Dental Implant Institute Steigmann
Over the years we realized that specific skills in handling tissues are the priority in implant therapy. Adjusting soft tissue handling to the specific anatomy and biotype of each patient. For this reason the courses at Steigmann Institute focus to teach these specific, valid techniques during surgery and prosthetics in a unique comprehensive way. Hands-On on human like tissue helps incorporate up-to-date scientific based surgical approach in daily practice. Finding out there is a need for a more structured approach in learning about the soft tissue, we offer the whole range of soft tissue management for every location in the oral cavity:
1. Module 1 - For Bone Augmentation | 2. Module 2 - For the Aesthetic Zone | 3. Module 3 - Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development | 4. Module 4 - Complication and Full Arch Restoration |5. Module 5 – For Vertical Augmentation
Participants will learn in theory first how different tissue biotype react different to surgical trauma. For this reason we have adjusted the surgical approach to the biotype (tissue thickness) specific to each patient and location in the oral cavity.
The Hands on exercise will let the participants practice these specific techniques with specially designed instruments by Dr. Steigmann (micro-instruments & soft tissue splitters).
Learn Suturing methods with micro-sutures of different composition. Each participants will learn suturing adequate techniques with multifilament, monofilament and PFTE suturing materials.
Specially designed models and pig jaws also extra edited videos for every procedure.
The tissue thickness dictates the way it is manipulated for high volume augmentation.
The course will describe step by step the gain of soft tissue for tension free closure even in cases of reduced soft tissue thickness. By examples of failure teach how to avoid mistakes.
Live surgery can be observed while parallel on different screen the procedure is described by adjunct faculty. Ergonomic equipment and generous lecture and practice rooms enhance the mediation of
theoretical and practical educational contents and facilitate the learning of ultra-modern surgical techniques.
Participants discuss their own cases & complications.
Clinicians will learn how to build treatment plans based on individual circumstances. The participants will get to plan prosthetically and aesthetically the position of the implant on special designed models.
Module 1: Soft Tissue Management for Bone Augmentation
Soft tissue tension free closure – step by step
Tension free flap adaptation – multiple options
Suturing techniques with and against tension
Adequate soft tissue manipulation for thin and thick biotype
Improve soft tissue thickness
Gain soft tissue elasticity
Create keratinized gingiva
The tissue thickness dictates the way it is manipulated for high volume augmentation. Thick biotype can be managed in a classical manner. On the other side thin biotype needs new surgical approaches with specific instruments. The course will describe step by step the gain of soft tissue for tension free closure even in cases of reduced soft tissue thickness.
