Day One:

Soft Tissue Management: Esthetic Considerations & Gingival Deficiencies 

Patients desire beautiful, natural looking smiles. When clinicians understand the harmony be-tween the face, lips, gums and teeth, we are better equipped to meet the patient’s esthetic goals. Soft tissue augmentation techniques have been perfected to be an integral component to the ultimate esthetic outcome. Understanding traditional soft tissue grafting techniques builds a foundation for newer alternatives that enrich our surgical options. Gummy smiles, gingival recession or hypermobile lips can now be improved with non-invasive plastic surgical procedures and the use of biologic modifiers

**Participants will practice soft tissue techniques in a hands-on exercise utilizing pig jaws, following faculty demonstration.
**Live patient surgery demonstrations will be presented on:
   • Autogenous connective tissue graft
   • Alloderm tunneling preservation graft

 

Day Two:

Hard Tissue Management: Implant-related Bone Grafting & Socket Site Development

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, patients desire the most predictable, long-lasting, esthetic solution. Unfortunately, their results are often compromised when they lose teeth due to disease, infection, trauma, or other reasons. Proper planning and execution of predictable bone grafting techniques can help restore a patient’s smile and function. Whether they are considering dental implants, orthodontics, or cosmetic dentistry, bone grafting plays a key role in both patient satisfaction and long-term quality of the dentistry they receive.

**Participants will practice grafting techniques in a hands-on exercise utilizing pig jaws, following faculty demonstration.
**A live patient surgery demonstration on extraction and socket grafting will also be presented.
