"Maximizing Your Esthetics"
DR. LOU GRAHAM
Diagnostics and treatment planning involve far more than just preparation guides and wax-up models when extractions are involved. Extractions routinely require socket grafting procedures along with concurrent temporization techniques to develop optimum long-term results. This course will demonstrate a very easy to follow methodology for general practitioners on socket grafting along with multiple material options as they relate to what, where and why. The second step at the time of grafting is temporization and again various techniques will be presented on how to develop natural cols and papillae that set the stage for implant surgery and or crown and bridge procedures.
- Step by step approaches on mixing and placing various graft materials.
- Why timing is everything.
- What materials, where, when and why...it’s not just one type!
- Collagen Barriers and ease of placement.
- Suturing Techniques.
- Temporization techniques with pre-made temporizes or chair-side temporaries for your long term perio-prosthetic-implant casework.
- Creating the “ovate” look.
- Hands-on: Socket grafting and Temporization with a three unit temporary bridge (optional)
