Other soft tissue management covered will include incision design, partial vs. full thickness flaps, and various suturing techniques. The format will consist of lecture, hands on laboratory exercises on dry models and pig jaws. Live surgical observation in our brand new, state of the art teaching center are now a part of the course.
Bone Grafting Course
This course is designed for dentists who have mastered socket preservation and are looking to expand their bone grafting techniques. Diagnosis and treatment planning will be covered along with indications and contraindications for each type of graft. Preventing and treating complications will also be covered. Techniques to be covered include: autogenous block grafts, block allografts, sinus bump as well as the lateral window technique for sinus lifts. Live surgical observation will be included but not guaranteed for every single procedure. There will be at least one surgery per day. Hands on exercises will include outlining the external oblique ridge for an autogenous block harvest and performing a block allograft on a model and a lateral window sinus lift on a model.
The classroom will be arranged to allow for social distancing, we will provide individually packaged breakfast and lunch, and attendance will be limited. Our entire teaching center will be thoroughly cleaned for a safe environment for continuing education.
