INTERACTIVE 2-DAY CADAVER WORKSHOP AND OBSERVATION

PFAST: PTERYGOID FIXATED ARCH STABILIZING TECHNIQUE

Presented by
Dr. Dan Holtzclaw, DDS, MS & Dr. Simon Oh, DDS, FICOI

August 20th & 21st, 2021

Princeton, NJ

Course Description

Although they have been in use for over 50 years, Pterygoid implants are one of the least understood styles of dental implant treatment.

This may be due to the fact that pterygoid implants are widely considered to be one of the most difficult fixtures to place in all of implant dentistry.

This 2-day course will provide knowledge and guidance for incorporating this style of treatment into your full arch dental implant practice.

After didactic learning about pterygoid and zygomatic implants, course participants will receive hands-on guidance for the placement of pterygoid and zygomatic implants on both models and cadavers.
