Major Complications of Minor Oral Surgery

1:30 - 3 p.m.

The purpose of this lecture is to share with dental professionals and staff, irrespective of their background, the plethora of complications that can occur even in routine surgery. A detailed preoperative assessment, hopefully, can help the clinician avoid poor outcomes and complications. However, the clinician must continue to strive for ideal outcomes by continuing education, optimizing treatment plans, surgical techniques, knowledge of the anatomy and  medicine, proper  patient selection, and detailed maintenance. Despite all the above, complications can occur. Equally important is the early recognition and management. The potential to limit further morbidity may be dependent on early and interceptive diagnoses and surgical management. It is imperative to avoid exacerbation of a complication, such as, under treatment or estimation of a local infection resulting in a more serious complication such as osteomyelitis or an early neuropraxia leading into a chronic pain syndrome. Failures to recognize, diagnose and treat the initial problem can lead to subsequent clinical, psychological and medico-legal issues for patients and clinicians. 
 
This course will increase the clinician's knowledge and awareness of  the board spectrum of complications; ranging from the initial work-up to the actual surgery and post-operative period. The lecture will outline the diagnosis and management of several categories of complications.
 

Fr245 - Trigeminal Nerve Injuries from Dental Implants and Oral Surgery
Time: 9 - 10:30 AM
Type: Registered    Handouts: No
Dentist Fee: $45.00  Other Fee: $45.00

Dental implant surgery has become the standard of care for reconstruction of simple and complex edentulous areas of the maxilla and mandible. The risks of injury to the branches of the mandibular division (MdN) of the trigeminal nerve (inferior alveolar nerve [IAN], lingual nerve [LN], and mental nerve [MN]) are known complications of implant restoration. The use of advanced imaging modalities such as cone beam computed tomography (CT) scans and high- definition panoramic radiographs can assist in localization of the inferior alveolar canal (IAC). However, despite correct planning, the possibility of injury to the MdN is not entirely eliminated. Participants will learn that In the treatment of nerve injuries associated with dental implant surgery it is most important that there be prompt recognition and acknowledgment of the patient’s sensory complaints and timely decisions regarding management to maximize the recovery of nerve function.

The tremendous need for oral surgery has spurred the dental profession across specialties to incorporate surgery into their practices regardless of training and or overall experience.  Fortunately, the vast majority of surgery results in successful dental surgical rehabilitation. However, the incidence of disastrous complications, although rare, have become more commonplace and are now being documented in the literature. The purpose of this lecture is to share with dental professionals and staff, irrespective of their background, the plethora of complications that can occur even in routine surgery. The potential to limit further morbidity may be dependent on early and interceptive diagnoses and surgical management.  The goal of this lecture is to increase the clinician's knowledge and awareness of the broad spectrum of complications.
