Course Description

Vestibular Socket Therapy (VST) is an innovative clinical protocol that enables treatment of a wide variety of compromised fresh extraction sites, such as those with thin or deficient labial plates or active infection, with immediate implant placement to achieve a highly predictable clinical outcome. The protocol is designed to repair the socket osseous environment and place an immediate implant at the same time, shortening treatment time and improving patient satisfaction. This unique workshop session will highlight the concept in depth, enable clinicians to use the novel VST instrument kit and practice the full therapeutic protocol. **Participants will practice the VST protocol on specially fabricated training models incorporating dental implants, biologic materials and newly designed VST instruments kits.  

Learning Objectives

  • Review limitations and long-term outcomes of traditional immediate implant placement in the esthetic zone.
  • Understand the vestibular root removal technique and bone shielding concept.
  • Gain understanding of the Vestibular Socket Therapy concept, treatment scope, scientific evidence and clinical trials and how the VST protocol can positively influence patient acceptance.
