The Use of Bio-Oss in Various Clinical Settings:
Live Surgery and Hands-on Workshop

Peter K. Moy, DMD
West Coast Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center, Los Angeles, CA – Saturday, November 9, 2013

The advancements and improvements in grafting biomaterials and technologies have provided clinicians with a plethora of choices in both grafting techniques and donor biomaterials. Understandably, clinicians become confused as to the appropriate donor material to use for specific surgical techniques that require the use of the biomaterials. This course will delineate the various surgical techniques and most appropriate donor material or materials to use for the specific procedure. Clinical outcomes will be demonstrated with completed cases and long-term follow-up radiographs. The course will include live surgery to demonstrate surgical techniques in which Bio-Oss may be used as an appropriate donor material and a hands-on workshop session by which participants may experience the handling properties of the various grafting materials.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
• Understand the biologic principles of Bio-Oss, including the resorption rate, osteoconductive properties, and benefits of use
• Incorporate Bio-Oss into their daily practices
• Experience the handling characteristics of Bio-Oss for specific surgical procedures
