Course Outline/Overview and Learning Outcomes
Extracting teeth is part of everyday clinical practice. We know that once a tooth has been removed the inevitable consequence is dimensional bone and soft tissue alterations. One option which has scientifically shown to maintain ridge volumes once teeth have been removed is Socket and Ridge Preservation. Socket and Ridge Preservation are some of the easiest methods of hard tissue preservation and augmentation in future implant sites. If the science behind extraction socket healing is applied to our daily work, patients and dentists will benefit. This hands-on course will:
• cover different techniques for hard tissue augmentation to preserve ridges
• instruct attendees on some suturing specific techniques. (pigs’ heads will be used for the hands-on component).
Our presenter for this workshop is Dr Steve Soukoulis.
Dr Soukoulis is a Periodontist based in South Australia. He graduated with a Bachelor of Dentistry from the University of Adelaide in 1996, whilst completing his postgraduate studies in Periodontology from the same University in 2001. Having held teaching positions at the University of Adelaide, Dr Soukoulis now lectures extensively both nationally and internationally.
Dr Soukoulis has recently founded the Dental Implant Registry of Australia & New Zealand, an initiative designed to facilitate improved dental implant patient outcomes. He is an active member of the Australian Osseointegration Society, Australian Society of Periodontology, Australian & New Zealand Academy of Periodontology and the American Association of Periodontology.
