Predavanje

Mucogingival approach to implant placement

Immediate implant installation is traditionally considered as a flapless procedure and it is indicated only in sites with ideal anatomical conditions such as an intact facial bone wall with a thick wall phenotype (> 1 mm) and a thick gingival biotype.

The aim of the lecture will be to describe a mucogingival approach to immediate implant installation that allow performing this surgical treatment also in different clinical scenarios, such as:

  • Unfavorable position of the soft tissue margin of the tooth to be extracted
  • Unfavorable condition of the soft tissue margin of the adjacent teeth (presence of gingival recession or altered passive eruption)
  • Loss of papillae height and thickness of the tooth to be extracted
  • Unfavorable condition of the buccal bone wall
    _____

Learning objectives

  • Identify indications for immediate implant placement
  • Learn how to use in the proper way the biomaterials for GBR
  • Learn how to manage flap elevation and CTG

Hands-on course

Mucogingival esthetic surgery around teeth

The hands-on course is planned and designed to develop periodontal surgical skills.

The aim of the workshop is to teach the participants the procedure of the coronal advanced flap, the harvesting technique of the connective tissue graft and the use of a collagen matrix for the treatment of gingival recessions.

The workshop will be held by Prof. Zucchelli who will show on the pig’s jaw the procedures that will be performed by all the participants. Participants will be individually followed while performing the exercises and will receive direct suggestions from the mentor.

Learning objectives of the workshop:

  1. Describe step by step root coverage surgical procedures
  2. Describe step by step connective tissue graft harvesting
  3. Manipulation of a collagen matrix as CTG substitute
  4. Suturing techniques
