SOFT TISSUE MANAGEMENT HANDS-ON TRAINING

SOFT TISSUE MANAGEMENT HANDS-ON TRAINING

$2,000.00Price

Soft tissue diagnosis and treatment planning are often missed during a patient’s general examination. Mucogingival problems can cause various functional and esthetic clinical problems for patients around teeth and implants. This can be solved or prevented by proper diagnosis, planning, and treatment. In this hands-on workshop, participants will use pig jaw models to perform conventional free gingival grafts as well as subepithelial connective tissue grafts for root coverage. Additionally, participants will practice applying PRF/CGF into their practice and tissue grafting procedures.
