology

1 - Compaction Autografting technique
2 -  Review Densification Guide for any implant system. 
3 - Site optimization utilizing the Densah® Bur to increase Implant Stability. 
4 - Sub-Crestal Sinus Autografting Procedure. 
5 - Densify After Cut (DAC) Protocol. (DAC) 
6 - Ridge Expansion and the Plus1® Protocol.
7 - Universal Guided Surgery Protocol 

Learning Objectives:

Upon Completion of this course, participants should be able to:

1. Understand the scientific principle of Osseodensification
           i. Discuss its effect on implant stability and what it means biomechanically and histologically (BIC, Bone Volume) 
          ii. Describe implant micro-motion and its clinical significance. 
         iii. Optimize with adequate instrumentation.  

2. Discuss the Biomechanical validation of Osseodensification 

3. Review the Clinical and the Histological evidence of Osseodensification. 

4. Optimize the Site to Predictable Outcome

5. Enhance implant practice to Create More with Less.
