Learning about proven surgical protocols and new trends in advanced implant dentistry

Join Prof. Matteo Chiapasco, Dr. Otto Zuhr, Dr. Beat Wallkamm and Dr. Helmut Hildebrandt for hands-on workshops over the two days.

Optimize results in complex rehabilitations

Prof. Matteo Chiapasco, Italy

Bone substitutes play an important role in order to reduce the need of bone harvesting. Unsatisfactory results may be also related to insufficient quality and quantity of peri-implant soft tissues which can be corrected with autogenous soft tissues or collagen matrices.

Optimizing the thickness of the peri-implant mucosa

Dr. Otto Zuhr, Germany

The thickness of the peri-implant mucosa does not only affect the esthetic outcome. Moreover it’s possible influence on the peri-implant bone is currently a hot topic in regenerative dentistry. State of the art and innovative therapeutic approach –especially with the new volume-stable collagen matrix Geistlich Fibro-Gide® – are illustrated.

New methods and materials for soft-tissue regeneration

Dr. Beat Wallkamm, Switzerland

«Can an off -the-shelf-product replace a CTG? If yes, in which indications»? The associated incision- & flap techniques are presented and discussed in detail. Subsequently, the techniques with the appropriate materials (such as GeistlichFibro-Gide®) are practiced on an animal model.

Customized Bone Regeneration CBR®

Dr. Helmut Hildebrandt, Germany

Augmentations with particulate materials are,according to experience, more forgivable, but limited in terms of construction volume. CAD-CAM technologies for titanium meshes could help overcome typical limitations known for guided bone regeneration (GBR) and on lay techniques.
