Master Course in GBR and Sinus Floor Elevation Procedures
Implant therapy has rapidly expanded in private practice in recent years documented by a continued increase of implant patients every year. This positive development is due to various factors, among them a significant progress with bone augmentation procedures. Today, more than 50% of implants at our department are placed in conjunction with a bone augmentation procedure, using either a simultaneous or a staged approach. Two surgical procedures are mainly used to predictably augment bone deficiencies in the jaws, the GBR technique with barrier membranes or sinus floor elevation (SFE) methods using either the lateral window technique or the transalveolar Osteotome technique.
This interactive 3 day CE course has been established for experienced implant surgeons. The speakers will
present the biological basis for current surgical procedures in various lectures, the selection of biomaterials, and appropriate healing periods in such demanding. The different surgical techniques will be presented with live surgeries. In addition, two hands-on workshops are offered.
