CBCT-based digital planning and execution of advanced bone surgical techniques with minimal invasive Piezotome – surgery
Hands-on Courses
24 Sep 2022, 09:00 - 18:00 CAPP Training Institute | Dubai | UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry, Implant Dentistry , Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery


Face-to-Face Training | CAPP Training Institute Dubai (full day)


Depicting the individual patient´s anatomy only in two dimensions bears high risks of unpleasant “surprises” during surgical execution and possible failure of the planned treatment. The digital workflow based on 3D imaging prevents possible failure already in the planning phase of the treatment. Furthermore, most recent CBCT devices even allow a precise determination of the individual patient´s bone quality to determine how many implants will be needed and if immediate loading might be possible in each individual case.

In the surgical execution of the CBCT-based treatment plan mills, drills, burs, and low-frequency oscillating saws were the only tools for bone-cutting for a long time and their use was rarely questioned on their biological and physiological impact on bone healing and osseointegration, especially when compared now with new minimally invasive and atraumatic Piezotome-surgical tools and Piezotome-surgical protocols, which proved to significantly enhance surgical precision, bone-healing and to reduce intra- and post-surgical morbidity.

Based on CBCT case-planning examples during this hands-on, the participants will train Piezotome-ridge-preservation technique in tooth extractions for simultaneous implant insertion as well as advanced bone-surgical techniques with Piezotomes such as autologous bone-block transfer, flapless crest-splitting, minimal invasive transcrestal Piezotome-sinus lifting and Inferior Alveolar Nerve Lateralization.
