It is not uncommon to need to remove multiple adjacent teeth in a patient. Traditional surgical technique emphasizes trimming of the marginal gingiva, including the interdental papillae in order to facilitate primary closure of tissue over the surgical site. This technique has been around long before tooth replacement with dental implants was the standard of care. Unfortunately, this removes a significant amount of ketatinized gingiva, which is undesirable if implants are planned. Keratinized gingiva is also beneficial for supporting a removable prosthesis. This video shows a technique which preserves most all of the keratinized tissue following multiple tooth extractions and alveloloplasty. Run time- 14:35

Digital technology has changed the way we practice dentistry... for the better. The integration of CAD/CAM and CBCT has improved our diagnostic ability to treatment plan toward a more predictable and successful clinical outcome. In this case presentation, Dr. Reznick discusses a patient who was referred after a motor vehicle accident and suffered an avulsed tooth and subluxation of others. The completely digital work flow and treatment sequence are described. Run time- 24:09

This video presents a case of a fairly common pathological entity, a benign exostosis. A differential diagnosis is discussed and 3D CBCT imaging is used to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment is very straightforward and a favorite of many oral surgeons. Run time- 10:05

A supernumary tooth in the midline of the maxilla is referred to as a mesiodens. These are fairly common, and easily removed with proper planning and surgical technique. This video shows how this is accomplished in an 11 year old patient. Run Time- 6:58
- 13:50 Published: 07/03/2016
This video describes the evaluation and management of an area of mucosal breakdown with bone exposure of the mandible after dental extractions. The surgical treatment included use of a regenerative product derived from amniotic membrane that was used to enhance healing and repair the tissue and bone deficiency. Duration- 13:50
- 8:57 Published: 04/25/2016
The roots of maxillary posterior teeth are frequently close to the maxillary sinus floor. Small perforations into the sinus can occur with extractions, especially when periapical pathology is present. Managing this properly will minimize the risk of a chronic oral-antral fistula developing. This video discusses such a case and how to manage a small perforation. Duration- 8:57.

Bisphosphonate-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaws (BRONJ) is a recently recognized complication of a class of drugs that is used to treat osteoporosis and bone disease in a variety of cancers. Millions of patients have been exposed to these drugs. There is a lot of incomplete information and misinformation around regarding dental management of these patients. This course attempts to make some sense of it all. Run Time- 34:21
- 9:05 Published: 04/25/2016
Odontogenic infections are commonly seen in dental practice. When the infection spreads in to the soft tissue and forms an abscess, surgical drainage is frequently indicated as part of the management. This video demonstrates how to do an intraoral I & D procedure. Duration- 9:06
- 10:51 Published: 04/25/2016
Patients may present anytime after surgery with a late complication. This video shows management of a late infection in a 3rd molar site due to a bony sequestrum. Duration- 10:51
- 25:44 Published: 04/25/2016
This course reviews some basic principles regarding the management of infections of dental origin. Topics include I & D technique, culture/sensitivity testing, and antibiotic use. Duration 25:43
- 9:53 Published: 04/25/2016
Mandibular fractures are occasionally first diagnosed by a general dentist, especially in situations where an oral surgeon is not readily available. Stabilizing the fracture can reduce the risk of complications and make the patient more comfortable. A simple technique to stabilize a mandibulr fracture is demonstrated. Duration - 9:52
- 12:36 Published: 04/25/2016
A mucocele (mucous retention cyst) is a common pathological lesion found on the lips and in the oral cavity of patients of all ages. This video discusses the evaluation, differential diagnosis, and surgical treatment of this lesion. Duration- 12:36
- 15:15 Published: 04/25/2016
Jaw pathology may be seen on routine radiographs. Many small benign intrabony lesions can be managed by the general dentist with surgical training, as long as the case is diagnosed and treated to the same standard of care as the oral surgeon would. Differential diagnosis of a radioopaque mass in a 12 year old girl is discussed and the technique of surgical removal is demonstrated in this video. Duration- 15:15.
- 11:22 Published: 04/25/2016
Obstruction of the submandibular duct by a stone is a common condition seen in a surgical practice. Supportive management is discussed, followed by the surgical technique to remove a stubborn stone from Wharton's duct. Run Time- 11:22.
- 16:33 Published: 04/25/2016
Subcutaneous air emphysema is a rare but dramatic complication in dentistry. It is due to air being driven into the perioral soft tissues during a dental procedure. This video discusses the etiology and treatment of this complication. It can be prevented by the use of a rear-venting handpiece for surgical procedures. Duration - 16:32
- 36:03 Published: 04/25/2016
This course covers the basics of managing the common intraoperative and postoperative complications that can occur with any oral surgical procedure. Duration- 36:02
- 6:20 Published: 04/25/2016
This video shows the technique for removing a small buccal exostosis from the lateral maxilla using an osteotome. Duration 6:20.
- 2:18 Published: 04/25/2016

Oral surgery is more than just taking out teeth and placing implants. It also includes the evaluation and management of pathological lesions of the mucosa and within the bones of the face and jaws. Some of these are quite common and seen frequently in practice. Others are more rare. The process to evaluate and manage such lesions is an important skill to master, not only for specialists, but also for the general practitioner who practices in an area where there is not a specialist close by. This video explores the case of a patient presenting with pain in the mandible, the diagnostic evaluation, and treatment of the pathologic entity. Run time - 16:41
- 16:13 Published: 03/15/2016
The clinician will regularly encounter patients with intraoral pathology. Some lesions are best managed by immediate consultation with a specialist. However, most are benign and easily managed in the office under local anesthesia. This video presents a fairly common case of a small mass on the lower lip. Differential diagnosis, principles of biopsy, and excisional biopsy technique are discussed. Run Time - 16:13
- 25:14 Published: 01/10/2015
This video course discusses a case in which a root tip, after being pushed into the maxillary sinus during extraction, becomes infected and needs to be removed. Dr. Reznick describes the technique to retrieve the root and then reconstruct the oral-antral communication and bony defect that resulted from this therapeutic misadventure. The Caldwell-Luc antrostomy is demonstrated, as well as a direct sinus lift and ridge augmentation. Duration- 25:14.
- 17:05 Published: 09/14/2013
An infected maxillary molar can encroach upon the maxillary sinus and create an oral-antral fistula when extracted. Large defects will not close on their own. When this complication is anticipated, surgery is planned to close the defect primarily. This video demonstrates a technique to do just that. Run time- 17:05
- 13:17 Published: 09/14/2013
This case demonstrates the technique for surgical removal of a broken lower first molar, and discusses the fine points of the procedure. The technique of ridge preservation grafting is also shown. Running time: 13:17
