Unit B – Bone Grafting Essentials – Cleveland Venue – 7 hours CE

  • January 13, 2018
    7:30 am - 5:00 pm

It is recommended that attendees have basic surgical and implant placement experience.

This course will provide the dental practitioner with a thorough understanding of bone grafting indications, principles and techniques for particulate maxillary and mandibular onlay grafts. Attendees will learn soft tissue management techniques, including vertical and horizontal releasing incisions, to maximize exposure to the surgical site as well as suturing techniques for successful passive tissue closure over the grafted site.

This one day course is designed for the doctor and TEAM who wants to further expand their capabilities as an implant surgeon in compromised implant receptor site situations. A proper diagnosis of the surgical site is critical when expanding into less than ideal conditions, therefore, a comprehensive review of radiographic and clinical site evaluation will be presented.  Proper soft tissue management is critical to bone graft success therefore tissue flap design, manipulation and passive closure techniques will be illustrated.  Bone graft materials, membrane selection, and PRP/PRF protocols will be covered.  The procedures covered in this course will include the placement of implants when grafting is anticipated, particulate onlay grafts, and other grafting procedures essential to those who place implants. Case presentations showing these specific techniques will be emphasized during this course.

Lecture, slides, and video presentations are included in the lecture portion of this program. Additionally, there are live presentations of the techniques learned as well as the “hands on” portion which reinforces those techniques. Bringing loupes and accompanying illumination is recommended.
