The Importance of Suturing: A Master Class and Hands-on Workshop

The course consists of lectures and hands-on training on porcine mandibles.


Whether clinicians have been practicing for years or a relatively short period of time, mastering suturing and soft tissue management are essential skills that will predictably improve final post-surgical results. The goal of this hands-on course is to train clinicians in predictable and correct suturing techniques and flap designs. Attendees will learn about different types of suture material and needle configuration and indications for their use. The hands-on portion of the course will include ample firsthand “over the shoulder” tips, tricks, and advanced instruction.Participants will be confident with different suture types and experience the exercise of both popular and advanced suturing techniques and flap consideration in dental practice. Doctors interested in improving new and complex suturing skills will be provided with practical information on how to suture properly and improve surgical treatment outcomes.


  • Comprehend predictable wound healing, suture mechanics and the importance of correct suturing.
  • Learn to perform and apply the most useful suturing techniques in diverse clinical situations and understand the theory of these different suturing techniques in surgical exodontia, bone grafting, implant surgery, clot & membrane stabilization, primary closure.
  • Discover how to avoid the most common suturing mistakes.
  • Perform full-thickness and split-thickness flaps, GBR/GTR procedures and practice different types of classic and modern suture techniques update all surgical skills.
