The Misch International Implant Institute™ was developed in 1984 to help set and elevate the standard of care in implant dentistry using a hands-on approach. Now world renown, the Institute’s goal is to remain at the forefront of implant dentistry through research, education and its unique clinical applications. Using these tools and a well-trained faculty, the Institute is able to provide its students with the most progressive and documented information.
Carl E. Misch, BS, DDS, MDS, PhD (hc), FACD, FICD
Carl E. Misch is Clinical Professor and Director of Dental Implants, Kornberg School of Dental Medicine, Temple University. He is co-chairman of the International Congress of Oral Implantology (ICOI), the worlds largest implant organization. He has written four textbooks on Implant dentistry, both on surgery and prosthetics, which have become the most popular books in all of dentistry. He was the Director of the Oral Implantology Residency Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine from 1989 to 1996. Dr. Misch has maintained a private practice restricted to implant surgery (bone grafting and implant placement) and related prosthetics for more than 25 years.
The Surgical Program was developed by Dr. Carl Misch for practitioners whose interest in is the surgical phase of implant dentistry. This five session course emphasizes the differences between bone divisions and the different nuances of each type of surgery. Participants will attend specific lectures on treatment planning before moving to root form surgery and membrane grafting. These course are followed-up by advanced techniques such as sinus grafting and immediate load surgery. Dr. Misch’s book, Contemporary Implant Dentistry, 3rd Edition, will be provided at Session 1 and handouts at each session relating to the covered topics.

Surgical Program
S1  Patient Evaluation & Treatment Planning
The first session’s major objective is treatment planning for the partially edentulous patient. Prosthetic options, patient force factors, bone density, implant positions, number of implant abutments, ideal implant size for each tooth location, and bone volume related treatment options are presented in detail. CT and radiographic interpretation workshops and hands-on suturing techniques and implant insertion in the treatment models are also provided. The surgical procedure and prosthesis type presented in the first session is the replacement of a mandibular single posterior missing tooth.

S2  Root Form Surgery for Division A Bone
The second session of the Misch International Implant Institute™ advances the clinician’s skill level and knowledge of root forms. The focus of this session will include surgery, uncovery and short and long term complications for root forms. Complications presented include: excessive bleeding during surgery, nerve damage and bone loss during initial healing. The second surgical session addresses partial and completely edentulous mandibular overdentures and fixed prostheses for multiple adjacent missing teeth in the posterior mandible. Altered surgical approaches, dependent upon bone density are presented in detail. The bone volume classification covered at this session is Misch-Judy Division A and B. Hands-on labs will give clinicians the chance to apply learned techniques in a controlled environment.

S3  Membrane Bone Grafting for Division B Bone
The third session of the MIII™ is primarily concerned with two implant issues: Maxillary anterior single tooth implants and barrier membrane particulate bone grafts. The volume of bone and related procedures covered in the session is for Division B bone augmentation using a “layered approach” as developed by Dr. Misch. Atraumatic extractions and socket grafting are also presented. Indications for extraction and immediate implant insertion, esthetic complications of implant position and angulation are also covered in detail.

S4  Sinus Grafts
The fourth session is dedicated to treatment of the posterior maxilla. Sinus lifts and sinus grafting are presented in detail. The unique aspects of the program include maxillary sinus pathology and pharmacology. Complications of this region are also covered in detail. The hands-on laboratory sessions are performed on unique models developed specifically for the MIII™ for both sinus lifts and grafts.
