Simplify Your Augmentation: The Impact of Socket Preservation & Cut’n’knot
August 14, 2019 | 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Two-part Hands-on Workshop presenting Ridge Preservation and Advanced Suturing Techniques
Part 1: Socket and ridge preservation are some of the easiest methods of hard-tissue preservation and augmentation in future implant sites. If the scientific knowledge of how extraction sockets heal is properly applied to our daily work, patients and dentists will benefit in several ways. During this presentation the following questions will be answered:
- When should we place immediate implants and when shouldn’t?
- Curettage of sockets – yes or no?
- How do we disinfect the extraction socket?
- Should a membrane be used or a graft only?
- • How can we close the socket after filling it?
Part 2: The key to predictable success in soft-tissue procedures is primary wound healing. Although the natural wound healing potential is high in the oral cavity, there are several ways to enhance soft-tissue healing. Can soft-tissue adaption be optimised? The perfect knot should be reproducible anywhere in the mouth, with any suture material and for any soft-tissue procedure, be it a crestal incision for implant placement or the positioning of a connective tissue graft for recession coverage.
