Soft Tissue Plastic Techniques

Perth, WA
Monday 31 August 2020
Prof Mariano Sanz

This workshop is aimed at acquiring surgical skills in soft tissue plastic techniques.

Two main surgical indications will be covered: soft tissue augmentation techniques for increasing the width of keratinised tissue, and root coverage techniques for the treatment of localised gingival/mucosal recessions.

As an introduction, the objectives and detailed description of these techniques will be reviewed and illustrative cases will be presented. Workshop participants will then perform these surgical techniques step-by-step on a pig mandible. Both autografts (connective tissue grafts) and soft tissue substitutes (collagen matrices) may be used in both surgical indications.

This course is designed for practitioners with an interest in expanding their treatment options for soft tissue augmentation
