Pockets And Sockets: Predictable Management Of Periodontal Defects And Extraction Sockets  

Friday October 21, 2022 – 8:30am – 12:00pm


The ability to regenerate hard and soft tissues is a fundamental aspect of modern periodontal and implant therapy. Advances in regenerative techniques and biomaterials in recent years now allow for predictable regeneration of periodontal defects and stable dimensional gains in extraction sockets and edentulous ridges. This lecture will highlight the properties of various bone grafting and barrier membranes in the context of selecting the ideal regenerative material for various clinical scenarios. The lecture will also focus on key surgical and post surgical factors that increase the success rate of regenerative and augmentation procedures.  

Learning Objectives:  

  • Review the properties of regenerative materials including bone autografts, allografts, and xenografts, resorbable and non-resorbable barrier membranes, and biologic regenerative materials (such as Enamel Matrix Derivative and PRF)  
  • Discuss advantages and disadvantages of various regenerative materials and techniques  
  • Review principles of guided tissue regeneration of periodontal defects  
  • Review principles of socket preservation and augmentation
  • Highlight the keys to success in regenerative and augmentation procedures
