Currently, there are a variety of successful techniques available for hard-and soft tissue regeneration. For GBR procedures we even have good long-term documentations. The present lecture will provide you with all necessary information related to extraction socket management, soft tissue management and the next level of hard and soft tissue regeneration. In addition, you will learn how successful implants in GBR treated sites are, compared to implants in native bone over a mean observation period of more than 20 years.
In order to further reduce the invasiveness and improve patient care the next level for hard- and soft tissue regeneration needs to be achieved. On the level of hard tissue regeneration this includes using stabilized bone graft materials, which provide more volume stability. On the level of the soft tissue there is a need to replace the invasive techniques of autogenous grafts and replace them by volume stable soft tissue substitutes.
The lectures will provide you with a lot of practical information of all steps necessary to achieve an optical pleasing and healthy result.
