This half-day workshop will start with a 60-minute lecture looking at traditional methods of surgical extraction and comparing this to a new minimally invasive technique, using an automated periotome. The lecture will also discuss the importance of pre and post-extraction intraoral radiographs, and the management of extraction complications.

Following the lecture, in the 'hands-on' component of the workshop, attendees will master correct methods of raising a soft tissue flap and perform surgical extractions of the canine and carnassial teeth on one side of the mouth and then contrast and compare this with the use of a new minimally invasive automated periotome used for the same teeth on the other side of the mouth.  Throughout the workshop, attendees will be well supported and receive expert guidance from a team of highly qualified educators.
