Socket & Ridge Preservation Hands-On Workshop

Event Details

Course Outline:

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 treatment 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 and instruct attendees on some suturing specific techniques. Pig heads will be used for the hands-on component.
