ENHANCING YOUR RESTORATIVE RESULTS WITH SOFT TISSUE GRAFTING
Learn evidence-based solutions for the types of soft tissue challenges that you face on a daily basis, such as how to cover those exposed roots and predictably stop, or prevent, recession. In this course, methods are illustrated to solve those problems and enhance your restorative results, by using both Free Gingival and Connective Tissue Grafts. Gain peace of mind knowing the gingiva stays in place at the margins of newly placed esthetic crowns.
PART 2 - April 22
CREATING PREDICTABLE RESTORATIVE RESULTS WITH CROWN LENGTHENING SURGERY
Frustrated by a cusp fractured below the gingiva, or prepping too far sub-gingival? This combined lecture and workshop program will offer some solutions to these every day dental problems. This program will provide valuable information to not just solve those problems, but to also directly enhance your restorative results. Participants will experience an in-depth look at the concepts and practical applications for both Posterior and Anterior Crown Lengthening.
