Course Summary:

What questions to ask the patient before an extraction and how to plan for a potential “bleeder”, a diabetic or patients on oral bisphosphonates and which hemostatic agents to have handy.
  • Tips on assessing radiographs before extracting a tooth to plan and prepare for an action plan. Clues that the extraction will be a “difficult” one.
