Alveolar Ridge Strategies: Single Tooth to Full Arch Reconstruction is the practical application of the Pikos Institute Philosophy in hard tissue management for implant reconstruction. It is designed for clinicians who wish to develop proficiency in performing implant hard tissue augmentation procedures. This advanced level course is for clinicians who desire to improve their knowledge and skill sets in hard tissue grafting for implant dentistry. The focus is on reverse tissue engineering in optimization of hard tissue architecture for implant site development and implant placement.

A sequential 3D digital diagnostic protocol will be utilized to improve patient selection, graft site evaluation, harvest site assessment and to minimize complications. Contemporary surgical bone grafting protocols, including extraction site management, ridge expansion, GBR, mesh with BMP and autogenous block grafting will be presented. A dedicated section of the course will address bone grafting complications.

This course will include a hands-on hard tissue grafting workshop and LIVE surgical demonstration cases.Click for Testimonials

"Excellent course! It was full of real cases, real successes, challenges and failures. Everything was thoroughly explained, starting with the underlying science all the way through surgery to restorative success. Dr. Pikos’ education and delivery style made the course both valuable and fun."
Dr. Shepard Delong – GP – Lake Oswego, OR

"Being a senior OMS faculty at an academy medical center, we are frequently doing reconstruction and bone graft. Having been to numerous surgically centered CE courses, I have found this course to have been the most surgically and clinically beneficial course of all. The many pearls of knowledge will have great benefit for all procedures from the simple “doghouse” rehabilitation to the large “castles.” I will be a future participant for other Pikos Institute courses."
Dr. Butch Ferguson – OMS – Martinez, GA

"Dr. Pikos’ experience, wisdom and insights are shared openly, professionally and most importantly to assist. Many learn how to help patient’s outcomes with challenging cases. Dr. Pikos is a consummate colleague and mentor. The Pikos Institute raises the bar on all levels. The team, venue and mission are obvious…to provide a phenomenal experience. Well done! Highly recommended."
Dr. Jim Hamman – GP – Ripon, WI

"As my implant experience grew, I began to realize my limitations. I sought additional training that would help me achieve my goal of providing long-lasting, predictable results. The information, knowledge and hands-on experience at Pikos Institute will propel my implant practice to greater heights."
Dr. David Graham – GP – Jefferson Hills, PA

"This is like drinking from a fire hose. There is a wealth of information presented! Luckily there are excellent hand-outs provided. Getting the billing codes will help me and my office staff."
Dr. Cecil Dorsett – OMS – Gadsden, AL

"Misch was my guru; Pikos took over in my mind. I sincerely appreciate his love of teaching. The surgeon is a true master."
Dr. Greg Tharp – Prosth. – Flowood, MS

"A no-brainer course! Can’t wait to take the sinus grafting and soft tissue courses. New things being implemented Monday morning."
Dr. David Sullivan – GP – Brentwood, TN
