16 Botiss Biomaterials - hands-on workshop

English
€ 250
30 participants max.

Gingival recession coverage – Do we still need autogenous grafts?

Theoretical background:

Autogenous connective tissue grafts (CTG) combined with various surgical techniques have been extensively used for gingival recession coverage. More recently, collagen matrices of porcine origin have been introduced as a soft-tissue graft substitute and possible alternative to CTG in periodontal plastic surgery. Various soft tissue grafting techniques and the use of a novel 3D collagen matrix of porcine origin (mucoderm®) for the treatment of single and multiple gingival recessions will be reviewed and discussed in this presentation.

Hands-on part – techniques presented:

  • Incision design and flap manipulation
  • Different techniques for root coverage
  • Autogenous tissue harvesting techniques
  • The use of a 3D collagen matrix and enamel matrix proteins for root coverage

Model: pig jaw

The next generation of allogenic bone grafts – Modern techniques for 3-dimensional bone regeneration

Presentation content:

Due to its full remodeling potential, processed allogenic bone enables formation of purely vital bone within quite a short healing time. New “state-of-the-art” techniques have been established for the treatment of complex osseous defects including the modified shell technique (maxgraft® cortico) and the maxgraft® bonebuilder technique using individualized CAD/CAM-based bone blocks. During the workshop, both techniques will be introduced and based on clinical experience, advantages, disadvantages and limitations will be discussed by the two most experienced clinical users of both methods.

Learning objectives:

  • Principles of functional and aesthetic implantology
  • Manufacturing process of customized bone blocks
  • Indications/limitations
  • Benefits of processed allogenic bone transplants

Too sexy to be lost – New techniques to maintain soft tissue around implants

Theoretical background:

Do’s and don’ts regarding soft-tissue handling around implants and teeth. This workshop demonstrates modern techniques in tissue grafting and soft-tissue enhancement. Possible complications will also be discussed.

Hands-on part – techniques presented:

Intensive micro-surgical hands-on procedure

The participants must (mandatory) bring surgical loupes to the Workshop. Minimal magnification 3.5X, optimal magnification 5.0X.

Hands-on talks with DENTSPLY Implants: Plan for treatment success –unlock your digital potential

Theoretical background:

To achieve outstanding prosthetic results as planned, even in complex cases and compromised sites, a restorative-driven treatment approach, supported by accurate 3D implant planning and a guided treatment solution, is key to success and patient satisfaction. For predictable implant treatment, DENTSPLY Implants offers clinicians SIMPLANT, a comprehensive 3D system that is compatible with most implant systems, all DICOM compatible (CB)CT scanners, and major optical and intraoral scanners.

Hands-on part – techniques presented:

Dr. Dagnelid, a clinician with extensive experience in guided surgery systems, will present all treatment steps from dental scanning and planning, drilling and implant placement, to Immediate Smile temporary restorations delivered at time of surgery. All steps of digital 3D treatment planning with SIMPLANT will be shown, followed by a practical training of guided implant placement and immediate restoration with a patient-specific ATLANTIS abutment. After this course, participants will know a lot more about the most important benefits of the SIMPLANT concept and gain valuable insights for unlocking the digital potential of their dental implant practice.

30 participants max.

Improving your confidence level in hard and soft tissue management

Introduction:

In this hands-on session you will simultaneously place a NobelParallel Conical Connection implant in a pig jaw and reconstruct the bone.  The situation mimics atrophy seen at healed extraction sites in the anterior maxilla as well as when horizontal bone is missing.

Using a membrane and bone substitute from the creos regenerative product line, you’ll work through the procedures for regenerating the bone. You’ll also learn techniques for evaluating the situation as well as steps that help ensure an esthetic outcome.

Schedule:
10:00 AM–10:30 AM Theoretical start – Dr Christer Dahlin: Why and when bone regenerative solutions
10:30 AM–11.00 AM Prepare for hands-on with pig jaws – Dr Isabella Rocchietta: Steps and learning outcomes
11:00 AM–11:20 AM Break
11:20 AM–1:15 PM Participants perform the procedure on the pig jaw

Theoretical background:

The evidence of predictable surgical bone reconstruction in the vertical and horizontal dimension using guided bone regeneration (GBR) has evolved over the last 20 years and is now considered a standard of care for posterior and anterior implant sites. The steps and benefits for bone and soft tissue grafting will be addressed and highlighted.

21 Straumann - theoretical workshop

3D-reconstruction of vertical bone defects

Presentation content:

The bone ring technique – an advanced technique of simultaneous augmentation and implant placement.

Three-dimensional reconstruction, soft tissue management and implant rehabilitation of the atrophic alveolar ridge are considered as challenging procedures. Conventional procedures with bone blocks require manually cut and shape at the time of implantation and the morbidity associated with donor sites for autografts makes these techniques less appealing to both, patients and clinicians.

The maxgraft® bonering technique is an innovative solution for the three-dimensional vertical augmentation of bone defects. The bone rings do not only allow perfect reconstruction of the anatomical shape, but especially allow the simultaneous augmentation and placement of dental implants, which saves treatment time and the overall time to teeth. 

Learning objectives:

Basic principles of three-dimensional bony reconstructions and implant rehabilitation.

  • The bone ring technique step-by-step (including sinus augmentation)
  • Soft tissue management in challenging cases
  • Techniques for a tension-free wound closure
  • Techniques for functional and aesthetic restoration
  • Use of innovative concepts for soft tiussue management (mucoderm to soft tissue thickening and Straumann Endogain® to improve wound healing)

Hard and soft tissue reconstruction in complex clinical cases

Presentation content:

  • The presentation shows the interdisciplinary approach to the management of complex clinical cases.
  • The main focus is to share new solutions and data regarding soft and hard tissues reconstruction by means of the biological principles of GBR, reviewed from a modern perspective.
  • The images and the video will show the different phases of rehabilitation of a complete arch, including orthodontic, endodontic, restorative and implant treatments and the final prosthesis, with special regard to the chronological aspect.

Learning objectives:

  • To define the most rational treatment plan according to the patient’s desires.
  • To understand the rationale behind a determined therapeutic sequence in order to better achieve predetermined clinical standards.
  • To evaluate all aspects of a complex case before starting with the practical phases.
