This full day lecture and intensive hands on workshop will focus on procedures which increases the thickness of soft tissue and the width of keratinized gingival around dental implants.
A fresh upper pig jaw model will be used for the training of the following techniques:
- Harvesting of strip gingival grafts, subepithelial Connective tissue grafts and Tuberosity soft tissue grafts.
- Buccal and apical repositioned flap with and without gingival grafts to enhance the width of keratinized gingiva
- Connective tissue placement for increasing thickness with a flap vs a tunneling procedure with the use of growth factors.
- An immediate extraction site implant placement with simultaneous GBR and connective tissue
