The extraction of a tooth is unquestionably accompanied with the loss of alveolar bone volume. The loss of bone volume may compromise the possibility for successful dental implant rehabilitation.  It may also alter of the emergence profile creating an aesthetic & functional compromise. Teeth extractions can be challenging in numerous situations including posterior teeth with divergent roots, teeth adjacent to vital structures, teeth with existing pathology or fractured and retained roots.  An atraumatic tooth extraction protocol which is consistent, reproducible and ergonomic  will be discussed to reduce trauma and predictably remove teeth. Post-extraction socket grafting techniques have been controversial and unpredictable due to the varying techniques and grafting materials available.  This hands-on course will discuss an immediate socket regeneration technique that has given predictable results in private practice for more than 10 years & will review grafting materials membranes, growth factors & PRF

Didactic Component

  • Consequences of tooth extraction
  • Classifications, case selection & alternative grafting techniques
  • Risk analysis & complications
  • Description of socket regeneration & atraumatic extractions through a number of clinical cases
  • Use of handpieces, osseosets, piezotome surgery and instruments  for teeth extraction
  • Selection of bone grafting materials - autologous, xenograft & allograft materials
  • Collagen membrane selection & handling
  • Use of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
  • Flap design, suture types and suturing techniques

Hands-on Component

Using pig’s jaws, participants will simulate:

  • An atraumatic extraction technique
  • Immediate socket grafting
  • Manipulation of collagen membranes
  • Application of PRF
  • Flap design, suture types and suturing techniques
