This action-packed course is one of the favourite modules on the AAID Vancouver MaxiCourse and is a great experience for anyone performing Implant Placements and Bone Grafting procedures. It includes a full-day Friday lecture following by two days of lecture and hands-on surgery on the cadavers. Surgical Anatomy is a vital topic to review and return to regularly; this course provides the opportunity to polish your surgical skills and refresh your knowledge of surgical anatomy .

Friday – Sunday

Module Outline

Dental implant procedures require that the surgeon work in parts of the jaw that are outside the scope of everyday dentistry. Implantology often involves working in vital structures and surgical spaces that must be recognized and understood before working in these areas. Violation of these structures may create serious immediate or long-term consequences to the patient.

This program provides a systematic review of the anatomical structures, and participants will learn how to apply that knowledge in the surgical setting. The program is developed with a combination of modular lectures and cadaver dissection in the surgical anatomy lab to reinforce the learning. By the completion of this session, dentists can approach their surgery with confidence in knowing how to provide treatment in a safe manner.

The distinguishing feature of this program is the emphasis and reinforcement of practical application of surgical anatomy.

Saturday and Sunday will include hands-on cadaver exercises.

Module Objectives

Following this session, participants will:

  • Be able to identify surgical spaces and vital structures, and the clinical significance of both
  • Be able to identify these structures in the Anatomy Lab and aware of the clinical consequences of intruding into these structures
  • More confidently be able to apply various local anesthetic techniques
  • Be familiar with bone, anatomy, physiology, and local growth factors
  • Be introduced to evidence-based management of atrophied jaw bones
  • Understand the spread of infection, emergency treatment of complications, and emergencies in the dental office
  • Be knowledgeable of the surgical anatomy of the submandibular region of interest to implantologists
  • Be familiar with the surgical anatomy of the mandible and maxilla as organs
