This presentation will provide the scientific basis for understanding the OsteoGen® crystals, as well as the OsteoGen® Bone Grafting Plugs
and Strips. The presentation will review simple and cost effective surgical protocols for everday socket preservation without requiring a
seperate membrane as well as cover post-extraction grafting around immediate implant placement. An overview of extraction site preparation techniques that yield optimal and predictable clinical outcomes when using these bone grafting products will be discussed.

Learning Objectives: At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
1. Demonstrate simple, predictable and cost effective socket grafting techniques without the use of a membrane using the OsteoGen® Bone Grafting Plugs
2. Understand surgical applications covering post-extration grafting around immediate implant placement including filling interproximal and facial gaps after extraction using OsteoGen® Plugs and Strips
3. Explain extraction site preparation techniques that yield optimal and predictable clincial outcomes
