FERREIRA, Jean Paulo Rodolfo et al. The Importance of Implantology in the Undergraduate Program and the Experience of an Institution. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.3, pp.525-531. ISSN 0718-381X.

The aim of this study was to identify the teaching discipline of Implantology in all the dental schools in Brazil and report the 9 years of experience after the induction of this material in a teaching institution. The universal sample consisted of dental schools accredited by the Federal Council of Dentistry (n= 198). The results were analyzed with the SPSS Statistics IBM program. It was observed that the discipline of Implantology is offered by 26.9% of the institutions in the fourth year of the undergraduate course. The format of the lessons is 83.3% theory and laboratory. It is also important to note that 2.5% of the institutions do not offer Implantology as a discipline, and in 33.3% of the cases, it appears as a mandatory subject. In order to report the experience, it was observed that the patients' quality of life increased after implantation, and 69.8% classified mastication as excellent after placement of the implant element. Thus, the format offered in the discipline of Implantology proved quite variable according to each institution. The high levels of satisfaction with dental implants and the increased demand for this procedure allowed a suggestion for a possible standardization of the discipline.
