Soft tissue augmentation: state of the art
This webinar will highlight the most utilized soft and hard tissue procedures in clinical practice. The aim is to utilize the least invasive and most conservative techniques needed to get the required results while featuring extraction socket grafting, GBR.
Bone and soft tissue augmentation is frequently required for esthetic and functional reconstruction. In order to achieve predictable outcomes of the regeneration, the methods have to be rooted in biologic principles supported by scientific evidence.
Thickness of the gingiva, zone of attached tissue, and tissue color all play important roles in developing the long-term health and esthetics in dental treatment of any kind. The exact determination of the location of the underlying bone acts as a prognostic indicator of future soft tissue levels. In this course, soft tissue grafting techniques with soft tissue substitute will be highlighted. The ability to utilize combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, and edentulous ridges, as well as to support facial soft tissue structures will be reviewed as to its critical role in “Complete Esthetics”. This lecture will highlight the most utilized soft and hard tissue procedures in clinical practice. lt will also cover in detail and simplify the process of site evaluation, critical anatomy flap design, harvest techniques and suturing as well as diagnosing volume of the bone deficiency and selecting the appropriate bone grafting technique. The aim is to utilize the least invasive and most conservative techniques needed to get the required results while featuring extraction socket grafting, GBR.
