The experience and research accumulated over the last 40 years has transformed implantology into one of the most precise and trustworthy treatments. It therefore forms an obligatory part of daily clinical activity.

However, the aim of dental implantology is not to fit dental implants, but instead to replace lost teeth in order to restore aesthetic and chewing functions.

This master's course has been designed to ensure that general dentists acquire the skills required to carry out dental implant treatments, both in simple and complex cases, from the first consultation to prosthetic rehabilitation.

Particular importance will be given to complex immediate loading cases, post-extraction implant cases and manipulation of soft tissue.

Each student will fit 50 implants on patients provided by the centre itself and mentored by the teaching staff.
