Course Overview
Columbia University College of Dental Medicine (CDM) and Augma Bone Cement Academy (ABCA) invite you to participate in this exclusive 2-day hands-on, live-surgery bone augmentation course, focused on bone graft cements. Bone cements constitute a paradigm shift in maxillofacial and dental bone augmentation.
The surgical protocols are less invasive, and don’t require a membrane placement. Thereby, traditional post-operative complications due to graft exposure are completely eliminated.

Participants will learn how to confront a large diversity of bone deficient situations, from simple to complex. Special attention will be given to the parameters for success in the aesthetic zone, and how to avoid post-operative complications.

Case evaluation and treatment planning will be reviewed in depth.  You will receive a broad overview of the best treatment choices to guarantee the success and predictability of the augmentation procedure in complex cases.

The course is intended for small groups therefore the places are limited. Make sure to register early to secure your place
