Course description

Practical Oral Surgery for the General Dentist

Monday, Nov. 12, 2018
Presented by Dr. O. Ross Beirne, DMD, PhD

This course is designed for general dentists who want to expand their oral surgery understanding and skills in the management of dento-alveolar surgery. Along with surgical extractions, this course will cover socket preservation and avoiding and managing common surgical complications such as sinus communication, root fractures, excessive bleeding, and tuberosity fractures. Emphasis will focus on the surgical removal of teeth with minimal bone removal as well as when and how to preserve extraction sockets for future insertion of implants. Bone augmentation at local sites with inadequate bone for implants will be described.

The science and art of using oral sedatives for safe in-office minimal/moderate sedation of the anxious patient will be described as well as the equipment required to monitor minimally/moderately sedated patients. Optimal post-surgical pain management will be discussed.

The assessment and management of patients with significant cardiac disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and diabetes will be highlighted. The management of patients taking anticoagulants and antiplatelet medications will also be reviewed. 

This course will conclude with recognition and management of common medical emergencies.
