We are happy to announce that following the great success of our first two events, we are organizing the 3rd Urban International Hard and Soft Tissue Regeneration Symposium in Budapest, Hungary, on 29-30th October 2021. The event takes place at the Budapest Congress Center.

The pandemic imposed a halt on traveling and conferences worldwide. Yet, with the conclusions drawn and the precautions we take, we are confident that we can organize our next event in the safest environment in Budapest. We all are craving for meeting each other and share fresh scientific knowledge we learned. Since 2017 we grew to a society, too and we would be pleased to welcome you again.

In 2017 we had the honor to receive 560 participants from 45 countries, in 2019 the number of participants had increased to 600 arriving from 44 countries worldwide.

By attending this Symposium participants will have a unique opportunity to explore the most recent scientific findings in the field of hard and soft tissue regeneration and refine their attitude for solving problems.

Our line-up of speakers represents an elite group of doctors and academics who will share their profound knowledge and experience, and address questions from the audience. We are convinced that they will, yet again provide the highest level of scientific content.

The event is a great opportunity to exchange views and best practices with dental professionals attending from all around the world. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore our exhibitors’ latest products and services.

The Symposium will be held on 29-30th October 2021. On the days before and after the event, i.e., 28th and 31st October, the participants will have the opportunity to participate in one or more of several high-end hands-on workshops providing a more in-depth experience to a limited number of attendees. The workshops in 2017, were attended by over 160, and in 2019 the number of participants at the workshops had reached 224 and were deemed a great success. We are convinced that this year they will be equally auspicious.

Welcome & Introduction
Perspectives on Vertical and Horizontal Augmentation Dr. Istvan Urban
The average size of the vertical defect is growing and the age of the patients are decreasing. These extreme vertical defects were not investigated and documented in clinical studies. Can the old principles be applied to these defects? Is it possible to treat these defects technically and can biology reach up to the expected heights? What will be the outcome after loading? What happens to the Sausage Technique TM cases after 15 years? What has been changed of the technique in the last decade? This presentation will update the clinician about techniques that can treat these types of defects. New research related to these defects will be revealed. Long-term clinical outcomes of vertical and horizontal augmentation will be presented.
Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) for the treatment of type II and III sockets in complex cases Dr. José Carlos da Rosa
The Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) is a surgical and prosthetic powerful technique established to broaden indications for immediate loading on individual compromised teeth. It is a technique that allows tissue losses with varied extensions in compromised sockets to be reconstructed in the same surgical session of implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and making esthetic aspects predictable. The main focus of the lecture is to present the IDR protocol, which advocates minimally invasive surgery and flapless procedure. Challenging clinical cases in anterior zone in combination with severe bone loss and soft tissue damage will be discussed, and its biological response. This is a new perspective to manage compromised sockets in a simplest and reproducible way.
The Sinus Course and Workshop. Dr. Jaime Lozada
The Maxillary Sinus Grafting Procedure is one of the most widely reported surgical procedures in advanced implant dentistry. The treatment techniques have evolved over the years as well as the utilization of graft materials for the modified sinus cavity. Along with all of those publications and changes with technique, a number of complications can also occur during and after the surgical treatment. This presentation will focus on the diagnosis, technique selection and execution as well as the management of complications while treating patients with maxillary sinus graft procedures
Coffee Break at Venue
Bone and soft tissue augmentations in the esthetic area: a technique-sensitive procedure. Dr. Ueli Grunder
Bone and soft tissue augmentation are necessary to compensate for, or prevent tissue deficits around implants placed in the esthetic region. Lack of bone can either make the placement of implants impossible or it is a limiting factor for an optimal esthetic result. Guided Bone Regeneration is a proven technique for such bone augmentation. When used correctly and with the right materials, the desired result can be achieved with good long-term results. However, the GBR technique is very technique-sensitive. Mistakes which prevent success can be made starting with the incision technique over the membrane adaptation to tension free flap adaptation. But we learned that bone augmentation alone doesn’t give us the perfect tissue volume. Soft tissue augmentation appears to be of enormous importance, particularly for long term success. Depending on the initial situation, various techniques are successful if they are applied correctly. This presentation will discuss the goals of the GBR and soft tissue augmentation techniques, especially in the aesthetic field, as well as which steps in the surgical phase are really essential for success.

