  • Recognize the 12 different “Keys to Bone Grafting” required for predictable success.
  • Understand soft tissue principles of bone grafting: including flap design, flap extension, soft tissue closure and suturing.
  • Perform site development procedures related to hard tissue healing.
  • Apply biologic factors such as growth factors to the bone graft process.
  • Appreciate the need for a “layered” approach for growth factors involved in large volume bone grafts.
  • Perform methods to increase platelet rich plasma (PRP) and learn the advantages for soft tissue as well as hard tissue on bone grafting.
  • Recognize the advantages for block vs. particulate bone grafts for large defects.
  • Describe the step-by-step procedure for harvesting a ramus and/or body of the mandible for block bone grafts.
