We will also cover radiological indications for extractions and case studies. The hands-on wet lab procedures will include reviewing mucoperiosteal flap design techniques for difficult teeth such as upper and lower canine teeth, upper fourth premolars, and lower first molars, and oral fistula repair techniques.

  1. Indications and case studies for surgical extractions
  2. Radiology techniques and positioning
  3. Oral nasal fistula identification and surgical repair techniques
  4. Surgical extractions of canine teeth, upper fourth premolars and lower first molars (step by step techniques)
  1. Proper flap design and closure for surgical extractions
  2. Surgical extraction of maxillary canine teeth and lower first molars
  3. Surgical extraction of maxillary upper fourth premolars
  4. Oral fistula repair techniques
Learning Objectives:

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  1. Illustrate clinical presentations, pathophysiology, diagnostics and treatment options for surgical and multi rooted teeth extractions
  2. Perform proper mucoperiosteal flaps depending on clinical presentation and type of tooth to be extracted
  3. Perform surgical extractions of canine teeth and multi-rooted teeth such as the upper fourth premolars and lower first molars
  4. Perform oral nasal fistula repair using single flap techniques
