Major bone augmentation: Sausage technique or bone block grafting including contouring and soft tissue closure

Theoretical background:

  • How to decrease morbidity and increase patient comfort and satisfaction
  • Utilisings a resorbable membrane and autogenous particulated bone mixed with DBBM

  • The sausage technique and membrane stabilisations of the bone graft particles, while acting as an immobilising „skin“ in the early weeks of bone healing
  • Horizontal ridge augmentation, utilising a native collagen, resorbable membrane to completely immobilise and protect a particulated bone graft for the initial graft maturation

Sofia Aroca, France
Anton Sculean, Switzerland

English
Price € 250
30 participants max.

Periodontal plastic surgery

Theoretical background:

The course will provide a comprehensive treatment philosophy for obtaining predictable coverage of single and multiple gingival recessions and soft tissue recessions around dental implants. Innovative surgical techniques, such as the Laterally Moved Double Tunnel (LMDT) or the Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel (MCAT), have been shown to provide excellent outcomes and long-term stability.

Hands-on part – techniques presented:

  • Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel (MCAT)
  • Laterally Moved Double Tunnel (LMDT)
  • Connective tissue graft harvesting
  • Suturing techniques for donor site closure, fixation of soft tissue grafts and tension free flap closure

Model: pig jaw

Credit hours for this workshop: 4 (4 credit points for Germany)

Christoph Hämmerle, Switzerland
Goran Benic, Switzerland

English
Price € 250
30 participants max.

Modern clinical concept for the management of bone defects at implant sites

Theoretical background:

  • Classification of bone defects for simplified decision-making
  • Clinical concept for guided bone regeneration (GBR) of bone defects at implant sites
  • Indications for the use of different materials and techniques

Hands-on part – techniques presented:

  • GBR of peri-implant defects at extraction sockets
  • Guided implant placement in sites with unfavorable bone morphology
  • Management of extensive peri-implant defects in aesthetic sites

Model: plastic jaw model

  • Selection of the appropriate analytical techniques to answer specific research questions

Learning objectives:

  • Know the different histological techniques available for biomaterial research
  • Evaluation of a biomaterial requires selection of the appropriate histological techniques
  • Understand why one single histological technique cannot answer all research questions

Reinhard Gruber, Austria

Presentation content:

  • Experimental evaluation of biomaterials and basic in vitro testing
  • Review of current in vitro methods for biomaterial testing in dentistry
