Models and Methods in Dental Implant Research - 3 TCPS

The course designed for postgraduate students whose participate in field of biomaterials and dental implant re-search. This advance course will present the updating models and the methods used in dental implant research.

Besides a series of lectures, the participants can joint the workshops where they can watch live surgeries of the in vivo studies on animal models. In addition, a live biomechanical tests session will be offered. Additionally, they participate in histological and histomorphometric analysis workshop, when they will visit our laboratory facilities at Department of Biomaterials, Gothenburg University. The following basic topics will be covered:

- Introduction to dental implant research: history of biomaterials, the biological concept of implant-bone interface, and osseointegration of dental implant.

- Comparison of in vitro system versus in vivo system, and in vitro models of biological responses to implants: different cell types and techniques used in investigation of implant surfaces.

- Animal models in implant dentistry: Animals selection in different applications of implant research, surgical facilities, anesthesia, surgical techniques and live experimental animal implant workshop.

- Bone-implant interface analysis: use of different tools and methods for the analysis of bone-implant interface including x-ray, micro-CT, histology and histomorphometric analysis, electron microscopy, and laboratory workshop.

- Biomechanical methods in dental implant research: background on different techniques used to evaluate the bone-implant interface strength, pull out, push-out tests, removal torque, and laboratory workshop.

- Experimental planning

This course is conducted at 50-100% of full working time pace.
