31 Credit Hours
Learn Essential, Applicable Techniques for Predictable Bone Augmentation!

GBR | Block Grafting | Ridge Expansion | Titanium Mesh | Use of Ti PTFE Membrane | Graft Site Evaluation | Use of rhBMP-2 / Bioactive Modifiers | Sequential 3D Digital Diagnostic Protocol | Complication Management

Understand how to create routine success at even advanced horizontal and vertical bone augmentation. Learn the “why” behind many procedural steps that promote the best outcomes, minimize complications and anticipate integration with the patient’s entire treatment plan. With the vital and practical instruction in this course, you can dramatically expand the limits of your patient acceptance and professional growth with confident proficiency in several modes of implant site development and implant reconstruction.

This course will include a hands-on hard tissue grafting workshop and LIVE surgical demonstration cases.
