Oral Surgery Secrets 

Instructor:  Karl Koerner, DDS, MS

Accomplish "surgical" extractions and other oral surgery procedures faster and more predictably with less worry. This popular hands-on course presents new instruments and techniques that increase efficiency while conserving buccal bone for the sake of future implants and more esthetic bridges. Other similar procedures that use many of the same instruments are included, such as removal of impacted wisdom teeth, tori removal, anterior apicoectomies, excisional biopsies, and easier crown-lengthening procedures. Several options for socket grafting are presented. Other subjects included are case selection, related anatomy, prevention and management of complications, one-drug oral sedation, and local anesthetic concerns. Many of the principles and techniques included in this course are those currently taught in oral surgery residency programs. Life-like models, video clips, and many examples from actual clinical cases are included to best illustrate and teach important points. Go home excited and with your increased abilities in oral surgery!
