The emphasis of this presentation is on routine extractions that become more difficult than expected. It covers advanced instrumentation and procedures that minimize bone removal (atraumatic extractions) while not sacrificing speed. It also includes a discussion of how to avoid or manage many common complications like bleeding problems (mainly patients on anticoagulants), nerve injury, sinus problems, and infection.
When you can do "surgical" extractions well - this same knowledge of hard and soft tissue management helps with related surgeries, like socket preservation, alveoplasty, frenectomies, exostosis removal, mini implants, and other minor dentoalveolar procedures. Dr. Koerner clarifies current standards of care related to these procedures.
Learning Objectives: This course will enable the general dentist to:
- Broaden the range of surgery procedures done in the office
- Avoid or treat common surgical complications
- Do surgical procedures more quickly and more predictably than you could before this course
- More clearly understand surgical "standards of care" for today's dental practice.
- Have a better grasp of what surgical procedures need to be referred.
- Do socket bone grafts according to current, commonly used techniques.
