ADVANCED BONE AND SOFT TISSUE AUGMENTATION
IN IMPLANT DENTISTRY

ADVANCED BONE AND SOFT TISSUE AUGMENTATION IN IMPLANT DENTISTRY

Why soft tissues are the key point when dealing with esthetics in implant dentistry? What is their biological role? Why pink esthetics, intended as the proper relationship between the implant fixture and the supported crown, is so important for the final outcome of the therapy? The concept of soft-tissue integration is the new challenge in implant dentistry. Severe horizontal and vertical bone resorptions require lateral and supracrestal regeneration, a challenge for clinicians since the external soft tissue pressure is considered to be a major reason for failure of the surgical procedure in nonspacemaking bone defects. Guided bone regeneration using non-resorbable membranes, customized titanium mesh as well as compressed collagen membranes have been proposed for horizontal and vertical bone augmentation. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues. During this 3-day workshop different surgical approaches will be discussed from horizontal and vertical bone regeneration to soft tissues augmentation. Different sites, different protocols, one goal: predicability.


ADVANCED PERIODONTAL PLASTIC AND REGENERATIVE SURGERY

Dr Prof DANIELE CARDAROPOLI

ADVANCED PERIODONTAL PLASTIC AND REGENERATIVE SURGERY

Periodontal disease may lead the creation of infra bony defects that may benefit from regenerative surgical procedures. Several surgical approaches have been developed during the years, with the aim of preserving the interdental papilla and develop flap designs in order to achieve optimal outcomes. The tridimensional anatomy of the bone defect, the difference between self-containing and non self-containing defects, will lead in the decision making process between the different biomaterials. Gingival recessions may have different etiology and may be treated using different techniques. CTG has been considered as the gold-standard in terms of percentage of root coverage and long-term stability. Scientific research has developed biomaterials as alternative to connective tissue.
