Advanced Topics in Dentoalveolar Surgery 2021

The provision of dentoalveolar surgical procedures is the most common part of most oral and maxillofacial surgeons' practice. This session will focus on adjunctive procedures that can provide patients with improved outcomes and focus on aspects that can reduce complications. It also will include step-by-step clinical images and information so the OMS can integrate these procedures into practice. Topics to be reviewed include second molar uprighting procedures, marsupialization of large radiolucent lesions, coronectomy procedures (including indications, surgical procedure and long-term outcomes) as well as apical surgery (including current techniques and an algorithm for when to treat/when to extract).

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the indications and surgical techniques of coronectomy procedures. 
  2. Demonstrate performing surgical uprighting of impacted second molars. 
  3. Manage large radiolucent jaw lesions.
