Soft Tissue Management in Implant Dentistry
Dr. Marius Steigmann
Modules 1 & 2
2019 Dates Coming Soon!
Check back for our 2019 Dates!
◊ Soft tissue tension free closure – step by step
◊ Tension free flap adaptation – multiple options
◊ Suturing techniques with and against tension
◊ Adequate soft tissue manipulation for thin and thick biotype
◊ Improve soft tissue thickness
◊ Gain soft tissue elasticity
◊ Create keratinized gingiva
Different tissue biotype react different to surgical trauma. For this reason we have adjusted the surgical approach to the biotype (tissue thickness) specific to each patient and location in the oral cavity.
◊ Sinus lift
◊ Soft tissue management for sinus lift
◊ Bone augmentation in the mandible PPF, VBF or Steipod
◊ Bone augmentation in the mandible
PPF, VBF or Steipod
◊ Bone aumentation in the maxilla – palatal sliding flap
PPF → Periosteal Pocket Flap
VBF → Versatil Buccal Flap
The tissue thickness dictates the way it is manipulated for high volume augmentation. Thick biotype can be managed in a classical manner. On the other side thin biotype needs new surgical approaches with specific instruments. The course will describe step by step the gain of soft tissue for tension free closure even in cases of reduced soft tissue thickness.
◊ Incision in the aesthetic zone
◊ Different flap designs for the aesthetic zone
◊ for GBR
◊ for soft tissue improvement
◊ for creating keratinized gingiva
◊ for gaining soft tissue elasticity
◊ EBF aesthetic buccal flap, roll flap, pedicular flap and soft tissue uncovering techniques
◊ Advanced suturing techniques
The achievement of optimal aesthetics around anterior dental implants has been a major challenge for many clinicians. The key to an aesthetically pleasing appearance lies in the clinician’s ability to manage properly the soft tissue profile around dental implants.
◊ Hands-On for flap design in the
Incision and suturing on pig jaws
◊ Aesthetic soft tissue surgery
◊ Papilllae maintenance
◊ Papillae reconstruction
◊ Papillary illusion
