Course Description:
Dental esthetics is dependent on specifically defined relationships between the soft tissue, the teeth or implants, and the underlying osseous scaffold. A critical soft tissue dimension is required for long-term predictable support of the gingival margin, crestal bone and restorative esthetics.
Part and parcel of a thorough dental evaluation today is to determine that gingival phenotype of the individual. Thickness of the gingiva, zone of attached tissue and tissue color all play important roles in developing the long-term health and esthetics in dental treatment of any kind. The exact determination of the location of the underlying bone acts as a prognostic indicator of future soft tissue levels.
Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Alloderm, Dermis, Pericardium) and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, edentulous ridges, as well as to support facial soft tissue structures will be reviewed as to its critical role in “Complete Esthetics”.
This hands-on course will highlight the 3 most utilized soft tissue procedures in clinical practice, the socket graft, ridge augmentation and root coverage procedures. It will teach in detail and simplify the process of site evaluation, critical anatomy, flap design, harvest techniques and suturing.
All necessary materials will be made available to each attendee; soft tissue models, surgical instruments, graft and suture materials.
