This course features evidence-based scientific presentations, clinical case-based learning, video surgery footage, hands-on surgical skills exercises, and treatment-planning sessions. Participants will gain the knowledge required to implement extraction site management, ridge preservation, and lateral ridge augmentation protocols into their implant practices.
Individual case factors such as tooth removal technique, root position, socket wall thickness, selection and handling of graft material, repair of socket wall defects, and timing of implant placement will be discussed in terms of how they impact functional and esthetic ridge preservation outcomes. Modifications aimed at achieving either maximum osseous regeneration within the socket or limiting
the negative dimensional ridge modeling that follows tooth removal will be compared and contrasted. Hands-on surgical skills exercises will allow participants to practice minimally traumatic tooth extractions, ridge preservation procedures on intact and defect sockets, and lateral ridge augmentation procedures in a high-tech simulation lab.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Describe the unique biology of the alveolar ridge and the rationale for ridge preservation
• Understand the biology and surgical principles of intraoral bone grafting
• Perform minimally traumatic tooth extraction and the Bio-Col ridge preservation protocol at intact and defect sockets
• Perform soft tissue incision techniques, flap designs, and recipient site preparation of deficient alveolar ridges for particulate bone grafting with guided bone regeneration around implants with exposed threads
• Understand the design criteria for provisional restorations used with ridge preservation to optimize functional and esthetic results

Anthony G. Sclar is considered a leader around the world in reconstructive and esthetic dental implant surgery. A Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dr Sclar performs 15 to 20 advanced and complex implant surgery procedures each week, including hard and soft tissue site development, tissue engineering, periodontal plastic surgery, and immediate implant function procedures. In addition to publishing numerous clinical articles and textbook chapters pertaining to implant dentistry, Dr Sclar co-edited (with Dr Michael Block) a surgical atlas entitled Soft Tissue Esthetic Procedures for Teeth and Implants (Saunders, 1999) and authored a multilanguage textbook entitled Soft Tissue and Esthetic Considerations in Implant Therapy (Quintessence, 2003). A popular educator and lecturer, Dr Sclar has lectured for dental professionals both nationally and internationally.
Juan D. Cardenas is a highly talented and experienced prosthodontist who provides specialized prosthodontic care as well as comprehensive general and cosmetic therapy to his patients in
Miami, Florida. Dr Cardenas received his general dentistry degree from Fundación Universitaria San Martin, Bogota, Colombia, in 1986. After a few years in private practice, Dr Cardenas was accepted into Boston University, where he received a certificate for Advanced Graduate Studies in Prosthodontics in 1993. In 2002, he established a state-of-the-art practice in Miami with a primary focus on oral rehabilitation and implant dentistry. Dr Cardenas has lectured nationally and internationally on implant therapy and advanced cosmetic dentistry.
