Course Description

Many extractions look easy but can soon become difficult, time consuming, and lead to problems. This course reviews the best techniques and instruments to remove “surgical” extractions easily and quickly while conserving bone. It makes exodontia more enjoyable and predictable so it can be performed with greater confidence and less stress.

Along with surgical extractions, it covers multiple extractions and ridge preparation for immediate dentures, avoiding or managing common surgical complications such as sinus misadventures, excessive bleeding, and tuberosity fractures. Also included is predictable socket bone grafting, and other related topics as time permits.

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course you will be able to:

More easily do “surgical” or difficult extractions that frequently occur in general practice.

Be more proficient at ridge preparation for immediate dentures.

Prevent and/or manage complications that can occur during oral surgery such as bleeding, sinus problems, etc.

Perform predictable socket bone grafting.
