The intended audience for this event includes:
Significant reductions in surgery time and patient morbidity can today be easily realised through the use of alternative soft tissue graft materials without compromising final outcomes. The quality and quantity of soft tissues around tooth and implant prosthetics will influence aesthetics and longer-term treatment outcomes. Favorable soft tissue situations assist in establishing harmonious emergence profiles and a reduced risk of trauma, inflammation, and recession of peri-implant tissues.
This full-day hands-on workshop will present the scientific basis for soft tissue regeneration and compare the different options available and their indications. You can be rest assured that all attendees will leave the course with the knowledge and skills required to successfully treat soft tissue deficiencies using novel collagen materials, without harvesting autogenous tissue from the patient. Prevention and management of soft tissue surgical complications and soft tissue management (flap designs and suturing techniques) will also be addressed.
• Causes of soft tissue deficiencies and prevention
• Traditional treatment options of soft tissue defects and their limitations
• Implications of soft tissue deficiencies around implants, bridges, and natural teeth
• Appropriate instrumentation
• Hands-on techniques using xenografts to gain width of keratinised tissues
• Hands-on techniques using xenografts to gain soft tissue volume
• Hands-on techniques using xenografts for managing recession defects
• The future of soft tissue management – latest research and developments
• Complications – prevention and management
This course is designed for practitioners with an interest in expanding theirtreatment concepts for soft tissue regeneration.
