Course Description

What’s equally (if not more) important than implant placement? It’s preserving and augmenting the soft and hard tissue you have already! Don’t let the tissue be the issue; prevent the collapse of the tissue and bone for the best esthetic outcome with Guided Bone Regeneration. GBR is a surgical procedure used in bony defects of the jaw where a membrane and mixed bone are used to help with the formation of new bone. This course provides knowledge on performing techniques such as atraumatic extractions, socket preservation, socket shielding, and augmentation.
