This one day course provides an overview of head and neck anatomy pertinent to socket preservation and guided bone regeneration, the biology of wound healing,  surgical techniques and platelet rich plasma.  This course presents the protocols for atraumatic tooth removal and ridge preservation.  These surgical procedures will be taught with clinically proven step-by-step techniques.

Topics Covered

  • Anatomy & biology of periodontal tissues around teeth & implants
  • Indications & applications for different grafting materials and their techniques
  • Surgical Consent
  • Pre- & post-operative patient instructions; medical considerations, management of post-operative complications
  • Atraumatic tooth removal
  • Surgical principles for successful socket grafting
  • Socket preservation using hard & soft tissue graft material
  • A review of grafting products currently available on the market – human, animal, synthetics, autogenous. Selection process for graft materials based on sound evidence and scientific physiologic fundamentals – for socket grafts and ridge augmentation.

Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:

  • Describe anatomy and biology of periodontal tissues around natural teeth and dental implants
  • To understand the accepted physiology of healing following an extraction.  Specifically the wound healing mechanism as differentiated from bone fracture healing, the function of blood clot formation, and ridge collapse following extraction.
  • Competently select cases for atraumatic extraction
  • The function of blood supply and capillary formation, source of calcium in bone deposited at the site vs. calcium present in the graft material, the purpose of a scaffold for capillary infiltration, and the importance of platelet-rich fibrin and growth factors in the success of a socket graft
  • Describe the procurement and processing of allogenic tissue for dentoalveolar surgery.
  • Identify indications and the application for socket preservation procedures.
  • Learn the rationale and use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as an adjunct to socket grafting
  • Describe the management post-operative complications
  • Identification of successful socket replacement graft based on established evidence and fundamental science
