Embarrassed by recession around a recently placed crown in the esthetic zone? What is the solution? Could it have been prevented? We believe so.
Faced with exposed roots that are esthetically undesirable, or sensitive? Can the root be predictably covered with gingiva rather than an unsightly Class V restoration?
See Evidence Based solutions that WILL solve these and other practical soft tissue challenges you face on a daily basis, and be exposed to the current strategies for soft tissue augmentation around teeth and crowns.
In this 1 day workshop, methods are illustrated to solve those everyday problems and enhance your restorative results; plus give you the peace of mind that the gingiva stays over your newly placed esthetic crown margins. You will see how to create predictable soft tissue augmentation, which in turn creates a predictable base for your restorative success.
You will experience an in-depth look at practical applications for both Free Gingival and Connective Tissue Grafts. The differences are distinct, and those differences will be thoroughly explained. PLUS, you will have the opportunity to improve your skills and practice these procedures on pig jaws. The course includes two surgical hands-on exercises, multiple case illustrations, and two surgical video demonstrations of the grafting procedures.
Evidence from the dental literature is used throughout to support the statements made. The workshop will be suitable for clinicians with or without surgical expertise.
You will learn about two grafting methods. First, is the Free Gingival Graft. These are useful for eliminating frenum pulls, stopping recession, and preventing recession around esthetic restorations.
Second, we teach Subepithelial Connective Tissue Grafts. These combine the most positive features of both free gingival as well as pedical grafts, namely good tissue keratinization and additional blood supply for higher predictability. Learn how to chose where to use a CTG and how they are effective for root coverage in cases of severe recession on isolated or multiple teeth, especially in the maxilla where esthetic root coverage is often desirable.
The course not only includes a workbook and detailed slide illustrations, but also two surgical video demonstrations of the grafting procedures. Participants will gain hands on experience harvesting, placing and suturing both types of grafts on pig jaws.
