Course Description The success of a dental implant depends largely on the quality and the quantity of bone at the time of placement. Grafting a socket at th etime of extraction can facilitate the implant placement and in many situations save time and money for the patient by eliminating more involved grafts at a later date. This lecture will review a classification of sockets with a decision tree of techniques to graft based on the anatomy of the remaining socket. Consideration will also be taken to preserve and create an adequate zone of kerantinized tissue. This course will include a hands-on portion in order the practice the techniques discussed. Course Objective
  • Understand the ideal quality and quantity of bone necessary for long term implant success
