Dental Implantology relates to the placing and restoration of dental implants in people who have lost some or all of their teeth.In the United States any dentist can place and restore dental implants. In many countries this is restricted to those with advanced training
. In Canada for example, dentists need 72 hours of Continuing Education before they can place implants. Many dentists get their implant placement training in intensive short term courses, but these are often only a few days in length so relatively little is taught about treatment planning, post operative care or restorative therapy for implants.
