Program Summary This course offers a didactic and hands-on review of the management of third molar and complex dento-alveolar surgery. Participants will gain proficient knowledge in the pre-operative evaluation of complex dental extractions and the most effective methods of surgical and non- surgical management. One of the main goals of the course is to allow participants to predict high-risk scenarios when planning the removal of third molars and how to best avoid complications. A systematic approach to managing common complications related to dento-alveolar surgery (nerve injuries, oro-antral communications, bleeding, infection) as well as less common sequelae will be presented. In the hands-on portion of the course, the participants will develop their surgical techniques for an efficient and safe approach to dental extractions. Flap design for specific anatomical sites, instrumentation and extraction techniques will be reviewed. Techniques for control of bleeding and management of surgical complications will be discussed as well as suturing methods for specific anatomical indications. Finally, the post-operative management of patients will be discussed and recommendations made with regards to pharmacological protocols of analgesia and infection prevention. This course is geared towards dentists that wish to strengthen their surgical skills and treatment planning abilities when it comes to complex dento-alveolar surgery.
