Updates on Radiographic Interpretation, Extraction Techniques and Flap Design 

Now that dental x-rays are becoming mandatory in most provinces, when performing dentistry, acquiring a good knowledge of the microanatomy of the oral cavity is becoming essential. This presentation will review variations of normal related to age, positioning, crowding and more. It will examine the signs of periodontal disease, the most common pathology encountered in the oral cavity. Then we will look at characteristic signs of caries, tooth resorption, dental fractures, jaw fractures, systemic diseases, and neoplasms.

There are variations in the way dentists extract teeth, even though the main principles remain the same. This presentation will demonstrate how to use luxators to remove teeth with minimal bone removal. It has the advantage to be quick and to preserve the anatomy surrounding the teeth.

Reviewing the literature, one finds that there are multiple designs of flaps used while extracting teeth. The ideal flap is well defined as being one that improves visualization, facilitates closure, has no tension, and is set in such a way that the sutures are on top of bone not on top of a hole. With these directives in mind, we shall review the flaps necessary for the proper extraction of each tooth.

Presented by Loic Legendre, DVM, FAVD, Dipl. AVDC, Dipl. EVDC, AVDC-ZWD.
