Course Description

In this didactic, hands-on, and live surgery course,  Dr. Fien, Dr. Puterman, and Dr. Leavitt will review all the details required to successfully perform advanced socket grafting and ridge augmentation in clinical practice. This session will review in detail appropriate incision designs for guided bone regeneration, flap management, minimally invasive techniques to harvest autogenous bone, material selection, handling of biomaterials, and techniques to maintain space. A special focus on stabilization of the graft/membrane complex with periosteal biting stabilization sutures and simplified techniques to achieve tension-free primary closure will also be reviewed in detail.


In this course, you will learn practical techniques to perform Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) using resorbable materials. This technique is indicated for the treatment of varying degrees of alveolar ridge deficiency, especially in the horizontal dimension, as well as for GBR immediately following tooth extraction when a buccal deficiency is present. This technique can be utilized to perform Guided Bone Regeneration prior to implant placement or simultaneously with implant placement.

  • Learn how to prepare the recipient site for bone augmentation
  • Learn minimally invasive techniques to harvest autogenous bone
  • Learn various techniques to stabilize the graft/membrane complex 
  • Learn soft tissue management protocols to achieve tension free primary closure
