SYNOPSIS:
Surgical procedures are an integral part of every dental practice. Dentists perform procedures such as extractions, periodontal surgery and implant placement that often require suturing skills. However, some clinicians may experience challenges such as premature suture loosing, flap opening and tearing, bent needles, and inability to stabilize flaps.Improper suturing can lead to complications and even treatment failures.

The goal of this practical course is to train dentists in predictable suturing techniques. Participants will learn about different types of suture material and needle configuration and indications for their use. Principles of correct suturing, including concepts of suture mechanics, will be reviewed to enable participants achieve stable knots and immobile flaps.

The hands-on portion of the course will include an “over the shoulder” instruction as doctors go through Dr. Simon’s unique teaching method. Participants will learn different suture and needle types and experience a systematic exercise of the most commonly used suturing techniques in dental practice.
