course overview

The Trefoil system is a breakthrough in efficiency, making fixed, definitive teeth on the day of surgery* a choice for many patients. Thanks to the pre-manufactured titanium bar with a unique fixation mechanism on just three implants, mandibular edentulism can be treated with reduced chair time and increased efficiency. Learn how this solution can be a bridge to a new patient population. A hands-on session is included.
This course is intended for the entire treatment team. The team approach is critical for this training. Success is dependent on the close collaboration between surgeon, restorative doctor, and laboratory technician.
After this one-day course, the participant will…
  • Understand the concept of diagnostics and treatment options for advanced rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible.
  • Be familiar with scientific support material and clinical evidence.
  • Know the indications and limitations of treatment with the Trefoil system.
  • Be able to identify the steps in the surgical and restorative procedure.
  • Be familiar with clinical cases using the Trefoil system and know the benefits for the patient and the clinician.
