Dentistry: complication of extraction


This small group session is for clinicians who wish to develop their theoretical knowledge of the common complications of extraction. The format will be more informal than classic lectures and be partly lead by the delegates. Small group, case based clinical problems will also be used. The presentations will include an in-depth review of extraction technique, including the creation of muco-periosteal flaps, tooth removal technique, bone management and soft tissue closure. The review will consider how to prevent complications and what action can or should be taken if complications are encountered.

Key learning objectives:

1. Appreciate what the most common complications of extraction are and why they occur.

2. Learn to design, elevate and close surgical flaps appropriately.

3. Techniques to extract challenging root fragments.
