VISTA: An Approach for Soft Tissue and Bone Augmentation of Teeth and Implants (LECTURE & HANDS-ON)

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

SYNOPSIS:

Bone has long been considered the critical tissue for support and long-term health of teeth and implant. Periodontal and peri-implant soft tissues have frequently been regarded to be important for esthetics. However, recent evidence has demonstrated the significance of the quantity and quality of periodontal and peri-implant mucosa for the long-term health of periodontal and peri-implant tissues.

The “vestibular incision subperiosteal tunnel access” (VISTA) is particularly well-suited technique for periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue and bone augmentation. The comprehensive hands-on cadaver workshop will provide participants with practical experience with the complete protocol for periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue and bone augmentation.

UPON COMPLETION PARTICIPANTS WILL KNOW:

The significance of periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue biotype and keratinized mucosa.
Various techniques for peri-implant soft tissue augmentation, including advantages and disadvantages of each: free gingival graft, connective tissue graft, Vascularized Inter-Positional (VIP) pedicle graft, Coronally Advanced Flap (CAF), Intra-sulcular tunneling, VISTA.
Various graft material: Autogenous donor tissue (epithelialized graft, Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft (Palatal donor sites, Tuberosity), Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM), Native xenogenic Collagen Matrix (N-XCM), Form-stable XCM, Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF).
The steps-by-step protocol required for autogenous connective tissue harvesting from different sites for periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue augmentation using VISTA.
Application of VISTA for GTR, GBR and pontic site contour development
