The VISTA Institute Philosophy
We believe that the most important aspect of clinical practice is decision making. For that reason, continuing education courses aim to provide the most updated evidenced-based information. To elevate the clinical skills, each course offers simulated exercises and live surgery demonstration. This allows clinician-learners to grasp the information, practice the techniques and receive feedback. Moreover, clinician-learners observe the protocols demonstrated, so that they can more readily implement what they have learned in their clinical practice.Learn More
Anterior Implant Esthetics
Treatment planning in the anterior maxilla requires special considerations, because mere achievement of osseointegration is not adequate. There are a myriad of factors that can lead to biologic and technical complications, which are not often tolerated by patients. The predictability of any...
Treatment of Fully Edentulous or Terminal Dentition: Immediate Function
Treatment of edentulous patients of dentate patients with terminal dentition to be transitioned to edentulism poses many challenges, including anatomic proximity to critical oral structures (maxillary sinus, nasal floor, mandibular canal), limited bone volume, inappropriate bone topography...
Peri-Implant Plastic Surgery
Peri-implant bone has been long considered the most critical factor for long-term maintenance of dental implant health. Peri-implant soft tissues have frequently been regarded to be important for esthetics of implant-supported restorations. However, recent evidence has demonstrated...
Modular Bone Augmentation: Posterior Mandible
The atrophic posterior mandible has unique anatomic and structural features, including thin alveolar mucosa, proximity of the inferior alveolar nerve and mental foramen. Alveolar ridge augmentation in the posterior mandible requires specific considerations, including, flap design and flap...