Computer guided bone harvesting for vertical bone augmentation Dr. Luca De Stavola
Autogenous bone plays fundamental role in supporting new bone formation in critical size defect. Nevertheless, intra-oral bone block harvesting may result a challenging and stressful step for many Clinicians. Digital techniques changed completely the complexity of the free hand approach, indeed, pre-evaluation of the defect anatomy and, consequently, bone block morphology needed to graft the defect is now possible. A computer guided surgery for bone block harvesting helps the Surgeon to harvest the required dimension and shape of the bone block in a safe and stress free approach. The lecture will analyze the planning phase and the surgical steps to manage vertical bone deficiency in the posterior as well as esthetic areas.
Coffee Break at Venue
Soft tissue autografts from the hard palate – the gold standard for oral soft tissue reconstruction in the spotlight Dr. Otto Zuhr
The application of soft tissue autografts has characterized the last 50 years of clinical periodontology, and till today – more than ever – a variety of soft tissue grafting interventions is carried out with two different targets being pursued: increasing the width of keratinized mucosa and increasing soft tissue volume. To reduce pain, invasiveness and side effects originating from the donor site at the hard palate, the search for soft tissue substitute materials has become an important field of research and enormous effort has been taken by scientists and clinicians to develop reliable alternatives. However, a solid body of evidence points out, that independent of the clinical indication and independent of the soft tissue substitute material investigated, epithelialized as well as subepithelial connective tissue grafts must be considered as the gold standard materials for oral soft tissue reconstruction to the present day. Against this background, it must be expected, that more transparency and understanding for the predictably successful application of soft tissue autografts would substantially influence future research and further progress with regard to possible substitute materials will to some extent be dependent on whether or not some fundamental landmark questions can be answered like for instance: what is the true nature of the positive connective tissue graft effect in gingival recession therapy? does it make a difference for the patients, where and how soft tissue autografts are harvested at the hard palate? can varying tissue compositions possibly impact the clinical characteristics of different autografts with regard to re-vascularization, epithelial differentiation and volume stability? The present presentation will not be able to answer all the aforementioned questions. By presenting available research data and associated clinical observations it can contribute though to a better understanding of the hurdles to take in search for biomaterials that aim to substitute the use of autologous soft tissue grafts in the near future.
Lunch at Venue
Management of peri-implantitis Prof. Dr. Frank Schwarz, Dr. med. dent. Ausra Ramanauskaite
Peri-implantitis is a plaque-associated pathological condition characterized by the mucosal inflammation along with progressive loss of supporting bone. Substantial evidence suggests that non-surgical therapy is of limited efficacy in arresting further bone loss, thus indicating the necessity of surgical intervention in the majority of patients diagnosed with peri-implantitis. Achieving optimal treatment results in diverse clinical situations requires proper knowledge of indications and surgical performance of different surgical treatment modalities. This lecture will cover different surgical peri–implantitis treatment concepts, including reconstructive, resective, and combined surgical therapies, and the decisive factors in determining which surgical technique is most appropriate in different peri-implantitis cases. Important aspects of soft-tissue management and rationale for soft-tissue volume grafting following surgical peri-implantitis treatment, as well as the prognostic factors associated with treatment outcomes will be further discussed.
Coffee Break at Venue
Soft tissue augmentation around implants: How far we can go? Prof. Dr. Giovanni Zucchelli
Soft tissue augmentation procedures have been demonstrated to be critical for the achievement of the esthetic success of implant therapy. In most of challenging cases soft tissue surgery is performed after bone augmentation to “repair” soft tissue defects caused by or residual after bone surgery. In the presentation the possibility and limits to perform soft tissue augmentation before implant therapy with or without bone reconstruction will be analyzed and described.

Dr. José Carlos da Rosa

Brazil, São Leopoldo

Dr. José Carlos Martins da Rosa received his DDS degree in 1988 from the Federal University of Santa Maria/RS - Brazil. In 1992 he got a post graduate certificate in Periodontics from São Paulo Association of Dentists (APCD), Bauru/SP and in 2005 he received his MS degree and post graduate certificate in Prosthodontics from Center of Dental Research São Leopoldo Mandic, Campinas/SP. He is currently Doctorade Student in Implantology of CPO SLMandic, in Campinas/SP.

He coordinated updating courses in Implantology and Prosthesis over Implants in Meridional Dental Study Center (CEOM) - Passo Fundo/RS from 1998 to 2006. He coordinated the specialization course in Implantology at the same school from 2006 to 2008. He was scientific coordinator of the specialization course in Implantology at Brazilian Dentistry Association (ABO) in Florianópolis/SC from 2000 to 2003. Nowadays, he is teacher of Implantology of these Study Centers.

He developed a new technique to broden indications for immediate loading on individual teeth. Through it, cases of compromised sites with bone loss/gingival recessions can be reconstructed in the same surgical session of tooth extraction, implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and keeping predictability on esthetic aspects. The name of this technique is Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration or “IDR”.

The technique was theme of the book of the same name launched in Portuguese language in 2010, by Santos Publishing (São Paulo – Brazil). The book “Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) – Immediate-loaded implants in compromised alveolar sockets”, sold out its first edition in three months. A new edition in Portuguese was launched in 2011 and the Spanish language version was launched in May 2012. The English language version in going to be launched until the end of 2012.

Since 1993 he is giving lectures in all parts of Brazil and since 2009 he is giving lectures in Brazil and around the world to spread the technique developed by him. He has a private practice and Study Center in Caxias do Sul/RS – Brazil, “Rosa Odontologia”, where he gives courses, hands-on and coordinates research groups.
