course overview

Day 1: Overview

Your best friend presents to the practice on a Friday afternoon in pain and with a fractured central incisor. It’s been a compromised root canal treated tooth for a long time and you both know there’s no option but to extract the tooth. What do you do? If you leave it, the weekend is going to be horrific. You want the best possible outcome for her and your actions now will dictate her future aesthetic and implant outcomes.
Sound like a familiar story? If it wasn’t your best friend it was still a patient who you want to treat as family. This course will give you a step-by-step protocol to take home to give the best possible care when extracting teeth and grafting the socket  to aid with regeneration.
Learn the technique that A/Prof. Max Guazzato has particularly around immediate socket regeneration techniques that has given realistic and predictable results in private practice. The course is non-biased, doesn’t favour one company over another, evidence-based and will discuss a variety of products.

Didactic component 

•    A consistent, reproducible and ergonomic extraction protocol and why this technique?
•    Extracting in the aesthetic zone, posterior teeth with divergent roots, adjacent to vital structures, around pathology
•    How to avoid loss of alveolar bone volume, improve emergence profile and avoid future compromise on aesthetics and function.
•    Classifications, case selection and grafting options and treatment planning
•    Risk analysis and complications to avoid
•    Socket grafting options and techniques - bone grafting materials
-    autologous, xenograft, alloplastic and allograft materials
•    Use of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
•    Membranes and how to handle membranes
•    Flap design, suture types and suturing techniques
•    Equipment you need (and don’t) - use of handpieces, osseosets, piezotome surgery and instruments for teeth extraction
•    Clinical cases, outcomes and how to achieve them

Hands-on component

•    Using pig’s jaws with long thin divergent roots we will relate it back to the clinical cases and simulate:
•    Practice atraumatic extraction techniques
•    Practice immediate socket grafting techniques
•    Favourable flap designs
•    Suturing, manipulation of collagen membranes and use of tacs
•    Application of PRF and blood taking techniques
