This “Master Course on implant therapy in edentulous patients” covered fundamental principles and modern developments in the rehabilitation of edentulous jaws. Dental implants, both for fixed and for removable dentures, have revolutionised ideas for treatments over recent decades, as they have made it possible for patients without teeth to acquire a firm bite.
Special attention was drawn to the application of modern digital techniques in diagnosis, planning and realisation. 3D imaging, virtual planning and guided surgery in particular are modern techniques that ensure greater precision and predictability and thereby allow for minimally invasive approaches to treatment. As an implantologist with a great deal of experience in treating edentulous patients, PD Dr. Simone Janner took an active part as a lecturer in this course in Berne.
