Face-to-Face Training | CAPP Training Institute Dubai (full day)


Flap management plays a major role when performing oral surgery procedures. Choosing the proper surgical instruments is crucial in order to enable the practitioner to successfully cut, reflect and manipulate soft tissues. Proper flap design will give a complete view of the area involved in the surgery, and respecting anatomical structures and vascular supply will ensure proper and uneventful healing.

Following surgery flap repositioning and suturing is very crucial. Choosing the proper suture material and suturing technique will allow the surgeon to achieve a perfect closure of the wound thus reducing soft tissue healing complications. 

Following tooth extraction, it is important to preserve the socket bony wall thus insuring proper bone healing and minimal post-operative remodelling and resorption. Ultrasonic technology was recently adapted to the extraction technique since it has a very precise and efficient cutting action. Through this technology tooth separation and periotomy can be precisely performed, thus facilitating extraction technique with minimal bone resorption.

During this hands-on training workshop, an overview of different flap designs and suturing techniques will be presented in order to guide the practitioner when performing basic and advanced oral surgery procedures. Atraumatic extraction technique will be presented along with the advantages related to the use of new piezosurgery technology and its impact on the final extraction outcome.
