Soft Tissue Grafting in Implant Dentistry Course

This one-day soft tissue grafting course is designed for clinicians who wish to add proficiency in performing soft tissue grafting surgery to their dental implant surgical repertoire. The focus of this workshop will be soft tissue grafting for biotype conversion and to achieve long-term stable functional and esthetic outcomes in dental implant therapy. We will focus on predictable soft tissue flap management techniques, suturing techniques, connective tissue graft harvesting techniques, socket grafting techniques with soft tissue grafts, and various soft tissue grafting techniques in esthetic dental implant sites. This course will also address the management of soft tissue complications in esthetic implant dentistry.
