In order to place dental implants in a predictable fashion, a minimum amount of horizontal and vertical bone, in addition to a certain width of keratinized tissue, is necessary. Current literature shows that if sockets without a certain thickness of surrounding bone are not grafted, up to 25%–40% of bone width and height can be lost over the first six to 12 months. This webinar will discuss techniques to minimize bone loss during extractions and a step-by-step approach to socket grafting and preservation.
- Discuss the surgical anatomy and evaluation of the surgical patient.
- Learn flap design, extraction techniques and equipment, and the fundamentals of bone grafting.
- Learn a predictable socket grafting technique that will help generate horizontal bone growth and thick keratinized tissue for future dental implant placement.
- Discuss extraction and socket grafting complications and how to handle them.
