Learning objectives for this lecture include knowing the relationship of vital structures of the maxilla and mandible and strategically important teeth including the maxillary fourth premolar and canine teeth, and the mandibular first molar and canine teeth. A step-by-step format will be used to show the clinician how to use surgical techniques to extract these teeth. These techniques include mucoperiosteal flap planning and development, the methodology for the periosteal release incision, buccal alveolar bone removal, crown sectioning for multi-rooted teeth, crown-root fragment elevation and extraction, alveoloplasty, and wound apposition.
