The basic skills of a dental doctor include treatment of conditions requiring dental surgery. In their everyday practice, dentists need to perform immediate or planned surgical interventions to eliminate the cause of the ailment, or to achieve the designed anatomical and clinical conditions. This is the case in implant therapy, where the continually modified advanced implant procedures require the dentist to use equally sophisticated and perfectly mastered surgical techniques. Success of implant treatment depends heavily on learning and perfecting the techniques in question.

The educational offer of the VIVADENTAL Institute in the area of surgical treatment comprises the full scope of the soft tissue, hard tissue, and reconstructive surgery.

  • Soft tissue surgery: primarily plastic surgery on the gums and mucous membranes;
  • Hard tissue surgery: tooth gouging, root tip resection, hemisection, cyst enucleation;
  • Reconstructive surgery: bone regeneration in the case of atrophy or deficit

The objective of the course organised by the VIVADENTAL INSTITUTE is to provide knowledge necessary in the performance of major oral surgeries.  The participants prime gain, however, consists in an opportunity to acquire or perfect their practical manual skills in the selected surgical procedures, including the most challenging ones.
