Different tissue biotypes react differently to surgical trauma. For this reason, we have adapted the surgical approach to the specific biotype (tissue thickness) of the patient and the location in the oral cavity.
Participants will learn flap designs and soft tissue surgeries developed by Dr. Steigmann.
PPF-Periosteal Pocket Flap
VBF-Versatil Buccal Flap
The technique used in high volume augmentation cases is based on tissue thickness. Thick biotypes can be managed in a traditional manner. A thin biotype requires new surgical approaches and specific instruments.
This course will describe the steps required to gain soft tissue for tension-free closure even in cases with reduced soft tissue thickness
