Course Objectives
Upon Completion of this course, participants will be able to:


Day 1: Hard Tissue Reconstruction

Understand the principles of tissue engineering, bone grafting and osseointegration.

Describe the anatomy, biology, wound healing and timing of bone grafting, and host response to surgery.

Describe the importance of flap design and soft tissue manipulation for successful bone grafting.

Understand and apply the principles of interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for soft tissue and hard tissue grafting procedures.

Successfully place implants into patients with compromised hard and soft tissue anatomy.

Describe indications and step-by-step surgical protocols for mesh particulate grafting, guided bone regeneration, ridge expansion, mandibular block grafting, and sinus grafting.

Understand the expanding application of BMP-2 with intraoral bone grafting.

Understand the role of mandibular mesh particulate grafts, guided bone regeneration, mandibular block grafts, and ridge expansion in treating the deficient alveolar ridge.

Understand predictable bone grafting protocols for vertical ridge augmentation.

Understand the surgical protocol for sinus bone grafting in the presence of pathology.

Conclude what is evidence-based and what is opinion with regard to state-of-the-art mesh particulate grafting, guided bone regeneration, autogenous block grafting, ridge splitting, and sinus grafting.

Understand the utilization of piezosurgical approaches to different regenerative techniques including: bone harvesting, autogenous block grafting, ridge splitting, sinus grafting, and osteotomy preparation.

Prevent, recognize, and treat mesh particulate graft, guided bone regeneration, mandibular block graft, ridge split, and sinus graft complications (intraoperative, early post-operative and late post-operative).

Understand the protocol for Guided Full Arch Immediate reconstruction procedures.

Understand the implications and timing of bisphosphonate therapy with bone grafting and implant treatment.


Day 2: Soft Tissue Reconstruction

Describe the anatomy, biology, wound healing and timing of graft and host response to surgery.

Describe the anatomy, biology, wound healing and timing of soft tissue grafts, and host response to surgery.

Develop the most appropriate flap design to maximize blood supply for each procedure.

Describe the guidelines, indications, and surgical protocols for performing the following procedures: gingival grafts, subepithelial connective tissue grafts, and acellular dermis matrix allografts.

Understand the long term results and utilization of allograft ACDM vs. autogenous soft tissue material for gingival augmentation (i.e., Alloderm, Dermis, Pericardium).

Minimally Invasive Flap designs, suturing techniques, VISTA, Tunnel and Modified Semi-Lunar CAF techniques.

Be able to perform common first and second stage implant soft tissue procedures to optimize esthetics and long term maintenance.

Use appropriate suture and suturing techniques related to soft tissue and hard tissue grafting.

Understand and apply the most recent research regarding the utilization of Allogeneic Cultured Keratinocytes and Fibroblasts for Oral Soft Tissue Regeneration and their utilization in modern clinical practice.

Understand and utilize autologous blood-borne bioactive modifiers for optimal regenerative results.

Develop the skill to advance flaps through split thickness and periosteal sharp dissection.

Prevent, recognize, and treat complications related to soft tissue grafting.


Day 3: Esthetic Zone Reconstruction

Understand, describe, and utilize the appropriate surgical and prosthetic principles
involved for comprehensive site development in the esthetic zone.

Understand comprehensive extraction site management – predictable and evidence based.

Describe indications and protocols for immediate vs. delayed implant placement in the esthetic zone.
