Course Description

This course is designed to help dentists incorporate a range of soft tissue grafts into their daily practice for treatment of soft tissue deformities and esthetic complications around dental implants. Soft tissue plays a large role in esthetics, health, and longevity of dental implants, but this aspect is often underestimated. The concept of peri-implant phenotype and providing guidance and treatment recommendation for successful dental implants will be discussed in detail. The importance of keratinized mucosa on peri-implant health will be reviewed together with the various approaches to regenerate keratinized and attached peri-implant mucosa. The key role of tissue thickness for esthetics and bone level stability, as well as surgical approaches and materials for mucosal thickness augmentation, will be discussed. The course will also focus on management of simple and advanced implant esthetic complications using soft tissue grafting. Participants will learn an evidence-based rationale for choosing the most appropriate surgical technique for each scenario.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the concept of peri-implant phenotype and its relevance to health and esthetic outcome with dental implants
  • Learn how to augment or recreate an adequate band of keratinized and attached mucosa around dental implants
  • Learn how to manage and augment soft tissue in case of peri-implant disease
  • Understand the rationale and the techniques for mucosal thickness augmentation at implant sites
  • Learn how to choose the most appropriate soft tissue graft material (connective tissue graft, acellular dermal matrix, collagen matrix, with or without biologic agents) for each case scenario
  • Learn methods to prevent implant esthetic complications
  • Know why, when, where and how to perform different surgical techniques (coronally advanced flap, tunnel techniques, prosthetic-surgical approach, vertical soft tissue augmentation with submerged healing) for the treatment of implant esthetic complications
  • Master palatal harvesting techniques and donor site management
  • Master flap management (design, elevation, releasing, and suturing) and graft stabilization

**This course combines didactic lectures and hands-on workshops with models designed by Drs. Barootchi, Tavelli and Wang specifically for this course to cover a variety of soft tissue grafts.
