Course Description:
Implant site preservation and development is the concept of maintaining the volume and architecture of both the soft and hard tissues. It is critical to minimize tissue loss during extraction to conserve the natural ridge form and architecture for future implant placement.

Tissues should be preserved and maintained in their original forms as much as possible from the time of tooth extraction to the placement of restoration. This concept is crucial to ensure tissue healing, patient comfort, esthetics and functionality of the final implant restoration.

This course will highlight several techniques that facilitate a more esthetic, functional and predictable result in implant dentistry, starting with extraction. Discussion will focus on some of the most commonly asked questions in implant dentistry, such as should grafting be performed after tooth extraction? Which is the best graft materials to use? What type of interim provisional restorations to use in order to minimize tissue loss? What is the current research and what diagnostic tools lead to the correct decisions regarding immediate implant placement versus delayed implant placement.

This course is designed for any clinician managing extraction sites and who place implants and is the first in our series on implant site development and essential bone grafting. Special emphasis on minimally invasive extraction and grafting techniques as well as immediate implant placement.
