At the completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
1. Describe anatomy and biology of periodontal tissues around natural teeth and dental implants
2. To understand the accepted physiology of healing following an extraction. Specifically the wound healing mechanism as differentiated
from bone fracture healing, the function of blood clot formation, and ridge collapse following extraction.
3. Competently select cases for atraumatic extraction.
4. The function of blood supply and capillary formation, source of calcium in bone deposited at the site vs. calcium present in the graft
material, and the importance of platelet-rich fibrin and growth factors in the success of a socket graft.
5. Describe the procurement and processing of allogenic tissue for dentoalveolar surgery.
6. Identify indications and the application for socket preservation procedures.
7. Learn the rationale and use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as an adjunct to socket grafting.
8. Describe the management post-operative complications.
9. Identification of successful socket replacement graft based on established evidence and fundamental science.
