Extraction socket preservation techniques can prevent or minimize alveolar ridge resorption and soft tissue collapse. Extraction socket preservation can facilitate implant placement for proper restorative and high esthetic outcome. Atraumatic extraction with optimal socket management at the time of tooth removal and reduce or eliminate future advanced ridge augmentation and guided bone regeneration procedures before implant placement. Poor extraction site management leads to esthetic and functional prosthetic complications.
The overall goal of this hands-on program is to provide the dentist with evidence based information on extraction socket preservation grafts for their patients. Participants will monitor normal healing after Guided Bone Regeneration. They will be placing implants in the healed extraction sites during the Part II session of the program.
- Describe extraction socket techniques.
- Recognize the patterns of ridge resorption after tooth extraction.
- Understand histological events in a healing socket with and without graft material.
- List and describe the potential prosthetic complications that may occur when socket preservation is indicated and not performed.
- Use biological materials for extraction socket preservation.
- Treatment plan implant cases based on final prosthesis.
- Perform atraumatic extraction, manipulate bone graft and membrane.
- Surgically place implants.
