It is a prerequisite that at least one of the Oral Surgery - Module 2 or Oral Surgery - Module 3 courses have been completed OR demonstrated clinical experience before enrolling to the Oral Surgery - Cadaver Course - Stage 4.
Advanced lectures and video demonstrations are given prior to each day’s laboratory sessions. This is a two day very detailed course with a large curriculum in practical oral surgery for the general dental practitioner. It is a great opportunity to improve your Oral Surgery skills.
The specimens are fresh cadavers. This will allow the knowledge and techniques leant on the anatomical models to be directly transferred to the clinical situation.
These include buccal guttering, division and elevation of the erupted dentition, flap design and closure, the acute management of the oro-antral communication, tissue preservation techniques, suturing, and elevation techniques using a wide variety of surgical instrumentation.
Detailed examination of the specimens will allow identification of the maxillary antrum and its relationship to the dentition, the course and position of the Inferior alveolar nerve and mental nerve foramen, the maxillary nerve and its branches and the lingual nerve.
Various local anaesthetic block techniques will be demonstrated and taught on the specimens.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate the safe and effective use of Luxators and Periotomes
- Discuss anatomical structures at risk during Exodontia and Minor Oral Surgery procedures
- Demonstrate an emerging understanding of access flap design and safe and effective tissue handling in raising a surgical access flap to protect adjacent anatomical structures whilst removing teeth
- Demonstrate safe and effective techniques removing bone and sectioning roots to assist in removal of single and multi-rooted teeth.
- Discuss safe and effective techniques to stabilise and assess an Oral-Antral Communication and the need to preserve tissue to allow formal repair if needed
- Discuss safe and effective adjunctive techniques to achieve adequate local anaesthesia for Exodontia and Minor Oral Surgery
- Demonstrate the relationship of the dentition to the maxillary antrum and to describe techniques for the management of the acute perforation
