    Application of Bone and Soft Tissue Substitutes in Oral Regeneration A Contemporary "Round-Table Discussion" and Hands-on Workshop The array of biomaterials now available in oral tissue regeneration can make the selection of the most appropriate
    material somewhat confusing and even daunting. This full-day workshop is designed to provide a contemporary review of our understanding of hard and soft tissue regeneration in the oral and maxillofacial region.
    Bone and soft tissue histology and physiology will be reviewed, including the processes of inflammation, wound healing, and osseointegration. Autogenous, allogenic, xenogenic, and synthetic materials will be discussed, focussing on the advantages, disadvantages, and most appropriate indications and applications of these materials.

    Hands-on exercises will be undertaken on models and pig jaws to put into practice a number of the presented concepts,
    including harvesting of autogenous tissues, application of xenogenic materials, and soft tissue management (i.e. flap design, tension-free primary closure, and suturing techniques).
    Key topics that will be addressed include:
    • Extraction Socket Management
    • Guided Bone Regeneration
    • Techniques to gain horizontal and/or vertical bone dimensions
    • Techniques for increasing width of keratinised tissues
    • Techniques for managing recession defects
    • Techniques for increasing soft tissue volumes
    • Use of biomaterials in the maxillary sinus

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

    Tooth extraction is invariably followed by resorption of the ridge which can have negative implications for a future pontic site or for the subsequent placement of implants. The first part of this interactive hands-on course will provide the rationale for the decision criteria to graft or not to graft a socket at the time of extraction. Key technical aspects of the procedure will be presented to increase the success rate.

    Hands-On Course includes:
    • Delivery of Geistlich #HOMEKIT to your door
    • Log In for - Live Lecture
    - Practical and Guided Hands-On Exercises
    • Live Online Follow-up Q&A Session and Discussion Group
    • $100 off your Socket Management pack*
    #Homekit includes:
    • Geistlich Non-Sterile Samples
    • Human Jaw Training Model
    • Adson Forceps
    • Dappen Dish
    • Medical Gauze
    • Disposable Syringe
    • Medipac® Monofast Non-Sterile Suture
  • Ridge Preservation in General Practice

    Why didn't you put some bone in when you took my tooth out, Doc?
    Post-extraction resorption of the alveolar ridge is a natural phenomenon that significantly reduces bone width and height. 50% or more of the bone width can be lost over the first 12 months of extraction, with a large proportion of this loss occurring during the first 3 months. Loss of bone width and height may make future treatment options such as implants and fixed bridges much more challenging than they need to be.

    Research and clinical experience gained over the past 20 years has proven that simple extraction socket management techniques can help preserve the ridge by compensating for the loss of bone that naturally occurs following an extraction.

    Dr Wendy Gill will discuss the science of alveolar ridge preservation and present techniques, in a step-by-step fashion, that can be employed to help preserve as much bone and soft tissue as possible. Patient selection, site selection, materials to use, and managing complications will also be addressed.

    These are relatively simple techniques that all general practitioners must be aware of and able to offer their patients, regardless of who will be providing future treatment (i.e. implants, fixed bridges, etc.). During the hands-on workshop, you will practice these techniques under the expert guidance of  Dr Wendy Gill.

    Attendance will be limited to ensure an ideal and COVID-Safe learning experience.

    Geistlich Pharma Australia & New Zealand would like to invite you to join the continuing education program designed for dental nurses, practice managers and implant coordinators.

    Due to the great feedback we received from our guests since the launch of this program in 2017, we are dedicated to build on this successful educational platform and continue to share interesting topics related to your work at the practice.

    Geistlich for Excellence 365 is an exclusive networking event aimed to bring together dental auxiliary staff to facilitate the sharing of ideas, knowledge and best practice examples from the nurse’s perspective.

    The evening will include a practical component and interactive discussions addressing critical topics such as patient education, products and safety and the right choice of biomaterials for patients who want to donate blood.
