Socket Grafting and Atraumatic Extraction Strategies

Your best friend presents to the practice on a Friday afternoon in pain and with a fractured central incisor.  It’s been a compromised root canal treated tooth for a long time and you both know there’s no option but to extract the tooth.  What do you do?  If you leave it, the weekend is going to be horrific.  You want the best possible outcome for her and your actions now will dictate her future aesthetic and implant outcomes.

Sound like a familiar story?  If it wasn’t your best friend it was still a patient who you want to treat as family. This course will give you a step-by-step protocol to take home to give the best possible care when extracting teeth and grafting the socket to aid with regeneration.

You’ll leave the course able to take action confidently immediately and also give the patient the best outcome with socket grafting technqiues. 

Learn the technique that A/Prof. Max Guazzato has particularly around immediate socket regeneration techniques that has given realistic and predictable results in private practice.  The course is non-biased, doesn’t favour one company over another, evidence-based and will discuss all products.

Didactic component:  

·       An consistent, reproducible and ergonomic extraction protocol and why this technique?

·       Extracting in the aesthetic zone, posterior teeth with divergent roots, adjacent to vital structures, around pathology

·       How to avoid loss of alveolar bone volume, improve emergence profile and avoid future compromise on aesthetics and function.

·       Classifications, case selection & grafting options and treatment planning

·       Risk analysis and complications to avoid

·       Socket Grafting options & techniques- bone grafting materials - autologous, xenograft, alloplastic & allograft materials

·       Use of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

·       Membranes & how to handle membranes

·       Flap design, suture types and suturing techniques

·       Equipment you need (and don’t) - Use of handpieces, osseosets, piezotome surgery and instruments for teeth extraction

·       Clinical cases, Outcomes and how to achieve them

 

 Hands-on component:  

·       Using pig’s jaws with long thin divergent roots we will relate it back to the clinical cases and simluate

o   Practice atraumatic extraction techniques

o    Practice immediate socket grafting techniques

·       Favourable flap designs

·       Suturing, manipulation of collagen membranes & use of tacs

·       Application of PRF and blood taking techniques

Advanced Dental Bone Grafting with A/Prof. Max Guazzato

There’s a patient who is literally begging for dental implant therapy.  She can’t present well in public with flappy dentures and is not a candidate for a bridge.  A CBCT scan is taken and it’s obvious that her sinuses dip low into the space where the implants should go and in other places her alveolar ridge is thin.  You want to know what can be done and if you have the skills and equipment to help her regain her confidence.  What are the treatment planning options and is she a good candidate for sinus lifting or block bone grafting? What alternatives do you have?  You want to build your reputation and have all her friends see you at the practice after you’ve finished helping her.

 

Block bone grafting & sinus lifting are the most common treatment options used in situations of severe loss of alveolar bone for dental implant treatment. This course will give you hands-on, in depth knowledge of these treatment options and risk analysis. It will give you a thorough platform for skill development. Block bone grafting and sinus lifting are complex regenerative procedures for very experienced clinicians and specialists.  Obvious….but good to mention anyway- please be aware that complex procedures should always be performed on patients after numerous pre-clinical simulations and then under strict supervision & mentorship of an experienced clinician.

 

Didactic component:

• Anatomy of the maxillary sinus for the purpose of lateral & transcrestal sinus grafts

• Anatomy of the chin & ramus for bone block harvesting purposes

• Diagnosis of pathology in the sinus and when to refer to ENT physician

• CBCT scan analysis, risk assessment, treatment planning and treatment sequence

• Donor sites- ramus, chin, bone substitutes

• Use of Piezo surgery and specific instrumentation for complex grafting procedures

• Flap designs & layered suturing techniques

• Patient post-operative care

• Patient cases with history, assessment, treatment options, step-by-step treatment

 

Hands-on Component:

• Participants will prepare the harvest site

• Prepare the donor site to fit the harvested bone

• Participants will simulate a lateral sinus lift procedure

• Use piezo surgery, fixation screws, collagen membranes, membrane tacs, chisels, mallets

• Use of particulate bone around the site

• Complex flap designs, relieving incisions for tension free closure and suturing techniques

SYDNEY

Sat 27th OCT 2018

Join us for a fun-filled day of chair-side CAD/CAM ceramics.  Being the Halloween weekend we've decided to add a little bit of extra decoration, magic, and food just for fun. You can even opt to dress-up for a chance to win prizes!

It doesn’t matter if you own a chair-side CAD/CAM unit or if you send your ceramic work to your technician, this hands-on course will give you a good helping of ceramic restoration knowledge.  Expert knowledge will be shared about ceramics in general. More importantly, this workshop will give you tips and tricks to make your ceramic restorations last.   If you have been filled with dismay on looking at your appointment book to see a couple of ceramic onlays booked in, or if you’d like to perform ceramic restorations predictably, this is the course to do. The lectures and workshop will answer those questions that come up when you are in the ‘hot seat’. Is the tooth preparation adequate and will the restoration fit? More importantly, does the ceramic restoration look good and will it last the distance? When it’s time to choose a material for a clinical situation do you know when and why to choose a certain product? What about the paradigm shift in resistance and retention form? And how do you predictably bond ceramic restorations to the tooth?   Understanding the intricacies of ceramics is the key to longevity, minimising failures and remakes and hence increasing your profits. The objective of the course is to focus on the key factors that will lead to a quality and long lasting ceramic restoration for your practice and your patients.

We have our costumes ready however dressing-up for the course is not compulsory so please do NOT feel obliged.  We'll have lots of fun regardless!
