“Oral Surgery for the General Dentist: Easier and More Predictable”

Friday, March 6, 2020 – 7:45 AM TO 5:15 PM
8 hrs AGD Oral Surgery Lecture credit – IDBE pending approval

Many extractions look easy but can soon become difficult, time consuming, and lead to complications. This course reviews the best techniques and instruments to remove “surgical” extractions easily and quickly while conserving bone. From that primary emphasis, Dr. Koerner branches to other related surgery subjects that use many of the same instruments and principles.

These include:

  • The most common suturing techniques and materials,
  • avoiding sinus problems,
  • predictable socket grafting techniques (without company hype),
  • ridge preparation for immediate dentures,
  • bleeding management during surgery,
  • a review of moderate third molar impaction essentials (anatomy and step-by-step guidelines).

COURSE OBJECTIVES 

As a result of attending this course, the dentist will be able to:

  1. More easily do “surgical” or difficult extractions that frequently occur in general practice.
  2. Be more proficient at ridge preparation for immediate dentures.
  3. Select appropriate socket grafting cases and have the knowledge to do them successfully.
  4. Prevent and/or manage bleeding problems that can occur during oral surgery.
  5. Better understand patient selection and risks of third molar surgery.
  6. Perform oral surgery according to current standards of care
