Teeth in the jaw bone insure the capacity of the lateral ridge. After tooth loss, however, the ridge begins a resorption process that continues through the patient’s life. Furthermore, we know today that dental implants do not stop the resorption process. Therefore, maintaining the lateral ridge’s girth is of great importance during the dental implantation procedure. The proper thickness could prevent gum recession around the implant, reduce peri-implantitis and ensure an improved prognosis.
The course will discuss various techniques for thickening the ridge while reviewing the benefits and layouts of each technique. Doctors will receive personal training with practical experience and will be able to view procedures live from the operation room.
Date of the course: 23-24/3/2017
