Event Details

This workshop will be presented by Dr Steve Soukoulis, Periodontist.

Course Outline/Overview and Learning Outcomes
Extracting teeth is part of everyday clinical practice.  We know that once a tooth has been removed the inevitable consequence is dimensional bone and soft tissue alterations. One option which has scientifically shown to maintain ridge volumes once teeth have been removed is Socket and Ridge Preservation.  Socket and Ridge Preservation are some of the easiest methods of hard tissue preservation and augmentation in future implant sites.  If the science behind extraction socket healing is applied to our daily work, patients and dentists will benefit.  This hands-on course will: 
•  cover different techniques for hard tissue augmentation to preserve ridges 
•  instruct attendees on some suturing specific techniques. (pigs’ heads will be used for the hands-on component).
