Socket Preservation and Simple Bone Grafting

With the wide array of bone materials and the various membranes available today, you have more choices than ever when it comes to bone grafting. This course is designed to take the mystery out of the procedure by helping you go through your options in a systematic way. Upon completing this course, you will be able to add a productive, valuable and profitable procedure to your practice with a better understanding on the latest techniques and choices. If you are a beginning implantologist, you will want to add this skill to your implant tool box so you can feel confident placing implants into sites than you wouldn’t otherwise.

Course Description

The course is designed to review the biology of bone growth and the use of membranes. In addition to this, the module systematically reviews the different types of bone grafting materials and membranes. In the process, you will learn how to use the materials and learn little tips (what Dr. Jim refers to as his “Amstatips”) that will make their use easier for you. The course also covers flap design and suturing techniques that not only help with grafting but also with placing the implant. Sign up, sit back and enjoy an easy conversation with Dr. Jim about bone grafting techniques.
