A 90-minute online hands-on training experience featuring the #HOMEKIT(R) with Dr Cecilia So

Following tooth extraction, the natural healing process invariably results in loss of alveolar ridge height and width.  Up to half of the ridge width can be lost within 12 months of extraction.  Such significant loss can compromise our ability to restore the defect without significant surgical interventions at a later stage.  The use of appropriate biomaterials at the time of extraction can effectively compensate for much of this bone loss.  Preserving the ridge dimensions will help simplify future treatments.

All general dentists performing extractions must be aware of the benefits of ridge preservation and have the ability to present this information to their patients prior to extraction.  This will ensure that patients can make informed decisions about their treatment.  The first part of this interactive online hands-on course will present the scientific justification for performing ridge preservation and discuss the general surgical principles involved.  The second part will demonstrate two hands-on procedures in a step-by-step manner.  Participants will be able to follow and perform these tasks, from the comfort of their own home or clinic, using Geistlich biomaterials on a model specifically designed for ridge preservation training.
