Creating the best flap; a tension releasing process
Flaps are used for various procedures from extraction to crown lengthening to bone augmentation, to closing palatal defects or oronasal fistulae. For each procedure, flap variations exist. Some modifications are dictated by individual parameters others are the result of the operator's preference. This presentation will review and compare which flaps are best when extracting specific teeth, from the envelope flap used for most premolars to the more complicated single or double vertical release flaps used for canines 01· maxillary molars.
Extraction techniques using luxators
There is more than one way to extract a tooth. This presentation will concentrate on how to use luxators with minimal bone removal. It will review the equipment required to use this technique. It will dwell into the physics involved in breaking the fibers of the periodontal ligament; the only tissue that should be damaged during an extraction.
Surgical and difficult extractions
In this lecture we will cover techniques necessary when dealing with complications associated with extractions such as supernumerary roots, unerupted teeth, ankylosis, root l'idges, retained roots, fractured roots, root dilaceration. All of the above are fairly easy to correct once one knows how. The exception being ankylosis that is truly a difficult condition to deal with.
