Prof. Mariano Sanz | Spain
Sufficient soft tissue volume and keratinized tissue around implants are key for implant success. A clinical update on gold standards and alternatives.
A less invasive technique for greater success
Dr. Yoon Euy Hong | South Korea
Different techniques and biomaterials can be used for recession coverage. When is the coronally advanced flap beneficial, when a tunneling approach?
Using a 3-D collagen matrix for vestibuloplasty
Dr. Christian Schmitt | Germany
No painful graft harvest and very good color and texture match surrounding tissue - these are major advantages when performing a vestibuloplasty with Geistlich Mucograft®. Now there is long-term data over five years.
Taking the patient’s view into account
Dr. Michael McGuire | United States
Objective treatment outcomes are measurable and comparable. However, it is also worth taking the patient’s subjective measures into account. This is the goal of “patient-reported outcomes.”
Ass. Prof. Stefan Fickl | Germany
Should the extraction socket be sealed with a soft-tissue punch graft or with a collagen matrix? The matrix has some advantages over the autologous punch.
Options post tooth extraction
Prof. Ronald E. Jung | Switzerland
Immediate implantation, spontaneous healing or Ridge Preservation – these are the available options after a tooth has been extracted. Which option is the best when?
Future regenerative dentistry
Prof. Alan Herford | United States
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) is a highly multidisciplinary field. Integrative approaches are developed to overcome today's limitations in augmentation procedures.
The sandwich osteoplasty
Prof. Bilal Al-Nawas | Germany
The sandwich technique facilitates soft-tissue management and allows experienced surgeons to achieve good results in patients with greater vertical bone deficiencies.
The strip technique
Prof. Istvan Urban | Hungary
Do large defects need large transplants? Not always. A new technique cleverly merges autologous tissue and collagen matrix. An interview with Prof. Istvan Urban.
