Why do we need GBR in implant dentistry: contemporary approach & Socket grafting for improved prosthodontics and implants restoration
in the framework of the BULMEDICA Congress
09:00-11:30 Lecture: Why do we need GBR in implant dentistry: contemporary approach
Guided bone regeneration (GBR) can be a predictable procedure aiming to compensate for the bone loss which has taken place following teeth removal. However, specific biology-based concepts have to be fully respected to achieve successful results with GBR such as using a well-stabilized slowly resorbing collagen membrane, to offer a well-isolated space underneath. This lecture will discuss contemporary approaches to guide you to improve your GBR results. The lecture will also discuss various indications for guided bone regeneration and clinical scenarios when GBR will not be suitable, and a staged bone augmentation approach will be required instead.
13:30-16:00 Hands-on: Socket grafting for improved prosthodontics and implants restoration
Patients with thin phenotype have 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.
