Partial Extraction Therapy (PET)

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

    Course Description (one-day hands-on course):

    The loss of teeth will lead to resorption of the buccal plate with its resultant need for extensive augmentative procedures (both bone and soft tissue) as well as the risk of poor long term aesthetic stability.

    Learning Objectives:

    · Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) Techniques

    · Discuss how to maintain the buccal bone plate and hence prevent the collapse of the alveolar bone creating a platform for ideal soft tissue

    · Hands-on practical training utilizing simulation models

    · This lecture and hands-on will take you through the different options with regards to immediate implant placement as well as the most cutting-edge PET in a step by step fashion
