Oral Surgery Secrets

Product Details

Accomplish “surgical” extractions, socket grafting, impactions, multiple extractions, and other surgery procedures faster and more predictably with less worry.   This popular hands-on oral surgery course presents new instruments and techniques that increase efficiency while conserving buccal bone for the sake of future implants and more esthetic bridges.  Similar procedures that use many of the same instruments are included. Dr. Koerner incorporates the following information for one of our best hands-on courses:

  • Several options for successful socket grafting
  • Removal of impacted wisdom teeth in younger patients
  • Local anesthetic concerns
  • Multiple extractions and ridge prep for dentures
  • One-drug oral sedation for easier surgery
  • Oral cancer detection including scalpel biopsy
  • Prevention and management of complications such as bleeding, infection, root retrieval, sinus issues and others
  • Selecting cases appropriate for your ability
  • Oral anatomy as it pertains to dento-alveolar surgery

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 ready to do more surgery with greater confidence and skill!
