The central and eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa team of NUVO, recently organised a dental implantology course on fresh human cadavers with NUVO ConicalFIT in Ankara in Turkey. This two-day course was aimed at helping dentists achieve a higher level of clinical comfort with a range of soft-tissue surgical procedures. It was presented by well-known Turkish dentists Prof. Doruk Koçyiğit, Dr Oğuz Ozan and Dr Tolga Pekperdahcı.

The first day covered theory on oral implant surgery techniques and implant placement with NUVO ConicalFIT. This implant system features an internal conical connection in a naturally tapered body design, maximising treatment versatility and simplicity in all bone types.

For most of the second day, the participants worked on fresh frozen human heads, two participants working together to simulate the reality of surgical procedures. They also attended lectures in which the speakers demonstrated all the techniques

Thanks to this training, some of the course participants encountered NUVO ConicalFIT for the first time, while others had the opportunity to learn more about using this implant system. Dr Gabriela Motelica from Moldova stated: “Owing to its conical shape, it has a perfect fit between the prosthetic part and the implant itself. It doesn’t create any supplementary forces on the cortical bone. Dentists need to continually improve their knowledge; therefore, I am grateful for this experience with the good trainers here.”

The training was performed in TORLAK Laboratories, which was established in 2021 with the aim of the provision of focused anatomy and surgery training on cadavers. Based at Ankara University Technopolis, TORLAK has become an efficient education and training centre for head and neck anatomy and surgery in Turkey and surrounding countries.

“On the second day, the participants attended lectures in which the speakers demonstrated all the techniques by live video transmission and live and videotaped surgeries. They then spent the majority of the day working on fresh frozen human heads, two participants working together to simulate the reality of surgical procedures.”
