Time: 8:00 am - 11:30 am Code: T12 Cost: $30/$45 after Sept. 28 Date: Thursday

CE Credits: 3 hour lecture | Subject: | Recommended for: Dentists, Dental Assistants | Prerequisite: AM lecture required for PM workshop

This rapid paced, half-day course presents the protocols for atraumatic tooth removal and socket grafting. Anatomy, histology, and bone loss patterns will be presented. Indications for site augmentation versus site reconstruction will precede a cursory review of bone graft materials, collagen membrane products and suture materials. An overview of case selection will provide attendees the ability to select cases that will provide predictable results using the techniques demonstrated during the course. Understanding and applying the fundamentals taught at this course will provide the participant with ideal sites for future implant placement resulting in esthetic restorative outcomes.

Conventional extraction techniques often result in reduced bone height and width, with associated esthetic and functional deficits. Learn how to remove the most difficult root tips predictably, with minimal trauma and loss of hard and soft tissue. By applying these newly developed techniques, instruments, and materials, you will learn to perform simple and predictable socket grafting procedures to maintain and augment bone as well as attached gingiva in and the healing extraction socket.

Learning Objectives:

  • Remove the most difficult root tips predictably, with minimal trauma and loss of hard and soft tissue.
  • Understand the didactic and surgical information required to atraumatically extract teeth.
  • Successfully regenerate bone into the tooth sockets immediately after removal.
