Practicing Implantologists wishing to expand their repertoire. However, all colleagues at any stage of their implant experience are invited to apply, as there will be a benefit at any stage of the journey, even if just in the planning stage.
This two day intensive course presents the modality of bone manipulation in its various forms within the field of dental/oral implantology.
In the current climate of emphasis on guided bone regeneration (GBR) techniques and graft/augmentation materials, these critical and immensely useful techniques have fallen by the wayside as there is less commercial impetus to teach them. Consequently, we would submit that bone manipulation could legitimately be described as a forgotten artform.
We will cover the history of bone manipulation, the anatomy and physiology of the osteo-periosteal complex, various techniques of bone manipulation including the importance of vital autogenous bone and the advantages of these techniques.
Importantly we will present the means by which bone manipulation can be incorporated into current treatment modalities.
Day two of the course will be a hands-on session to enable participants to practice the techniques presented on day one and attendance at this will be limited.

Mukesh, Sam and Azhar have known each other for over thirty years. During this time, they have been firm friends, professional colleagues, practice partners and now partners at Practical Implantology.
Although very different individuals, they share the same core values that underpin their personal and professional approach to dentistry and specifically implantology.
Jointly, they have over sixty five years of dental experience and between them have placed over 15,000 dental implants. They have experience in a wide range of implant procedures including bone manipulation and grafting, single and multiple/full arch cases.
Mukesh, Sam and Azhar have experience and training in mentoring and are ADI mentors. They have been vocational training (VT) trainers and coached countless colleagues over the years.
They, themselves have participated in lifelong learning and have been fortunate to have been trained by some of the giants of the implant field notably Professor Hilt Tatum from whom they have also absorbed and assimilated the ethics of patient interaction that underpins their approach to dentistry to this very day.
They are passionate in sharing what they have learned over their professional lives. Mukesh often talks about empowerment of the dentist. This includes sharing of all knowledge in an open, accessible, honest, unbiased and practical way that allows a dentist to expand on their skills.
“This course ensures that dentists build skills, experience and confidence in a safe structured way that allows them to introduce learned knowledge and techniques into their practice in a reproducible and predictable way for the benefit of their patients and enrichment of their professional lives”.
To compliment the learning Mukesh, Sam and Azhar are happy to provide ongoing support and mentoring for anyone that wishes. They hope to create a win-for-all situation.
As Mukesh says “together we are stronger“.
We developed and have been performing bone manipulation techniques for over 50 years. This includes ridge expansion, inter-positional augmentation techniques and of course the sinus augmentation procedure, which we also introduced. We also introduced onlay bone augmentation into implantology 49 years ago, but realize that, when possible, bone manipulation is safer, simpler, more predictable and less expensive.
I realised early on in my implant career that the body is a wonderful organism that is programmed to heal. So surgical techniques need to respect the body and work with it not against it. This means excellent surgical technique, delicate soft tissue handling and maintaining a blood supply to the surgical site.
Respect these principles and the body will heal and create the outcomes we desire. Bone manipulation techniques are a skillset that requires patience, skill and dedication to master but once this is achieved are of lifelong benefit to the practitioner.
I am passionate that the field of dental implantology should be led by clinicians who have their patients’ interests to the fore and not by companies whose primary interest is the sale of graft products and profits.
I have been teaching all my clinical life and in the early 1990’s came to work in the United Kingdom where, amongst others I met and worked with Azhar, Sam and Mukesh who were my friends, colleagues but also my students. I worked with them for approximately a quarter of a century.
From an early juncture it was evident that they would develop to be leaders in the field of implant dentistry in the UK and abroad. It gives me great pleasure to have played a part in their formative years and career development.
I am so proud that they are passing on their skills and knowledge to their professional colleagues so that the body of evidence-based knowledge is enriched for the benefit of patients and practitioners. It is important to make dental implantology accessible to all in the dental profession and therefore patients safe in the knowledge that they are obtaining a service that will improve the quality of their life.

Azhar, Sam and Mukesh have taken Hilt Tatum’s Bone Manipulation further, to be incorporated into modern implant concepts.
The aim is to achieve good functional and aesthetic outcome for patients and dentists in more predictable and biologically sounds ways with less reliance on materials and bone substitutes. These techniques require time, skill and dedication to master but they are within the capacity of all to do so. The journey is definitely worthwhile, and this course is an excellent start.
