Management of potential complications of toothextractions - 3 days

This three-day course will review techniques for routine and complicated extractions in dogs and cats. It will mainly focus on the avoidance and management of possible procedural complications (e.g., root fracture, oronasal and oroorbital communications) and the management of possible pre-existing conditions that may complicate extractions (e.g., dental ankylosis, significant loss of gingival tissues).

Content

Theoretical topics:
• Indications and contraindications for extractions
• Diagnosis of dental disease: refresher of dental and periodontal examination
• Diagnosis of dental disease: refresher of radiograhy and radiology
• Oral surgical anatomy: knowledge necessary for proper extractions
• Extraction techniques (closed technique, open technique, intentional crown amputation)
• How to manage pre-existing conditions that may complicate extractions (e.g. root ankylosis, abnormal morphology and position of teeth, unerupted teeth, severe bone loss, lack of soft tissue for surgical site closure, presence of developing tooth buds)
• How to avoid peri-surgical complications (patient’s preparation and positioning, correct use of mouth props)
• How to avoid procedurals’ complications (ergonomics, and correct management of tissue flaps and instruments/materials)
• How to manage procedurals’ complications (root fractures, OOF/OOF, dislocation of root fragments)

Practical/interactive procedures:
• Radiography techniques
• Routine and complicated extractions in dogs and cats, using open and closed techniques, including:
-Extraction of maxillary M1 in dogs and closure of extraction site with modified mucogingival flap
-Extraction of maxillary canine teeth and closure of extraction sites in case of severe gingival recession and tissue loss
-Extraction of root tips
-Access to mandibular canal and nasal cavity for retrieval of displaced root tips
• Closure of oronasal and oroorbital fistulas with mucogingival flaps
