In the recent InFocus webinar program, international experts (Dr. Giacomo Fabbri, Dr. Liliana Silva, Dr. Fabrizio Colombo) came together to offer advice on guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) techniques to help achieve dental implant treatment success. Now available free and on-demand, just a few of the key learnings include bone and soft tissue management, decision making to support implant treatment, GBR protocols and clinically-based evidence, major ridge augmentation techniques, management of bone resorption – and more.

Choosing material and techniques for the treatment and prevention of bone resorption: Dr. Fabrizio Colombo
Bone and soft tissue management procedures prior to or during implant surgery can be technically challenging. Choosing the right treatment protocol and products are fundamental to success. The creos™ product portfolio helps clinicians make the right choices. During this session, Dr. Fabrizio Colombo will share his own clinical evidence on the use of creos™ products for both simple and complex cases as well as the most appropriate treatment modalities for ensuring the safe and predictable management of hard and soft tissue.
- How to prevent bone resorption
- Key points in immediate vs delayed single tooth treatment
- Better understanding of tissue atrophy
- Soft tissue management
Soft tissue substitute materials in implant therapy – indications and clinical strategies: Dr. Giacomo Fabbri
Dr. Giacomo Fabbri, a leading expert in the field, shares his daily experiences with regenerative products from his practice and discusses their optimal use.
- Understand the value of regenerative procedures to support implant treatments
- Know the different treatment options
- Know how specialists treat their cases and the thought processes behind the treatment
Synthetic titanium reinforced PTFE membrane in 3D ridge augmentations: Dr. Liliana Silva
The use of non-resorbable membranes in guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedures is an effective technique in preparation for implant placement, especially in cases where major bone defects are presented. The Nobel Biocare creos™ portfolio now includes creos™ syntoprotect, a synthetic titanium reinforced PTFE membrane. Dr. Liliana Silva shares her clinical experience, tips and tricks, and clinically-based evidence using the syntoprotect membrane for different challenging indications.
- Know when to use titanium reinforced PTFE membranes for ridge augmentations
- Learn key points to remember in major ridge augmentation procedures
- Understand selection criteria for large bone graft procedures
