The extraction of a tooth is unquestionably accompanied with the loss of alveolar bone volume. The loss of bone volume may compromise the possibility for successful dental implant rehabilitation. It may also alter of the emergence profile creating an aesthetic and functional compromise.

Teeth extractions can be challenging in numerous situations including posterior teeth with divergent roots, teeth adjacent to vital structures, teeth with existing pathology or fractured and retained roots. An atraumatic tooth extraction protocol which is consistent, reproducible and ergonomic will be discussed to reduce trauma and predictably remove teeth.

The atraumatic extractions and socket regeneration course includes various hands-on components, such as simulating pig’s jaws and learning the atraumatic extraction technique.

Post-extraction socket grafting techniques have been controversial and unpredictable due to the varying techniques and grafting materials available. This hands-on course will discuss an immediate socket regeneration technique that has given results in private practice for more than 10 years and will review grafting materials membranes, growth factors and PRF.
