Course Description:
Today in implant dentistry, osseointegration alone is no longer enough. Implants must not only be osseointegrated, but in the right place and esthetic. The excuse, "well that is where the bone was", is no longer acceptable.

Techniques that are now available to augment hard and soft tissue at the various phases of treatment will be shown. Techniques will include particulate bone grafting, guided bone regeneration with bio-absorbable and non-resorbable membranes, autogenous block grafting, the use of the osteotomes, and maxillary sinus grafting.

Soft tissue procedures to assure optimal esthetic reconstruction before implant placement, at implant placement, at second stage surgery and after second stage surgery will also be demonstrated. These include flap designs to optimize ideal soft tissue profiles, the dimensional requirements and limitation of papilla regeneration between implants, implants and natural teeth, and implants and pontics will be shown.

The sequence and timing of implant placement and regeneration will vary depending on the situation. Implant placement may be immediate or delayed up to nine months depending on the quantity of bone. The advantages and disadvantages of each of the treatment modalities will also be discussed.

Following this course, attendees should be able to:
Understand the variety of techniques that are available to them for hard and soft tissue regeneration
Choose the appropriate therapy for different surgical situations
Perform that surgery with higher success and low complication rates
