When planning implant dentistry, goals include creating healthy, esthetics and long lasting surrounding hard and soft tissues. Many available graft materials may help to develop more tissue volume, but with the risk of leaving a large amount of non-vital material embedded in the tissues. This webinar explores options for using alternative materials in the development of 4-, 3- and 2-walled defects prior to implant placement. This course aims to provide an alternative approach to the development of hard and soft tissues for the long term stability of delayed and immediately placed implants.
At the completion of this program, viewers will have a working knowledge of:
• Limits in bone grafting including graft failure
• New options for site development and defect repair
• Differences in managing newer materials
• Differences on how different graft materials heal
