Soft- and hard tissue reconstructions around natural teeth and dental implants

Soft and hard tissue deficiencies represent common drawbacks in periodontology and implant dentistry. Three-dimensional loss of soft and hard tissues may result in conditions with impaired function, aesthetics and cleansibility. The surgical reconstruction of such anomalies may present challenges for clinicians. To avoid, reduce or reconstruct any unfavorable deformations, several surgical techniques and graft types may be applied to compensate for horizontal- and vertical bone loss, soft tissue volume deficiencies, lack of keratinized tissues and to reconstruct the distorted vestibule following inflammatory processes or hard tissue augmentations. The success of such corrections is of high importance, especially when harmonious periimplant mucosa similar to the gingival architecture of adjacent teeth is necessary for long term tissue stability and aesthetics around dental implants. The event will focus on application of hard and soft tissue grafting biomaterials as well as surgical concepts feasible to recreate lost hard- and soft tissues around natural teeth and dental implants.
