Newcastle Study Club - 11 May 2017

GBR in the New Millennium, Biology Meets Function and Esthetics

Presented by: Roberto Rossi
Exhibitor: Instradent, Trycare, Megagen
Date: 11 May 2017
Time: 1900 Refreshments 1930 Lecture
Location: Novotel Newcastle Airport, Ponteland Road, Kenton, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE3 3HZ

GBR has been used in the dental field in the past twenty five years to solve bony and soft tissue problems. This presentation will show how to address ridge and soft tissue defects starting from the single tooth replacement moving on to multiple teeth and in the end discussing complex cases requiring extensive bony and soft tissue reconstructions.

The evolution of surgical techniques and biomaterials will be the hot topic of the presentation showing how progress has improved the life of both clinicians and patients.
