Description

This is the third of a five-part series covering the “basics” of oral surgery for the general practitioner. The typical dentist’s training in oral surgery is usually quite rudimentary, but in private practice, referral to a specialist may not be an option in every case. Yet, should a problem arise, general practitioners are held to the same standard of care as the specialist. This series aims to increase the knowledge level and comfort zone of the general dentist when performing surgical procedures. Topics to be covered on this third module include presurgical planning, local anesthesia, design and use of surgical flaps, classification of third molar impactions, sectioning techniques for impacted teeth, and management of the surgical site. Subsequent chapters will cover management of intraoperative and postoperative complications, biopsy indications and techniques, and management of odontogenic infections.

Know which patient and anatomical factors facilitate third molar removal, and which complicate the procedure. Know which local anesthetic techniques are needed for impacted third molars. Understand design of surgical flaps to improve access and visualization of the surgical site.
