Over the last two decades recession coverage and dealing with soft tissue deficiencies has been at the forefront of periodontology and implantology.
Until now the connective tissue graft has shown promise as being the golden standard for attachment gain, percentage of root coverage and long-term outcomes.
However, a secondary surgical site and additional morbidity may deter patients who are reluctant to undergo such a procedure and leave them untreated.
Therefore, efforts are being made to replace the CTG with allogeneic or xenogeneic collagen matrices that will achieve similar outcomes.
Recent review articles have shown that these materials could well be a viable alternative to the connective tissue graft in treating recessions.
This webinar will review recent advances in utilizing these materials as alternatives to connective tissue grafts and in addition will show a modified technique for recession coverage using a new innovative collagen scaffold.
1. Methods for recession coverage
2. Presenting new techniques using a collagen scaffold that has shown promise in soft tissue enhancement and thickening around implants and for recession coverage in teeth
3. Discussing healing differences between OSSIX® Volumax collagen scaffold and other xenogeneic materials and autogenous tissue.
Duration: 90 minutes including 15 minutes of Q&A.
