  • Systematic Approach to Managing Chronic Periodontal Disease in Dogs

  • Recognition and Treatment of Traumatic Dentoalveolar Injuries
    • The classification of common traumatic dentoalveolar injuries will be described in order to aid rapid diagnosis. The current epidemiology of these injuries will be reviewed. Concepts of emergency and non-emergency treatment will be discussed.

10:00 a.m. – 10:50 a.m.

  • Flap Design for Dental Extractions and Periodontal Surgery
    • The surgical approach to most extractions and periodontal procedures begin with a gingival flap.  In this presentation we will review flap design options and provide tips to help the general practitioner choose the best approach.

10:50 a.m. – 11:40 a.m.

  • Dental Extraction Principles
    • Learn the principles required to properly extract major (and minor) teeth using tried-and-true techniques. The focus of this presentation will be on adequate bone removal/exposure, sectioning techniques, elevation principles, alveoloplasty and tension-free closure.

12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

  • Tips and Pitfalls of Challenging Extractions and Their Complications
    • We all have our problem teeth! Many textbooks and presentations only review relatively straight-forward approaches to the canine tooth but that doesn’t quite cover the really difficult ones. In this presentation we will review alternative approaches to the mandibular canine tooth, tips to avoid jaw fractures and how to deal with closure of maxillary molar sites – just to name a few. We will also look at how to deal with some of the common complications.

1:30 p.m. – 3:10 p.m.
