Michael A. Pikos, DDS - Live Surgical Course

The Advanced Bone Grafting I course is designed for the clinician with prior implant experience who desires to implement millennium technology and state of the art bone grafting protocols for their implant practice.


The focus will be the application of the Pikos Institute Philosophy to optimize hard tissue architecture for predictable surgical implant placement and restoration. High technology interactive CT diagnosis will be utilized to improve patient selection, graft site evaluation, harvest site assessment and minimize complications. Contemporary surgical bone grafting protocols, including ridge expansion, sinus grafting, and autogenous block grafting, will be presented with LIVE Surgical demonstration and hands-on model surgery. A dedicated section of the course will address bone grafting complications.
