If you are going to do surgery, you need to understand what you are doing. This means knowing not just "how to do it", but also the biology, anatomy and potential complications. This is what separates the clinician from a technician. If you are a technician, you should not be doing surgery. This case illustrates a common complication of maxillary third molar surgery. Even in the most well-trained and experienced hands, it can still occur, but it is easily managed without any sequelae. Run time 18:31.

This video shows the use of the Piezotome CUBE to facilitate removal of an ankylosed tooth root in the mandible. Atraumatic extraction of even the most difficult tooth can be performed if the right instruments are used. Traditionally, a surgical handpiece and bur would be used to separate an ankylosed root from the alveolar bone. But new technology allows the use of ultrasonic instruments to sever the periodontal ligament and widen the space between the root and bone without the risk of overheating or removing excess bone. The use of the Piezotome CUBE and Proximators is demonstrated by Dr. Reznick in this course. Duration 09:48.

One of the biggest mistakes a clinician can make is to "think" that they can successfully perform a surgical procedure. It is essential to KNOW that you can do it before you pick up the first instrument. This video discusses a case where the doctor had no plan, did not know how to handle a broken root tip, and after an hour of struggling, finally sent the patient to Dr. Reznick to complete the surgery. The basic principles of how to handle a broken root on a mandibular molar are discussed. Run Time - 14:06.

CBCT Guided is an incredible tool that improves the accuracy and efficiency of dental implant placement. But, tools sometimes fail, and when they do, the clinician needs to know what to do to either fix the tool or choose a different one. In this case presentation, it was discovered that the patient's mandibular opening was inadequate to use fully-guided technology to place a dental implant at the mandibular second molar position. Dr. Reznick discusses the strategies to overcome this problem and still ensure accurate implant placement. Run time 20:37

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

Dr. Howard Farran started the website DentalTown so that "no dentist will have to practice alone". Over 200,00 dentists from all over the world log in to DentalTown to share cases, get advice, and to vent, about various clinical, practice management, and personal topics. In 2014, they launched a video podcast series that now has over 400 episodes. I was privileged to be one of the first contributors. In it, Howard and I discuss why I now do 99.99% of the implants in my practice using surgical guides planned from CBCT. If you are not already a "Townie", check out the site at DentalTown.Com.

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
