The health of peri-implant tissues plays an important role in the long-term outcome of treatments with dental implants, both aesthetically and functionally. The absence of keratinized gingiva (KG) can be a risk factor for the development of gingival recession or periimplantitis.
Being located at the confluence between hard and soft tissues, but also benefiting from the presence of prosthetic work, THE TRANSITION ZONE is probably the biggest challenge in implantology, being for the doctor the area that will ensure the stability of peri-implant tissues in the long term and for the patient, the aesthetic standard of treatment success.
In the transition zone, every little detail counts, from atraumatic extraction, to the materials and shape of the prosthetic parts. All these details will be discussed during the course, both theoretically and exemplified by clinical cases.
Techniques for preserving the transition area will be detailed, including the SOCKET SHIELD technique, as well as various BONE and GINGIVAL AUGMENTATION techniques (FGG, SNAKE Technique), in the conditions of ATRAUMATIC EXTRACTION AND IMMEDIATE IMPLANT PLACEMENT.
The course will guide us the steps from the beginning to the end of the treatment, both surgical and prosthetic, so that we can turn a difficult case into a real success, both functionally and aesthetically, and the result is a safe and stable in the long run.
