Oral Surgery for General Practitioners: Take Yourself to the Next Level of Proficiency
This course is full to capacity but we are accepting waiting list registrations.
This informative and interactive hands-on workshop will teach general practitioners concepts and skills in oral surgery. Video clips on the fundamentals of oral surgery and model work will be sent to participants in advance to prepare them for the program. Hit the ground running with essentials of using a blade, how to effectively use a periosteal elevator for tissue reflection, what flap to use and where, optimizing use of elevators and forceps, how much force is too much, elevators vs. luxators, how to use a “skinny” bur in the PDL and other basics.
During this workshop, you will learn how to apply surgical extraction techniques on life-like dentoform models that simulate patients. Hands-on activity will include: faster and easier surgical extractions; how to quickly and safely remove root tips; sectioning of multi-rooted teeth; multiple extractions with alveoloplasty; and basics of maxillary third molar impactions.
