Event description

Description

Lecture Overview:
Ridge preservation is the process by which bone and/or graft material is added to a patient’s maxillary or mandibular jaw bone in an effort to offset the natural process of bone loss or resorbtion, secondary to a an edentulous space. Of all the procedures dentists can offer, none may be as significant. Yet despite its prophylactic value, it is a treatment modality that is often overlooked. Yet the longer edentulous patients go without preserving the bone around a missing tooth, the greater the likelihood of bone loss. Insufficient bone risks implant failure and will necessitate more extensive bone grafting later in the process.
Today’s lecture will identify and describe ridge preservation techniques and also how to explain to patients the need to have this procedure done shortly following tooth extraction in order to ensure optimal outcomes.

Key Objectives:
· Fundamental biology and mechanics of ridge preservations
· Review proper equipment necessary for treatment
· Suturing and membrane options
