Alveolar Ridge Augmentation with SonicWeld Rx Course

This one-day advanced alveolar ridge augmentation course is designed for clinicians who wish to add proficiency in performing a highly predictable advanced alveolar ridge augmentation technique to their dental implant surgical repertoire. The focus of this workshop will be highly predictable alveolar ridge augmentation strategies with rigid resorbable membranes to create a healthy bone foundation for the placement of dental implants. We will focus on predictable soft tissue flap management techniques, selection of bone grafting and biological materials, rigid membrane fixation with the SonicWeld Rx system, predictable flap release techniques, and suturing techniques and materials. This course will also address the management of complications with advanced alveolar ridge augmentation procedures.
