Lecture: Current approaches to the Treatment of Peri-implantitis

Periimplantitis has become a frequent chronic inflammatory condition of the tissues around osseointegrated implants and in current clinical practice different modalities of treatment have been proposed and evaluated. This lecture will present the new classification and case definition of periimplantits as well as the evidence based modalities of treatment. These therapies will mainly be surgical interventions, either resective or regenerative depending on the anatomy of the peri-implant bone lesion. Representative cases will be presented and clinical recommendations will be given

Hands on Workshop: Soft tissue plastic techniques

This workshop is aimed to acquire surgical skills in soft tissue plastic techniques. Two surgical indications will be covered, soft tissue augmentation techniques for augmenting the width of keratinised tissue and root coverage techniques the treatment of localized gingival/mucosal recessions. As introduction the objectives and detailed description of these techniques will be reviewed and illustrative cases will be presented. Then the workshop participants will perform these surgical techniques step by step on a pig mandible model. Both autografts (connective tissue grafts) and soft tissue substitutes (collagen matrixes) will be used in both surgical indications.
