This second stage course builds on the introductory Practical Oral Surgery course, and is intended to assist practitioners with expanding their knowledge and skills in relation to a range of dento-alveolar surgical procedures. The course is designed to further improve surgical confidence in a practical atmosphere. Participants will use specialised replica anatomical models which reliably reflect normal anatomy and allow dissection, bone removal, sectioning and flap repair. A number of complex third molar simulation models will be provided to simulate the range of presenting impacted molar cases.
This second stage course will include a combination of theory and practical exercises including;
- Complex third molar extractions
- Advanced anaesthetic techniques for complex cases including intra osseous injection techniques
- Advanced suturing skills, when and where to use
- Oro-antral communications and their management
- Advanced management of patients on contemporary anticoagulants
- Advanced interpretation of the position of the inferior alveolar nerve in relation to third molars on cone beam images.
