This course will highlight several techniques that facilitate a more esthetic,
functional and predictable result in implant dentistry, starting with extraction.
Discussion will focus on some of the most commonly asked questions in
-grafting be performed after tooth extraction?
-Which is the best graft materials to use?
-What type of interimprovisional restorations to use in order to minimize tissue loss?
-What is the current research and what diagnostic tools lead to the correct decisionsregarding immediate implant placement versus delayed implant placement.
This course is designed for any clinician managing extraction sites and who
place implants implants and is the first in our series on implant site development
and essential bone grafting. The hands-on portion will focus on minimally
invasive extraction and grafting techniques as well as immediate implant
placement and provisional restoration management.
