Soft Tissue Grafting is organized by Perio Institute and will be held on Jun 26, 2020 at UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry, San Antonio, Texas, United States of America.This Course has been approved for a maximum of 7 CE hours. Description: Using evidence-based support from the current literature, discover how soft tissue grafting is certain to enhance your restorative results. Perio Institute prepares you to deal with: • Recession around a recently placed crown in the esthetic zone – What is the solution? Could it have been prevented? We believe so. • Exposed roots that are esthetically undesirable, or sensitive – Can the root be predictably covered with gingiva rather than an unsightly Class V restoration? In this one-day workshop, we illustrated the best methods to solve those everyday problems and enhance your restorative results. Our instruction will also give you peace of mind that the gingiva stays over your newly placed esthetic crown margins. You will see how to create predictable soft tissue augmentation, which in turn creates a predictable base for your restorative success. Experience an in-depth look at predictable applications for both free gingival and connective tissue grafts. The differences are distinct, and those differences will be thoroughly explained. You will also be given the opportunity to hone your skills and to practice these procedures on pig jaws. This course includes two surgical hands-on exercises, multiple case illustrations, and two surgical video demonstrations of the soft tissue grafting procedures. Learning objectives: • Learn diagnostic criteria for each graft • See how Connective Tissue Grafts offer opportunities to cover exposed roots • See how Free Gingival Grafts will predictably stop or prevent recession • Understand indications and limitations for each graft • Step-by-step technique from harvesting to suturing both grafts on pig jaws • Step-by-step use of specialized instruments Indications for FGG or CTG would include: • Multiple teeth with root exposure • Crowns in the esthetic zone with thin tissue that might recede • Progressive recession • Esthetic or sensitivity concerns from exposed roots • Multiple teeth with root exposure in combination with minimal attached gingiva • Minimal attached gingiva around implants
