Latest Online Program: Advances in Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation in the Aesthetic Zone by: Dr. Giuseppe Cicero

Learn from one of the best in the industry…

Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

Section 1: Hard Tissue Augmentation

  • Topics within this section
  • Predictable Vertical and Horizontal Alveolar Ridge Augmentation Using
  • Resorbable and Non-resorbable Membranes and 100% Allograft

Section 2: Soft Tissue Augmentation

  • Topics within this section
  • Soft Tissue augmentation and Closure of Grafted Extraction Sockets in the Anterior Maxilla: Novel techniques

Section 3: 3D printing technology in today’s soft and hard tissue regeneration

  • Topics within this section
  • Three-dimensional printing of the bony and dental anatomy allows for visualization and tactile examination, without the presence of the patient, and proves to be a significant advantage that ameliorates clinical challenges.

Section 4: Resorbable membranes in GBR – How far can we push it today?

  • Topics within this section
  • Vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation in both posterior and anterior jaws have represented a significant challenge for the operator. The use of resorbable membranes housing 100% allograft upon a deficient alveolar ridge is proving to be a valid and predictable technique providing the biological parameters sufficient for pre-implant periodontal, hard and soft tissue, support for a functional prosthesis.

Section 5: Soft tissue management after GBR

  • Topics within this section Use of AlloDerm for enhancing soft tissue architecture Pedicle connective tissue grafts vs. free connective tissue grafts

Section 6: Comprehensive treatment planning of complex soft and hard tissue deficiencies in the Aesthetic area

  • Topics within this section
  • Management of complex cases and complications – Where to start and how to proceed? A novel approach

Section 7: Biomaterials options: which bone and which membrane?

  • Topics within this section
  • Biological principles of GBR – Why choose a bio-material over another?
  • Histology of bone cores

Section 8: Flap designs, management of flaps and suturing techniques

  • Topics within this section
  • Advances in achieving primary closure in extensive GBR cases and the use of correct suturing techniques Review of the Principles of GBR
