Hands-on exercises are divided into 4 sessions including, treatment planning modalities, immediate implant placement, bone grafting, ridge expansion, suturing techniques, and a lot more.
• Treatment Planning Immediate Implants will start with establishing diagnosis and treatment plans on models for atraumatic extractions, immediate placement, and socket grafting. Different techniques and modalities will be practiced.
• GBR with PRF will include, a detailed hands-on protocol for tenting, venipuncture, PRF and iPRF. Fabrication of steaky bone using PRF and iPRF. Manipulation and usage of steaky bone for socket grafting and other grafting procedures.
• Sinus Elevation Module will include an internal and lateral approach for sinus elevation on models utilizing the hydraulic lift kits as well as the traditional Caudwell luc approach.
• Bone Blocks and Flap Management will include incisions and flap designs on the pig jaw; extraction and immediate placement of dental implants, manipulation of surgical flaps; obtaining of tension-free closure; elongating flaps for primary closure; Ridge expansion and splits using piezosurgery and discs; harvesting blocks and cylinders; tacking membranes using screws for ridge augmentation and 3-step suturing techniques.
