Course Objective

This course is developed to enable the clinician to acquire the knowledge and confidence to perform bone grafting procedures in the maxilla & mandible. The program will cover surgical anatomy, pre/post surgical considerations, key steps to performing successful bone grafting procedures, socket/ridge preservation, ridge augmentation using allograft, monocortical autogenous block grafts, radiographic sinus interpretation, sinus lifts, platelet rich plasma and pathways for infection. Clinicians will have the unique opportunity to use the Piezotome in the cadaver lab, which can be used for Implant Surgery, Sinus Lift, Bone Grafting, and Atraumatic Extraction.

By having a thorough understanding of these bone grafting procedures the clinician should be able to improve the success of their implant and non implant supported cases, as well as increasing esthetic results for patients.

After the course the clinician will have a comprehensive manual and a model to take back to their office and reference at any time.
