Hands-on course
09 May 2015, 09:00 - 18:00 Dubai, UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry

Hard Tissue or Soft Tissue? What’s the key to longtime success in Implantology using CAD/CAM technologies? How to build up bone in sufficient quantity, how to reach the best possible bone quality in the implantation area? How to get a stable and aesthetic soft tissue at the implant?

All these questions - and more - will be answered and explained in the theoretical part. In the practical part, we will demonstrate and train the surgical techniques and the use of latest digital techniques. The workshop is considered for advanced and professional users in Implantology and Soft Tissue Surgery. The workshop is split into two parts, a theoretical part of the lecture and a practical part of the model (Animal or plastic model. Animal model will be lamb head). In the theoretical part, an overview of accessible materials and proven techniques will be given. Similarities and differences of the materials (eg Free Gingiva Graft vs. Collagen Tissue Matrix) will be shown and explained. Both parts will contain bone reconstruction with the use of particulate bone graft material and membranes in simultaneous and two-stage technique. Soft Tissue surgery is more and more important an implant planning to receive good long-term results and satisfied patients. To enable the users to offer their patients the best possible result under the use of all available CAD-CAM techniques and materials is the goal of this workshop.
