Surgical Complications: How to Manage and Avoid

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

This course covers common complications and how to avoid or manage them, such as sinus issues, avoiding excessive force (including tuberosity fractures), handling bleeding, and how to quickly take care of teeth that won’t go numb. We will discuss how multiple extractions differ from one at a time and may require a bigger flap; granulomatous tissue removal; alveoplasty; exostoses removal; frenectomy; continuous-lock sutures; controlled canine eminence reduction among other topics. We will also discuss which flaps and instruments are best for removing bone.

Learning Objectives:
1) Avoid or manage extraction complications with more confidence and skill.
2) Know differences that are important in removing one vs. multiple teeth.
3) Perform a frenectomy according to current standards of care.

Course Number: T20
