This course comprises a half-day lecture in the morning and a half-day hands-on workshop with pig jaw models in the afternoon. The lecture session will cover defect classification, flap design, site preparation, application of appropriate graft materials, membrane selection, membrane fixation, and suturing techniques. The design of provisional restorations for the areas treated will be included. The discussion will also cover defect management with and without immediate implant placement and will include intact sockets within and outside the esthetic zone, dehisence and fenestration defects, and the management of narrow ridges (ie, horizontal augmentation). The hands-on session will give participants the opportunity to apply the principles covered in the lecture. Ample time will be provided for questions and discussion. Participants may bring documented cases for discussion as time permits.
