Bone Grafting, Implant Placement & Soft Tissue Management: The Real Deal

Over this unique three-day course, you will experience 6 live surgeries and engage with world-class clinicians during interactive presentations.  On the third day, you will spend time in our educational laboratory working on fresh human cadavers, having the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills discussed during the course.

Day 1 & 2

Three Live Surgeries Each Day

Lecture Topics Include:

  • Guided bone regeneration (GBR) with membranes
  • Flap designs to maintain primary closure in all situations
  • Ideal socket regeneration
  • Implant placement in atrophic ridges
  • Immediate implant placement in all areas of the mouth and all types of defect morphologies
  • Indications for Piezoelectric handpiece
  • Palatal harvesting of connective tissue grafts
  • Rationale and use of biologics
  • Allograft selection and use
  • Root treatment to maximize long term success
  • Root coverage techniques with autogenous grafts and allograft
  • Soft tissue grafting with GBR therapy
  • Soft tissue grafting at implant placement
  • Decision trees for material and technique selection
