Further details about this event

2 day course by Dr Thomas Hanser, Clinic partners with Prof Fouad Khoury at Clinic Schloss Schellenstein in Germany, one of the most well known clinics in the field of Implantology and Augmentation.

Lecture and hands-on training covering advanced autogenous bone grafting procedures and management of soft tissue around dental implants.
Biological and clinical factors for long term stability and aesthetics of bone and soft tissue in Dental Implantology.

Hands-on training on sheep jaws.

Learn the biological approach, also known as the Khoury technique, to reconstructive surgery that makes the most of the gold standard of materials: autogenous bone. Practice and learn predictable bone block harvesting, preparation and optimisation of the bone, and horizontal & vertical bone augmentation techniques and immediately implement these into your practice.

Aesthetic, functional and protective aspects of soft tissue management will be discussed in context of all stages of implant therapy: tooth extraction, implant placement, bone grafting, second stage surgery and prosthetic rehabilitation to improve the soft tissue quality and quantity.

Aims & Objectives

- Learn safe techniques of extracting bone blocks from the molar area.
- Understand the methods of collection, preparation and optimisation of autologous grafts.
- Familiarise yourself with the principles of the Khoury technique
- Get a better understanding of predictable, long-term and stable horizontal and vertical bone block augmentation.
- Explore innovative techniques for closing soft tissues at the site of augmentation in order to avoid postoperative complications.
- Learn how various flap designs and soft tissue augmentation techniques can help to get appropriate soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions.

Event Content

DAY 1.

- biological and clinical factors that contribute to successful bone transplant healing in horizontal and vertical alveolar reconstructions
- clinical management and understanding of biological factors that influence aesthetic and long-term hard and soft tissue stability – demonstration via clinical cases and numerous videos

Hands-on training on sheep jaws:
- safe retro-molar bone block harvesting
- successful bone graft stabilisation
- predictable, long term results in horizontal and vertical bone augmentation
- successful sinus lifting in case of severe alveolar atrophy

DAY 2.

The participants will practice on sheep jaws:

I. Aesthetic soft tissue management:
- soft tissue graft harvesting and augmentation techniques
- socket preservation
- free and pedicle sub-epithelial connective tissue grafting to contour missing
volume in the aesthetic zone
- tunneling technique
- handling gingival recession
- flap designs and different techniques for second stage sur-gery
- papilla reconstruction
- analysing and correction of implant failures

II. Functional soft tissue management:
- creating fixed and keratinised peri-implant soft tissue
- vestibuloplasty
- free gingival graft
- stabilising peri-implant soft tissue techniques

III. Protective soft tissue management:
- innovative techniques and flap designs for soft tissue closure to avoid postoperative complications and exposure of the grafted bone
- tension free wound closure
- tunneling technique
- suture techniques

Resulting Qualification

12 hours of Verifiable CPD
