Understanding the growth of the facial bones is essential when planning an implant placement in a young individual. General estimates do not apply, but every case must be planned individually according to areas in the oral cavity, growth rotation of the mandible, occlusion and frontal contact as well as individual maturity. If not carefully planned, undesired esthetic outcomes may occur; some of them difficult to fix.

Various clinical indications such as coverage of gingival recession defects, gain of attached gingiva/attached mucosa, and thickening of peri-implant soft tissues alone or in combination with guided bone regeneration require frequently soft tissue augmentation. Today, autologous soft tissue grafts harvested from the palate represent the gold standard for soft tissue augmentation, but are associated with a number of shortcomings related to the increase in patient`s morbidity and anatomical limitations of the donor site. Increasing evidence indicates that acellular collagen matrices may represent a safe alternative to autologous soft tissue transplants in periodontology and implant dentistry. The presentation will provide new data on the adsorption and release of growth factors from different porcine-derived collagen matrices and on the migratory and proliferative properties of primary human oral fibroblasts (hOF) and periodontal ligament cells (hPDL) ) pointing to the potential clinical relevance of these materials in periodontology and implant dentistry.

Today regenerative surgical techniques are well-known and well documented, but sometimes are subject to complications that leave serious concerns from the outcome of the surgical procedure. In particular, for challenging bone defects which can be reconstructed with titanium-reinforced non-resorbable membranes, soft tissue management is, in fact, one of the key elements for undisturbed healing. During this webinar Dr. Ronda will share his knowledge about vertical and horizontal defect regeneration using titanium-reinforced non-resorbable membranes and bone graft particulates. Dr. Ronda will present clinical cases which demonstrate the feasibility and predictability of this procedure.
Demonstrate the feasibility and predictability of vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation techniques including flap design and flap assivation techniques, stabilization and anatomical adaptation of barrier membranes and use of titanium re-inforced membranes.

Whereas implants are supposed to be stationary stable, recent studies from the orthodontic field suggested a phenomenon termed implant migration. This phenomenon describes a change in position of implants as a reaction to applied forces. The goal of the interview is to elucidate whether (i) implants can migrate when orthodontic forces are applied, (ii) if the amount of displacement is associated with force magnitude, and (iii) the clinical implication.
