Socket Grafting for Implant and Prosthetic Success

Time: 16:30 – 18:00

Patients with thin phenotype has been reported to suffer with more than 50% bone loss following teeth extraction. Not only bone loss can complicate future implant placement but can also lead to poor prosthetic design for pontics in implants prosthodontics and conventional bridges. Socket grafting can be a very predictable minor operation when it is done properly, following correct biological principles and can convert complex implant cases into predictable and straightforward cases as well as can help us to design our future prosthesis in a hygienic and aesthetic design. This workshop will present set by step how to perform a successful socket grafting and will cover various indications when socket grafting is highly recommended.

Skills to be covered during the workshop:

– Harvesting free gingival graft vs correct management of processed membranes
– Use of xenograft porcine dermis soft tissue graft (mucoderm®)
– Socket grafting and bone biomaterial management skills
– Advanced suturing skills for socket grafting techniques
