Hard & Soft Tissue Regeneration for Optimal Implant Esthetics

09.29.2017 8:30 am - 09.30.2017 4:00 pm

Successful oral rehabilitation often requires hard and soft tissue regeneration for optimal outcomes. This course will

examine effective techniques for bone grafting and soft tissue enhancements for improved esthetic results around

both natural teeth and dental implants. Clinical experience and scientific evidence will be presented to support the

materials and techniques demonstrated. This surgical technique course will provide you with the knowledge and skills

to successfully incorporate the new procedures into your daily practice with confidence and predictability. Following

each presentation, a hands-on workshop will be provided where you will perform the surgical procedures discussed

on special models designed to simulate actual clinical conditions.

 

Day 1 Points of Discussion:

Soft Tissue:

• Examine the different donor sources for hard tissue available for dental procedures with their advantages and disadvantages

• Discuss the evolution of soft tissue grafting procedures

• Acellular Dermal Matrix for coverage of exposed root surfaces

• Autogenous connective tissue grafts and rotated palatal grafts

• Pouch procedure and their advantages and limitations.

• Microsurgical instrumentation

• Advanced suturing techniques

• Platelet Rich Plasma for use in soft tissue procedures

Day 2 Points of Discussion:

Hard Tissue:

• Examine the different donor sources for hard tissue available for dental procedures with their advantages and disadvantages

• Tissue engineering using growth factors including Platelet Rich Plasma and BMP-2

• Socket grafting for predictable implant replacement

• Barrier membranes in guided bone regeneration

• Particulate grafting materials

• Block bone grafting materials

• Onlay block bone grafting for ridge augmentation

• Particulate bone grafting for ridge augmentation

• Fixation devices

• SonicWeld Rx membrane system for hard tissue augmentation

• Timing of implant placement- immediate versus delayed

Day 1 & 2 Hands-On Training:

This part of the course provides the opportunity for participants to have a workshop demonstrating techniques discussed on models.
