    The quality, quantity and health of the soft tissues around teeth and implants are playing significant role on long-term survival and success.  A favourable soft tissue situation will ensure harmonious aesthetics can be achieved whilst facilitating effective maintenance and on-going tissue health.  Soft tissue regenerative procedures must be considered in clinical situations where soft tissue is compromised.  The gold standard for managing soft...

    Just like natural teeth, implants are constantly battling and resisting microbiological insults. A homeostatic situation is usually achieved when environmental and patient factors are favourable. This situation is finely balanced; any disturbances or adverse changes can easily shift the equation towards disease. Hands-on exercises will be undertaken on pig jaws and simulation models to put into practice a number of the presented concepts, including use of xenogenic materials to reconstruct hard and soft tissue periimplant defects. Soft tissue manipulation will also be addressed (e.g. instrumentation, flap design and raising

    techniques, tension-free primary closure, and suturing techniques).

    Key topics to be covered will include:

    • Comparing the aetiology and pathophysiology of periodontal diseases and peri-implantitis

    • Diagnostic considerations, risk factors and prevention

    • Principles of management:

    > Non-surgical management - step-by-step management of the mouth as a whole and affected implant(s)

    > Surgical management indications and options

    • Implant surface decontamination techniques and supporting evidence

    • Reconstructive techniques – use of biomaterials to regenerate bone and gain soft tissue volume

    • Role of antimicrobials in peri-implantitis management

    This course is designed for practitioners with an interest in expanding their concepts for Peri-Implantitis treatment.
