Workshop 1: 9:00 - 15:00 Istvan Urban (HU) - Lateral Bone Augmentation and Soft-Tissue Reconstruction Observer Seats Only
Workshop 2: 9:00 - 15:00 Ronald Jung (CH) - Modern Hard and Soft-Tissue Management Before and During Implant Placement
Hands-on parts – techniques presented:
Model: pig jaw
Workshop 3: 9:00 - 15:00 Matteo Chiapasco (IT) - Vertical Augmentation of a Major Bony Defect Using a Customisable Ti-Mesh
Different reconstructive procedures are nowadays available to allow for implant placement in severely atrophic partially or totally edentulous ridges, such as GBR with particulate grafts with resorbable or non-resorbable membranes or autogenous bone block grafts. These procedures are both reliable, but sometimes time-consuming and very technically demanding in terms of adaptation and fixation of the grafts, both particulate or in blocks.
The production of these Ti-Meshes is in fact performed on personalized 3-D models obtained by CBCTs of the atrophic area of each patient, allowing an extreme precision and simplification of the adaptation of the mesh to the defect to be reconstructed.
The aim of this workshop is to teach all participants how to perform all of the surgical steps of the reconstructive procedure of partially edentulous jaws with customized Ti-Meshes with the aid of both didactic (including detailed slides & procedural videos) and hands-on (using both animal (pig jaw) and synthetic models) sessions.
1. How to optimize pre-operative planning of a clinical case in need of reconstruction of an atrophic edentulous ridge with a customized Ti-Mesh;
Workshop 4: 9:00 - 15:00 Rino Burkhardt (CH) - Mechanosensitive Surgery in the Field of Periodontal & Peri-implant Management of the Oral Mucosa
New insights into structural anatomy of the oral mucosa and the biological processes support the hypothesis that control of flap tension is crucial for optimal wound healing. On the other side, there is evidence in the literature that clinicians cannot control flap tension without training of their psychomotor and visual-spatial skills, especially when tensions are low.
It is the goal of the present hands-on course to evaluate the variability of applied flap tensions of the individual trainee and to present bench models how to practice the control of flap tension. Additionally, based on clinical situations, we will show the participants how biomaterials can help to increase wound stability and influence the tensions applied on wound margins.
