Advanced Topics in Dentoalveolar Surgery

The provision of dentoalveolar surgical procedures is an important part of the OMS practice. Incorporating surgical second molar uprighting, coronectomies and marsupialization of large cystic lesions into the practice will aid in management of some of these less common cases. The program will include presentation of the indications, well-documented surgical procedures and potential complications of these cases.
