Course Description:

Prevention of alveolar bone loss and maintenance of alveolar bone structure is mandatory for the long-term stability of conventional or implant-supported prosthetic replacements. Soft and hard tissue complications can lead to unsatisfactory results for the patient. This course emphasizes the technical aspects of ridge preservation and augmentation in addition to the practical aspects of presenting and preparing cases. Today’s new generation of materials will work predictably in many defects. This hands-on workshop discusses contemporary grafting materials as well as types of defects the clinician can predictably fill. The indications and use of membranes are also covered. This course applies to all dentists placing and/or restoring implants, fixed bridgework and removable prostheses.

Course Objectives:

  • Learn diagnosis and treatment planning for socket preservation and ridge augmentation.
  • Understand when and how to perform atraumatic extractions.
  • Learn the criteria to select the appropriate grafting material.
  • Discover how to select and work with different membranes.
  • Learn to select the correct flap designs for all procedures.
