Event Details

Planning, preparation and providing quality care

Dental extractions are not always straightforward and the need for a surgical approach should always be anticipated. This one-day course provides an update for dentists wishing to enhance their skills in dental extractions.

With a combination of lectures, discussion sessions, case presentations and plenty of hands-on sessions, this course will enhance your confidence when treatment planning for exodontia.

This course is intended to be interactive and attendees are encouraged to bring cases, questions and enthusiasm! There will be ample opportunity for informal discussions with presenters. Is there a horror case that you need to confidentially discuss? Have you had adverse outcomes that might be discussed to help colleagues? Have you ‘inherited’ odd instruments that you don’t know what to do with?

Topics include

  • Patient assessment, record keeping and informed consent
  • Practical planning tips
  • Instrument options
  • Anaesthesia
  • Modern extraction techniques
  • Flap design and bone removal
  • Current concepts of Socket augmentation
  • Complications
  • Suturing
  • Post-operative care
