Synergy course

The synergy courses offer comprehensive knowledge in both theory and practice, covering a specific theme from inception to completion. In the context of soft tissue management, the curriculum encompasses a wide spectrum, ranging from extraction therapy until implant surgery, advanced bone grafting procedures and prosthetic rehabilitation onto detailed aspects of soft tissue manipulation. These include incision techniques, flap design, tissue manipulation, and suture practices. The course addresses problem-solving strategies and extends to prosthetic rehabilitation, with a specific focus on either the aesthetic or non-aesthetic zone.

Modules 1-5 provide participants with a systematic learning journey, starting from fundamental principles of surgery in soft tissue management and progressing to advanced techniques within the aesthetic zone, prosthetic therapy, complicated vertical augmentation and complication resolution. The knowledge imparted in each module builds upon the foundation established in preceding modules. Additionally, each module incorporates a comprehensive hands-on session to reinforce theoretical understanding with practical experience.

Upcoming events

Over the years we realized that specific skills in handling tissues are the priority in implant therapy. Adjusting soft tissue handling to the specific anatomy and biotype of each patient. For this reason the courses at Steigmann Institute focus to teach these specific, valid techniques during surgery and prosthetics in a unique comprehensive way

Synergy course

The aim of a synergy course is to ensure that participants have a more comprehensive understanding of the topic being taught and can apply it in their practice. By learning how to integrate different techniques and procedures to provide better outcomes and a higher level of care to their patients. With a focus on collaboration and integration, these courses are paving the way for a more comprehensive approach to dental education. On some occasions, the synergy courses may involve guest speakers.

Philosophy & Modules

Over the years we realized that specific skills in handling tissues are the priority in implant therapy. Adjusting soft tissue handling to the specific anatomy and biotype of each patient. For this reason the courses at Steigmann Institute focus to teach these specific, valid techniques during surgery and prosthetics in a unique comprehensive way

Module 1

Soft Tissue Management for Bone Augmentation

Different tissue biotype react different to surgical trauma. For this reason we have adjusted the surgical approach to the biotype (tissue thickness) specific to each patient and location in the oral cavity.

Module 2

Soft Tissue Management for the Aesthetic Zone

The achievement of optimal aesthetics around anterior dental implants has been a major challenge for many clinicians. The key to an aesthetically pleasing appearance lies in the clinician’s ability to manage properly the soft tissue profile around dental implants.

Module 3

Soft Tissue Management – Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development

The main purpose of this course is to explain, demonstrate and teach soft tissue development around implants in fixed single and multiple implant placement.

Module 4

Soft tissue complication and full arch restoration

The main purpose of this course is to explain, demonstrate and teach soft tissue complication and full arch restoration.

Module 5

Soft Tissue Management for Vertical Augmentation

Vertical bone loss represents a major surgical challenge in the implant treatment of the posterior mandible, due to anatomical factors and technical difficulties. For this reason special techniques are necessary for the lingual, buccal and palatal flap management. A proper management of the soft tissues is a crucial point for the success in of this kind of regenerative procedure.
