Level 2: Posterior Single-Tooth Implants

Utilizing procedure-based education1, this level illustrates the basic surgical and prosthetic concepts of implant therapy through a presentation of two single-tooth posterior implant cases.


Throughout this level, the courses cover topics including:

  • Concepts for determining implant position in treatment planning
  • Implant design features and their impact on outcomes
  • Introduction to the Astra Tech Implant System EV
  • Primary stability vs. insertion torque
  • Custom healing abutments
  • Overview of guided surgery 


Upon completing this level, participants will understand how to place and restore a single-tooth implant in the posterior zone. Participants are encouraged to continue their education in Level 3, which focuses on the single-tooth implant in the anterior zone.

1. The implant curriculum is an interactive, procedure-based series of courses that use individual cases to teach current implant treatment. This approach is in contrast to conventional dental education that focuses more on didactic topics and theory. The purpose of using this educational approach is to highlight the patients and procedures found in everyday clinical practice, where the most important concepts are observed and discussed in multiple clinical scenarios.
