This presentation will cover the basics of oral surgery for the general practitioner. The typical dentist’s training in oral surgery is usually quite rudimentary, but in private practice, referral to a specialist may not be an option in every case. Yet, should a problem arise, general practitioners are held to the same standard of care as the specialist. This course aims to increase the knowledge level and comfort zone of the general dentist when performing surgical procedures. Topics to be covered include evaluation of the patient’s medical history, management of the patient on anticoagulants, antibiotic prophylaxis, informed consent, presurgical planning, local anesthesia, design and use of surgical flaps, handpieces and hand instruments, atraumatic extraction instruments and techniques, surgical extractions, splitting teeth, and retrieving root tips. Many of the surgical techniques will be illustrated using video of the procedures discussed.
