BASES OF PERIODONTAL AND PERI-IMPLANT PLASTIC SURGERY
PLACE OF THE COURSE
NO. OF PLACES
The concept of Periodontal Plastic Surgery was coined more than 30 years ago, encompassing the treatment of deformities of the gums, mucosa, as well as deficiencies in the volume and shape of the soft tissue around the teeth. Some concepts have been widely validated by scientific evidence, while others seem to be constantly evolving. By obtaining predictable protocols for the replacement of teeth by implants, the need to establish predictable treatments for peri-implant tissues arises.
Through our clinical experience and knowledge as a teacher and educator, together with my team, I intend that the participants carry out a detailed immersion in the world of periodontal and peri-implant plastic surgery with the aim of stimulating decision-making, enhancing surgical skills, understanding biology of wound healing and improve the results of treatments in this field, for the benefit of patients. Participants will develop surgical skills taking them to the limit, in different clinical situations of treatment of recessions in areas of aesthetic relevance, increase of the alveolar ridge, development of pontic areas and free gum grafts in functional areas.
During these two days, the necessary knowledge bases will also be developed for a better use of the courses: “Periodontal plastic surgery for the treatment of gingival recessions with tunnel techniques” and “Implants and soft tissues in the aesthetic zone”.
