This unique course will provide the theoretical background and practical skills for the prevention and and management of peri-implant disease. Live surgeries will cover different surgical peri–implantitis treatment concepts, including reconstructive, resective, and combined surgical therapies, and the decisive factors in determining which surgical technique is most appropriate in different peri-implantitis cases. The hands-on will focus on specific flap designs and suturing techniques for various surgical approaches at peri-implantitis sites, surgical steps and materials for reconstructive surgical therapy, soft tissue volume grafting as part of resective, reconstructive and combined procedures in the esthetic zone, and surgical techniques and materials to establish keratinized tissue.
- Acquisition of extensive theoretical background in the prevention and management of peri-implant disease.
- Understanding of different surgical peri–implantitis treatment concepts.
- Management of various surgical techniques in soft tissue volume grafting and esstablishment of keratinized tissue.
