   Sponsored by Impladent, Ltd.

Thursday, April 7     Time 12:30pm - 2:30pm

Course Description:  3This course will demonstrate a series of simple, cost-effective and predictable and clinical uses for bone regeneration focused on one step alveolar ridge preservation using novel composite graft/collagen materials. The speaker will review cost-effective surgical techniques for both everyday tooth extractions as well as innovative surgical procedures for ridge preservation, sinus lift as well as grafting around immediately-placed implants. The speaker will cover current clinical guidelines and the scientific rationales behind them.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand alveolar ridge preservation and why it is important to graft sockets as well as recognize the clinical indications and benefits of grafting extraction sites.
  2. Demonstrate simple, predictable and cost-effective socket grafting techniques without the use of a membrane.
  3. Review additional surgical applications covering post-extraction grafting around immediate implant placement including filling interproximal and facial gaps after extraction.
  4. Learn novel techniques for successful sinus elevation and bone grafting for immediate implant placement.
