Hard- and soft-tissue management courses
Tooth loss and extraction can lead to loss of bone volume. For an implant-based rehabilitation, sufficient bone quantity and quality is a key factor for a successful long-term prognosis. There are many surgical techniques for bone augmentation and soft-tissue management. Guided bone regeneration for instance can be applied to augment bone volume in order to help facilitate osseointegration.1 But how to know which technique and biomaterial is best suited for each case?
The right education level for your needs
If you are already placing implants and would like to broaden your competencies with education and experience in hard- and soft-tissue management, these advanced-level courses will provide you with an overview of:
- Bone biology.
- Bone formation and growth.
- Principles of bone and tissue regeneration.
- Sinus lift techniques.
- Papilla reconstruction around single-implant sites.
- Procedures and materials used for guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) in cases requiring minor ridge and soft tissue reconstruction.
Additionally, you will explore key elements of patient selection and treatment planning, recognizing that the prosthetic goal drives treatment planning.
If you are already experienced in these techniques, you can further develop your skills to treat complex cases demanding:
- Extensive ridge augmentation.
- Re-establishment of the vestibule after vertical and horizontal augmentation.
- Development of papillae for multiple implant sites in the esthetic region.
- Diagnosis and treatment of potential complications.
With the help of our hard- and soft-tissue management courses you can develop a thorough knowledge of surgical techniques for vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation, soft tissue reconstruction and esthetic case management.
