Course Content (Syllabus)
A semestrial course aiming to explore and understand the biologic foundation of modern implantology.
The course explores the following chapters:
1. evolutionof dental implants safety regulations
2. histology and physiology of bone
3. biology of osseointegration and morphology of periimplant tissues
4. materials for dental implants focusing on titanium properties
5. macro and micro architecture of dental implants
6. biology of bone reactions during the evolution of osseointegration
7. microphenomeno on the surface of the dental implants during the process of osseointegration
8. infection of periimplant tissues
9. biomechanics of implant restoration
10. risk factors in implantology
11. prognosis, survival and success of dental implant
The course is supported by a book: George Makris “Biology of dental Implants” pp. 1-551, University Studio Press -2005.
Small research projects are encouraged through the semester.
