What You'll Learn in Atraumatic Extractions and Socket Grafting

In today’s world, we as dentists are having to invest more in our practices to keep our patients and teams safe.

At the same time, we are experiencing a reduction in revenue due to restrictions and uncertainty. It makes more sense than ever to introduce new services to our patients and new streams of revenue to our practices.

In the past, mastering a new skill set involved taking time off work, traveling, hotels, and learning at a set pace.

That is no longer the case! Over the past few months, we’ve seen a surge in online dental education -- but none of it gives you the practical knowledge and hands-on training you need to actually apply these procedures in your practice.

That’s where we come in! Digital Dentistry Institute has been providing world-class dental education all around the world for years.
We have now taken our courses and modified them to provide you with procedure focused, practical, hands-on training, all of which can be done from the comfort of your home or clinic.

Our goal is to give you everything you need to master placing and restoring dental implants.
We’ll provide you with the skill sets you need, in a sequence of practical programs.

Each program focuses on one particular procedure that you can apply the next day in your clinic - starting with atraumatic extractions and socket grafting.

We help dentists treat more patients better, by mastering new procedures and skills.

Atraumatic Extractions and Socket Grafting

  • Attract more new patients and retain your existing patients by introducing new procedures to your practice.

  • A practical first step to placing implants -- with something you can begin implementing the next day.

  • Learn from a leading expert and educator in implant dentistry.

  • Gain new skills with step-by-step hands-on training that you can do from home or your clinic.

  • Learn at your own pace, without having to take time off work or travel.

  • Join our community where you will find ongoing mentorship, guidance, and support.

Once you complete this program,
you’ll feel comfortable choosing the right cases, and removing teeth while preparing the site for a future implant.

You can immediately implement these procedures the day after you complete this program, setting things up for when you complete further training to then place and restore implants.

This will be a unique educational experience, and your first step to transforming your dental practice.

Atraumatic Extractions and Socket Grafting


Atraumatic Extractions

In this section of the program, we will review different extraction systems that can assist to atraumatically extract a tooth. You will learn tips and tricks that will allow you to predictably remove any tooth. We will discuss the techniques and guidelines for tooth sectioning, and bone removal during atraumatic extraction procedures. 

Fundamentals of Bone Grafts 

This section will cover the principles every clinician needs to understand to successfully perform any bone grafting procedure. We will cover topics like bone physiology, blood supply, inflammation, and much more. 

Socket Grafting

This section will give you the knowledge, and practical training you need to apply these procedures in your practice.

After removing the tooth, how do you classify the socket? Based on that, what are the different techniques to graft that socket predictably? We will cover socket suturing techniques, membranes, bone grafting materials, medications, and pre & post-op instructions.

This program includes three hands-on exercises that allow you to practice socket grafting type 1 and type 2 sockets, using different techniques like a single membrane, double membrane, and the ice cream cone technique. We will also introduce you to scenarios where soft tissue and biologics can be utilized during the socket grafting procedure. 

Socket Grafting with Other Disease Processes 

We will walk you through different case examples of how socket grafting was completed in the presence of other infections or pathologies such as periapical pathology or lateral periodontal abscess.
