"Palatable" Alternatives to Connective Tissue Grafts - National Workshop Series
Soft-tissue grafting procedures are considered an integral part of implant dentistry, with various techniques and materials applied at different time-points. Although 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 favourable clinical success and less morbidity.
This workshop will focus on the clinical decision tree and include step-by-step procedures for the collagen-based volume-stable matrix (Geistlich Fibro-Gide®) based on recent clinical and scientific evidence.
Hands-on component – techniques presented:
· Soft-tissue thickening under pontics
· Soft-tissue thickening at implant sites
· Treatment of gingival recession defects
