  • Increase your knowledge and skill in the areas of flap design, implant placement, bone grafting, and suturing techniques.
  • Use the latest technology (PiezoSurgery machines and CO2 laser are available for use by attendees)
  • Completion of any of these three programs fulfills the Fellowship requirements for the ICOI

Advanced Bone Grafting Procedures Course Curriculum

Each doctor will perform 4-5 surgeries and assist his or her partner with his or her four surgeries. So each doctor is exposed to 8-10 advanced implant/bone grafting surgical procedures.

The surgeries will be selected from the following procedures:
  • Sinus lifting through the lateral window
  • Sinus lifting through the osteotomy site
  • Maxillary Alveolar ridge expansion using split-cortical technique
  • Mandibular Alveolar ridge expansion using Pedicled Sandwich Plasty (PSP)
  • Connective tissue graft
  • Block graft
  • And just like implant placement, bone grafting participants will work on their flapping techniques, suturing techniques and will perform multiple alveoloplasty procedures.
  • Lecture material and surgical DVDs are provided for bone grafting program participants before the program to enhance the learning experience
