On1 concept – soft tissue preservation around implants, Dr. Giacomo Fabbri

  • Learning benefits of non-removable subgingival components in preserving soft tissue stability.
  • Using the On1 concept for single restoration with immediate temporarization.
  • Understanding ease of use of the Universal Base for the fabrication of screw-retained restorations.

Digital workflow for immediate tooth replacement, Dr. Peter Wöhrle

  • Learn how the use of NobelClinician simplifies treatment planning.
  • Place a NobelActive implant in the extraction socket in the anterior region.
  • Practice how to optimally design a screw-retained temporary crown to support tissues when applying immediate protocols. 
  • Understand the impact on concave vs. convex profile of the conical connection abutment to guide the tissue.

Guided bone regeneration techniques with simultaneous implant placement, Dr. Sascha Jovanovic

  • Understand when it is safe to place implants in a narrow ridge.
  • Learn to integrate regenerative procedures with simultaneous implant placement regenerative procedures, using xenogenic bone replacement materials and resorbable membranes.
  • Practice suturing techniques used for regenerative procedures.


Join us in learning protocols for the rehabilitation of patients with partial edentulism in the esthetic zone. Top experts will share their experiences in evidence-based treatment planning, using digital tools, modern implant designs, and established surgical and restorative protocols. Discover the innovative prosthetic components that improve treatment outcomes.


Dr. Peter Wöhrle

Dr. Peter Wöhrle received DMD and MMedSc (oral biology) degrees from Harvard University School of Dental Medicine, in addition to a specialty certificate in prosthodontics and a specialty certificate in implant dentistry. Prior to his studies in Boston, he completed a four-year dental technician program in Switzerland. At Harvard, he worked with others on developing the concept of immediate loading with Brånemark implants. Later, he applied these principles to the single tooth and the concept of immediate tooth replacement. He lectures worldwide, and his practice in Newport Beach, California, focuses exclusively on dental implants.

Dr. Sascha Jovanovic

Dr. Sascha A. Jovanovic was trained in Periodontics at UCLA School of Dentistry following his DDS degree at the University of Amsterdam. He was trained in implant dentistry at Loma Linda University and prosthodontics at University of Aachen in Germany. He received the MS degree in oral biology from UCLA, where he functioned as Course Director in Continuing Dental Education and Past Director of the Implant Center. He is currently Associate Professor at the Loma Linda University Implant Program and Academic Chairman of the gIDE Institute where he developed in 2003 their peer reviewed e-learning platform and in 2006 the one-year master clinician program in implant dentistry. He is a Past President of the European Association for Osseointegration. He has received several research awards and lectures worldwide. He has published 67 journal articles. His private practice in Los Angeles is limited to dental implant therapy and bone, soft tissue and esthetic reconstruction.

Dr. Giacomo Fabbri

Dr. Giacomo Fabbri graduated with honors in dentistry and dental prosthodontics at the University of Pavia. He is an active member of the Italian Academy of Prosthetic Dentistry (A.I.O.P), a prestigious scientific Academy in the field of esthetic and prosthetic dentistry. He has published several international articles in peer-reviewed journals and lectured in Italy and abroad on topics related to fixed prosthodontics and implant prosthodontics with specific interest on esthetics, new materials and minimally invasive approach. He works in Ban Mancini Fabbri Specialist Dental Practice, located in Cattolica (Italy), in the field of esthetics and prosthetic rehabilitation on natural teeth and implants.

Products in focus

creos xenogain

The creos xenogain portfolio comprises an extensive range of non-sintered xenogenic bone substitutes for guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) procedures.

On1 concept

The unique On1 Base moves the restorative platform of Nobel Biocare conical connection implants from bone level to tissue level. It remains in position from implant placement to finalization, which leaves the soft tissue undisturbed for optimized healing.
