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.

Day 1

  • Anatomical implications for vertical augmentation
  • Grafting materials
  • Soft tissue management for vertical augmentation In the mandible – thick biotype vs. thin biotype
  • Buccal flap management &lingual flap manipulation For small and high volume augmentation
  • Soft tissue management for vertical augmentation In the posterior maxilla
  • Soft tissue management for vertical augmentation aesthetic zone
  • Grafting materials for the maxilla
  • Incision Flap design for Vertical augmentation in the aesthetic zone
  • Suturing techniques for vertical augmentation dependent on the location

Day 2

Dear Marius, it is now some four months since I attended your course in Germany and would like to give you some feedback from a Periodontists viewpoint. I have been doing implants for about 20 years and have been all over the world on different courses specializing in soft tissue management, aesthetics and augmentation procedures for implants. This is the first time that I have learned procedures that have greatly improved my predictability in implant dentistry. The procedures that you have pio- neered are very different from anything that I have seen in the literature or in lectures I have attended or other augmentation courses. Also I learned a great deal from the restorative perspective and have passed this on to my referring dentists.

I have been pursuing implantology intensively for almost 15 years, I have attended numerous international confe- rences and seminars and, then, in only three days I come to understand how simple some things are. Dr. Steig- mann’s systematic reasoning and perfectly designed protocol provides an approach to implantology procedu- re that enables us to expand the procedure at any given situation depending on the circumstances. And what’s most important, I no longer have to think about which type of incision to apply in GBR, because it’s always the same protocol with the same instruments for different situations.
