Extraction Site Management using Socket Graft, GBR & Soft Tissue Seal

with Dr. Sascha Jovanovic

October 2, 2020 in Los Angeles



This course will highlight different treatment options when it comes to Extraction Site Management for optimal esthetic, functional and predictable results. Often times, implant procedures can be severely impacted when extraction sites are not properly managed. This program will guide and prepare you to preserve or regain bone volume and the natural architecture of both soft and hard tissues.


  • Treatment planning and patient selection for optimal socket preservation
  • Concepts and techniques in bone grafting from incision to suturing
  • Extraction site management: Immediate vs Delayed Implant Placement with bone & soft tissue grafting
  • Socket Grafts vs. GBR
  • Atraumatic Extraction Protocol with Periotomes, Piezo Surgery, Benex Extractor, socket shield
  • Esthetic Zone Socket Management – Immediate socket graft / soft tissue seal healed vs. immediate implant placement
  • Immediate Implant Placement – Flapless vs with Flap (GBR Graft, Soft Tissue Graft, Submerged Healing)
  • Treatment planning for esthetic cases and the development of gingival papilla support



Dr. Sascha Jovanovic will present evidence-based material including clinical cases with 25-year follow-up, he will answer commonly asked questions in implant dentistry, such as:

  • should grafting be performed after tooth extraction?
  • what are the timelines for optimal socket preservation?
  • which is the best graft materials to use?
  • if immediate-flapless implant placement is not the answer, what provisional restoration options are optimal to minimize hard and soft tissue loss?


Participants will practice on mandibular pig jaw models, with the latest implant designs, microsurgical hand instruments, bone tacks, biomaterials and growth factors with autogenous bone and barrier membranes.




Dr. Sascha Jovanovic is considered one of the founders of guided bone regeneration (GBR). He was formally trained in periodontics at UCLA School of Dentistry, in Implant Dentistry at Loma Linda University and in Prosthodontics at University of Aachen, Germany and holds a Master of Sciences degree in Oral Biology from UCLA.

Dr. Jovanovic’s clinical research emphasizes esthetic management in dental implant therapy and bone and soft tissue reconstruction techniques. His applied research focuses on bone regeneration with different bone graft materials, growth factors and barrier membranes as well as the biology of soft tissues around teeth and implants. He restricts his clinical work to dental implant therapy and bone & soft tissue reconstruction and is Founder and Academic Chairman of the gIDE Institute and Assistant Professor at Loma Linda University.
