Dr. Jerry Lin will lead a virtual Continuing Professional Education course on vertical ridge augmentation techniques.
It has been a challenge for dental surgeons to predictably manage the severely atrophic alveolar ridge for future implant therapy. This presentation (webinar lecture format) will begin with the biological considerations for guided bone regeneration leading to the decision-making process for utilizing proper techniques in various clinical situations. Factors related to the predictability as well as the treatment guidelines will be presented. Time-tested surgical interventions and techniques used to optimize the treatment outcomes will be introduced. This course will include clinical cases in which vertical ridge augmentations were accomplished based on the guidelines that are presented.
- To understand a solid biologic basis and to provide clinical guidelines by which predictable vertical ridge augmentation outcomes can be achieved.
- To discuss step-by-step surgical procedures in achieving vertical ridge augmentation.
- To discuss potential vertical ridge augmentation complications.
