Course Topics and Objectives: 

Course Description: 

Many extractions look easy but can soon become difficult, time consuming, and lead to complications. This course reviews the best techniques and instruments to remove "surgical" extractions easily and quickly while conserving bone - a requirement with the need for implants and more aesthetic bridges. Dr. Karl Koerner’s courses make exodontia more enjoyable and predictable so it can be performed with greater confidence and less stress. Dr. Koerner also covers other topics related to the above, such as avoiding problems with the maxillary sinus, bleeding prevention/management, and ridge preparation for dentures. 

Course Objectives: 

1. More easily do "surgical" or difficult extractions that are frequently encountered in general practice. 

2. Prevent and/or manage complications that can occur during or after oral surgery such as sinus problems, bleeding, swelling, pain, etc. 

3. More easily recognize problem cases that may need referral.
