PRACTICAL ORAL SURGERY - STAGE 1
This course is designed to provide participants with additional knowledge and skills in minor oral surgery. Comprehensive patient examination, diagnosis and treatment planning will be addressed, and a range of practical exercises undertaken.
Drainage of intra-oral collections, tooth sectioning and elevation, difficult wisdom tooth removal, flap design and suturing. It is designed to instill surgical confidence in a practical atmosphere.
The course will also include discussion of complications and possible adverse outcomes. Participants will use specialised Maxillary and Mandibular Anatomical Models which reliably reflect normal anatomy and allow dissection, bone removal sectioning and flap repair and can be kept for future reference on completion of the course.
