    Soft Tissue Is the Issue!
    A More Palatable Approach to Managing Soft Tissues
    Significant reductions in surgery time and patient morbidity can today be easily realised through the use of alternative soft tissue graft materials without compromising final outcomes. The quality and quantity of soft tissues around tooth and implant prosthetics will influence aesthetics and longer-term treatment outcomes. Favorable soft tissue situations assist in establishing harmonious emergence profiles and a reduced risk of trauma, inflammation, and recession of peri-implant tissues.

    This full-day hands-on workshop will present the scientific basis for soft tissue regeneration and compare the different options available and their indications. You can be rest assured that all attendees will leave the course with the knowledge and skills required to successfully treat soft tissue deficiencies using novel collagen materials, without harvesting autogenous tissue from the patient. Prevention and management of soft tissue surgical complications and soft tissue management (flap designs and suturing techniques) will also be addressed.

    Key Topics:
    • Causes of soft tissue deficiencies and prevention
    • Traditional treatment options of soft-tissue defects and their limitations
    • Implications of soft tissue deficiencies around implants, bridges, and natural teeth
    • Appropriate instrumentation
    • Hands-on techniques using xenografts to gain width of keratinised tissues
    • Hands-on techniques using xenografts to gain soft tissue volume
    • Hands-on techniques using xenografts for managing recession defects
    • The future of soft tissue management – latest research and developments
    • Complications – prevention and management

    This course is designed for practitioners with an interest in expanding their treatment concepts for soft tissue regeneration.

  • Maximising Post-Extraction Ridge Volume – The Art and Science of Socket Grafting

    Location:
    Online
    Date:
    Wednesday 31 March 2021 8:00pm AEDT
    Speaker:
    Dr Wendy Gill
    Course language:
    English
    Country:
    Australia
    Education credits CE:
    1.5
    Thematic Focus:
    Extraction Socket
    Methods:
    Geistlich Course, Hands-on with model (animal, cadaver, plastic)
    Target audience:
    General dentist
    Training level:
    Beginner
    Loss of ridge volume is an invariable outcome of tooth extraction. Loss of ridge width and height can have negative implications for future prosthetic management.  Fortunately, some relatively simple procedures can be performed at the time of extraction that help minimise loss of ridge volume. All general dental practitioners must be aware of, and able to offer, these procedures to their patients, regardless of who will provide future treatment (i.e., bridge, implant, denture). The first part of this interactive hands-on course will provide the scientific basis for socket grafting, including a discussion on the criteria that need consideration before socket grafting can be safely applied. Key technical aspects of the procedures will be discussed. The second part of the course will demonstrate the steps involved in a step-bystep fashion, allowing you to apply these procedures on the socket grafting model provided.
