Goal: To acquire knowledge and skill in the management of Soft Tissues in Implantology
| 2 November, 2017

Up until recently, the alveolar bone was considered the key to successful implantology treatments. Today, we know that "The Bone gives the Tone but the Tissue is the Issue: a unique a fragile connection between the implant and the soft tissue is a weak spot, a sort of Achilles’ heel. Therefore, changing the structure of the soft tissue for a more resistant one (by adding collagen fibers and enriching the connective tissue) could improve the implants’ prognoses and enhance the aesthetic result.

The course will showcase several methods to achieve stable connective tissues and incorporate them in the implant zone while discussing their advantages and logistics. Doctors will receive personal training with practical experience and will be able to view procedures live from the operation room.
