Oral Surgery for the GP

July 30, 2020
12:00 am – 12:00 am
  • Karl Koerner, D.D.S., M.S.

This course covers “must have” instruments for surgery and modern techniques for “surgical” extractions that enable finishing within your scheduled time (and how to decrease that time). It includes overcoming pitfalls of sectioning teeth, extracting difficult canines, and how to remove stubborn root tips. Dr. Koerner also discusses when flaps are needed (along with how to be more comfortable with them) and how to make your sutures better.

Learning Objectives:
1) Perform surgical extractions more quickly.
2) Place sutures with more proficiency.
3) Remove broken root tips more easily and confidently.

Course Number: T19

Recommended for

  • Dental Assistants
