Socket Grafting 8:30 a.m. – Noon
As dentists, we hear a lot about implants, sinus lifts and ridge grafting. Extraction socket preservation has not been given the attention it deserves. Unfortunately for our patients, most of us are not grafting extraction sites to preserve the alveolar bone. This presentation will help answer your questions about the socket grafting procedure, instruments to use and NEW grafting technologies. The goal of this program is to give you the tools to be able to graft all your future extractions. The key is to get started! Socket grafting is the right thing for your patients and it’s good for your practice. After this course you will be able to perform socket grafting in your office. Socket Grafting: Hands-on Portion
- use quadrant models with soft tissue
- practice on special suturing boards
- proper instruments for successful grafting
- place simulated graft material in a socket
- various suturing techniques and their indications

We will discuss proper osteotomy drilling protocols that are valid across all implant systems. Additionally, students will have an introduction to how to assess implant features and design, as well as proper sizing for various clinical indications. This course will get you started on your journey to successful implant placement and restoration.
