Course Description

 Course Description
The ability to design, raise, and close the flap is a key sequence of steps called upon in a variety of surgical procedures. Regrettably, dentists often utilize erroneous approaches, incorrect techniques and inappropriate armamentarium in the execution of these steps.  This presentation will focus on defining treatment objectives and then seeking flap design and closure techniques that best meet these objectives.  Common topics such as clinical errors and armamentarum will also be reviewed. Clinical examples will focus on management of the aesthetic zone including site augmentation procedures.

2)  Objective-driven flap design principles
3)  Full-thickness and split-thickness flaps
4)  Placement of horizontal and vertical incisions
5)  Tension-free flap closure
6)  Suturing armamentarium, including suture/needle types and sizes
