Soft tissue augmentation surgery is an integral part of implant therapy, especially around implants in the esthetic zone. Up to date, autogenous subepithelial connective tissue grafts are considered to be the gold standard to augment soft tissue volume. A recently developed volume stable collagen matrix may be used as an alternative to the autogenous tissue in order to eliminate complications during the harvesting procedure.
In this hands-on workshop both techniques – the use of subepithelial connective tissue graft as well as the collagen matrix – are trained using a pig model.
