Bone Grafting & GTR Level 1

Sep 12, 2014

Today, conscientious clinicians are obtaining predictable results grafting fresh extraction sockets for ridge preservation utilizing the newest bone replacement materials and guided tissue membranes. These procedures ultimately result in improved esthetics, simplified prosthetics and importantly, happy patients.

Guided bone regeneration can be easily introduced into your practice beginning with the highly predictable procedure, extraction socket grafting. This procedure will result in preservation of the alveolar structure and protection of the surrounding soft tissue allowing for the ideal treatment plan for your patient.

The first step for a successful socket graft is an atraumatic, instrument assisted extraction. Then, the proper preparation of the socket is key. Which graft material to use will depend upon the treatment plan for the patient. An examination of a wide variety of products will give the clinician an insight into product selection for every specific application.

A masterful approach to solving the problem of: (1) voids around the placement of the immediate implant (2) grafting to maintain the bony housing around an extraction site for esthetics and (3) grafting sockets to obtain the optimal amount of bone for implant placement will all be discussed with numerous clinical examples.

Upon the completion of this seminar and the hands-on exercises, you should be familiar with the when, why, and how of basic bone grafting in your practice. Please join us for this fun filled seminar and hands on course to kick-start your grafting successes.
