It is well-documented that when teeth are lost, there is a volumetric change in the alveolus usually at the expense of the facial or buccal cortical plate. Planning, preparing, maintaining and obtaining adequate bone volume and density is critical to the success of surgical implant placement. Minimally traumatic extraction, proper instrumentation and techniques in bone handling can lead to simplified grafting as well as potentially immediate implants. Advances in three-dimensional digital imaging acquired through CBCT can provide clinicians with state-of-the-art tools to accurately diagnose and treatment plan tooth extraction, bone grafting, and potential implant receptor sites. A hands-on model based component will follow the lecture. Participants will perform minimally traumatic extraction, socket preservation, ridge augmentation and suturing techniques.
Lecture and Hands-on Workshop
• Diagnose with 3D imaging modalities: "Triangle of Bone" and more
• Utilize new instrumentation for surgical procedures and tooth extraction
• Planning for immediate and delayed protocols for implant placement
• Understand the benefits and rational for ridge preservation
• Understand how the biologic events during healing of the extraction socket relate to ridge preservation concepts
• Comprehend the role of different biomaterials on ridge preservation techniques
• Understand the differences between ridge preservation and ridge augmentation procedures
• Differentiate between treatment concepts for compromised and non-compromised extraction sockets
• Understand the factors involved in the decision making for immediate implant placement vs. ridge preservation and
delayed implant placement
• Appreciate flap design, membrane utilization and suturing techniques
