This comprehensive workshop will provide you with the most current and most practical information including all important decision making processes from tooth extraction to the final implant reconstruction. In includes the following important topics:

  • Replacing missing teeth in the esthetic zone with implants is a very demanding procedure. A successful and predicable implant therapy starts with a locally and systemically related risk assessment.
  • Strategies for handling of extraction sockets can either try to preserve hard and soft tissue or try to optimize hard and soft tissue by grafting procedures. The advantages and the limitations of different techniques will be discussed. Based on an overall comparison of the different techniques for hard and soft tissue preservation clinical strategies for various situations will be defined.
  • Timing of the implant placement is of great importance. It should be based on the morphological, dimensional and histological changes that follow tooth extraction and on common practice derived from clinical experience.
  • You will be provided by the next level of hard and soft tissue grafting procedures that will reduce the invasiveness, increase the predictability and that will reduce the overall stress in your clinical work
  • In addition, prosthetic decisions and timing sequences will be discussed. The presentation will provide you with information regarding the selection of abutment and crown materials. Decision criteria will be formulated in order to chose the right material and
