  • Treatment planning for hard and soft tissue grafting in vertical ridge augmentation
  • Vertical ridge augmentation surgical techniques
  • Clinical indications and patient selection for successful vertical ridge augmentation
  • Reconstruction of deficient alveolar ridges and implant placement in either a simultaneous or staged approach
  • Buccal and lingual soft tissue release techniques for flap advancement and primary closure in alveolar ridge augmentation procedures
  • Double-layer suturing technique for obtaining and maintaining primary closure in alveolar ridge augmentation procedures
  • Membrane and mesh fixation materials and techniques in GBR, including lingual fixation
  • Autogenous bone harvesting – regions and techniques
  • Strategies for preventing and treating complications in GBR procedures for alveolar ridge augmentation
  • Soft tissue grafting techniques following alveolar ridge augmentation
  • Maxillary Arch Reconstruction: Partial and Complete Edentulous
  • Minimally invasive sinus elevation techniques
  • Contiguous sinus floor elevation & osteotome technique
  • Anatomical relationship between bone and soft tissues surrounding implants and how it affects aesthetics
  • Surgical procedures to improve the appearance of soft tissues around healthy implants
  • Implant restorations and their influence on soft tissue around implants
  • Treatment planning for advanced loss of hard and soft tissues around implants (i.e. exposed threads or failing implants)
  • Review of available evidence of bone loss and efficacy of socket preservation following tooth extraction
  • Results from a new study comparing socket grafting techniques with PTFE, PTFE with overbuilding, and PTFE plus collagen
  • Histological comparison of various graft materials in socket preservation

Symposium Highlights The symposium will feature optional hands-on workshops and presentations by world-renowned speakers. The three in-depth limited-attendance hands-on workshops are offered Thursday, April 3. Topics include: advanced hard and soft tissue regenerative techniques in implant therapy with Dr. Istvan Urban, sinus elevation and grafting with Dr. Sascha Jovanovic, and clinical guidelines and surgical techniques for implant site development with Dr. Hom-Lay Wang.

The Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch is an ideal location due to Scottdale’s enjoyable spring weather and breathtaking views. Explore the endless wonders of the 27-acre property set amidst the majestic McDowell Mountains. Enjoy breathtaking vistas blended with intriguing Native American culture and pampering amenities featuring championship golf, Spa Avania, a 2.5 acre water playground, tennis, or Camp Hyatt Kachina. Or attendees can find their own opportunity for adventure just minutes from the resort.

Learning Objectives

  • Improve comprehensive treatment planning skills with emphasis on achieving natural esthetics
  • Integrate the latest research technologies, materials and techniques into the treatment planning process
  • Critically evaluate the available evidence relative to various grafting and augmentation techniques
