Have you ever struggled over a tooth that started out as a simple extraction? Have you had root tips that seemed impossible to get out?  Do you worry about those possible post-operative complications and how to manage them? Conversely, have you ever wondered if those patients you automatically refer, turn out to be simple, quick extractions? If these are your concerns, you are not alone. The ongoing changes in dentistry affect the role of the general practitioner in oral surgery cases. This course will prepare the general practitioner to better understand and manage oral surgery problems, such as: what you can do efficiently in your office, how you can manage these types of situations and what you should avoid.

  • Presurgical patient evaluation
  • Medications commonly utilized for oral surgery
