The key principles to master for advanced hard and soft tissue techniques

This webinar is aimed at dentists with an interest in implants who want to check in on their level of experience in performing hard and soft tissue augmentation procedures.

This one hour session will encompass a 40 minute presentation and the opportunity for Q&A on the fundamental skills that should be mastered before progressing to more complex bone grafting and soft tissue augmentation techniques which are often necessary for successful implant placement. Take this opportunity to understand the key principles in hard and soft tissue grafting. Learn how to progress and apply these principles to more complex procedures such as horizontal and vertical bone augmentation and the Sausage Technique.

  • The biological concepts behind these procedures and what biologic materials to use in each case
  • Treating vertical defects
  • How to achieve horizontal bone augmentation
  • How to re-establish the soft tissue after augmentation.
