Guided Bone Regeneration Surgical Modalities

    CE Credits Hours: Total 7 Hours (3 hrs Lecture – 4 hrs Participation)

    Course Description (one-day hands-on course)

    Abstract Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. 

    Learning Objectives:

    · Evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques

    · Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes

    · The use of non-resorbable, titanium membranes, as well as Khoury plates technique can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization

    · Hands-on practical training utilizing simulation models
