Site Preservation Therapy
Skill Development Kit
Flexibility and Accessibility through Virtual and Hands-On Learning
This implant skillZ Series allows restorative clinicians to start on the road to competency with regenerative therapy. This program emphasizes extraction socket preservation. The curriculum begins with a series of three (3) self-study webcasts, followed by a skill development module with hands-on exercises for learning various socket preservation techniques.

Module 1: The Technology of Grafting Materials
Web-Based Program | Dr. Elnaz Ajami
Program Description: This program will review the chemical and physical properties of various regenerative materials to assist clinicians in selecting the best materials to meet the clinical need of the patient. A review of various grafting materials will be presented to provide a working knowledge in the selection of the most optimal bone graft material or membrane for a given defect or clinical scenario, including how processing methods may affect treatment outcomes.
Module 2: Utilizing Form and Function as a Means for Achieving Predictable Hard- and Soft-Tissue Regeneration
Web-Based Program | Dr. Rodrigo Neiva
Program Description: Oral tissue-regeneration techniques and materials have changed during the last 20 years and have significantly changed the practice of implant and reconstructive dentistry. Focus has been given to achieving dimensional gains of both hard and soft tissues resulting in substantial improvements in aesthetic outcomes. However, limited attention has been given to the quality of the regenerated tissues. The role of both hard and soft tissue scaffolds during regenerative procedures will be discussed, along with how they can potentially impact tissue quality and improve outcomes.
Module 3: Implant Site Development with Single-Tooth Extractions: Anterior vs. Posterior
Web-Based Program | Dr. Suheil Boutros
Program Description: Alveolar bone preservation following tooth extraction has become the gold standard in dental implants. The ideal timing for socket preservation is at the time of tooth extraction, yet very often this opportunity is missed resulting in an aesthetic deformity of the hard and soft tissues. Extraction socket classification will be highlighted, and the decision tree for immediate versus delayed implant placement will be discussed. This presentation will review the importance of atraumatic tooth extraction and the rationale for using different biologics. A novel, simple and predictable method of ridge preservation following tooth extraction using the socket repair membrane will be demonstrated in a step-by-step fashion.
Module 4: Hands-On Step-by-Step Instructional Video
Web-Based Program | Dr. Suheil Boutros
Program Description: The ideal timing for socket preservation is at the time of tooth extraction, yet very often this opportunity is missed resulting in an aesthetic deformity of the hard and soft tissues. In this program, participants will be guided through socket preservation techniques for different types of defects. The importance of atraumatic tooth extraction and the rationale, for which biologics may best fit the clinical situation, will be reviewed. Three simple and predictable methods of ridge preservation following tooth extraction using graft particulate with different membranes will be demonstrated in a step-by-step fashion. Suture techniques to stabilize the graft/membrance, as well as to obtain primary closure of the extraction sites, will be demonstrated.
