Simplified Third-Molar Impactions
Simplified 3rd Molar Impactions – Indications, Procedures, Complications
Are you removing some third-molar impactions? When and at what age should impacted third molars be removed and when should they not be removed? When and how do you do an operculectomy? When should there be a coronectomy? Should you have a cone beam CT? When and how do you make the incisions, and should there be a release incision? If so, where? What are the potential clinical challenges? These are some of the questions answered by Dr. Koerner in this course. If you want to include these procedures in your practice, join us to learn the principles and procedures and how to perform them according to established standards. Dr. Koerner shares how to evaluate indications for third-molar removal, potential difficulty, and successfully treat in your practice or refer if needed.
For many years, Dr. Koerner has written books and articles, filmed instructional videos, and taught hands-on courses on third-molar surgery. His courses have been immensely popular with PCC participants. We are excited to include this all-new course for any practitioner looking to expand or perfect the oral surgical procedures offered in his or her practice.
