Hands-on workshops mit Daniel Thoma & Marco Zeltner @ Internationales Osteology Symposium
Soft tissue grafting procedures are considered an integral part of implant therapy and various techniques and materials are applied at different time-points. Whereas autogenous transplants are still widely used, they are associated with major disadvantages, most prominently the associated morbidity. Therefore, more recently, collagen-based soft tissue substitutes have been developed and demonstrate favorable clinical success and less morbidity. This workshop will focus on the clinical decision tree and include step-by-step procedures for the collagen-based matrice based on recent clinical and scientific evidence.
1. Simuation of immediate implant combining hard and soft tissue augmentation
2. Soft tissue thickening under pontics with classic flap
3. Soft tissue thickening at implant sites with palatal island flap
