(ACDE) Improving the Clinical Success of Alveolar Ridge Preservation and …

April 13

Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR): The when, where, and how?

An ACDE Joint Provider Live Webinar Series …
Presented by

The lecture provided by two certified periodontists and clinician scientists will discuss surgical considerations and techniques, with the proper use of bone graft materials and barrier membranes, to achieve predictable alveolar ridge preservation and develop extraction sites for future implant placement. The Lecture will also focus on surgical techniques used to achieve guided bone regeneration (GBR) to augment the ridge width and height. Also included in the lecture will be an overview of various bone graft biomaterials, membranes, and suture materials and how to use them in combination for alveolar ridge preservation and guided bone regeneration therapy. The speakers will also focus on the various complications that are encountered with these procedures and techniques and how to manage them clinically.

At the conclusion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand in brief the biology behind bone remodeling and resorption.
  • Identify and classify bone defects in edentulous sites.
  • Recognize different bone graft materials and membranes and their clinical applications.
  • Understand the concept of alveolar ridge preservation and guided bone regeneration for various soft and hard tissue defects.
  • Understand the various suturing techniques that are useful in achieving primary closure for the augmented sites.
  • Recognize the complications and the management of them after alveolar ridge preservation and Guided Bone Regeneration.
