This presentation that was recorded at Townie Meeting will cover important oral surgery topics for the general dentist . 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 classification of third-molar impactions, surgical techniques for impacted teeth and management of the surgical site, suturing indications and techniques, ridge preservation indications and techniques, and management of complications. Many of the surgical techniques will be illustrated using video of the procedures discussed.
