What you can expect

Success in restorative and implant dentistry is highly dependent on soft tissue health. This course
will first review the determinants that are necessary to establish mucogingival health and stability. This will be followed by a review of the diagnosis, treatment planning, and decision-making process for managing different soft
tissue defects around implants.

 A focus will then be made on the different techniques involved in soft tissue harvest and grafting around implants. This will be done didactically first followed by hands-on exercises to implement these techniques.

Participants who complete this course should be able to diagnose, plan and treat a variety of mucogingival deficiency cases.
