The DVD-Video covers the following topics as E-Learning Lessions presented by the authors Otto Zuhr and Marc Hürzeler.
Pre-Operative Soft Tissue Management
• Which clinician should consider pre-operative soft tissue improvements?
• Are there different opinions about the functional versus the esthetic sites?
• How can it be achieved clinically?
• What materials could be used?
Peri-Operative Soft Tissue Management
• What is the key for success during peri-operative soft tissue management?
• How can the clinician influence the healing potential?
• What do we need to consider in the functional area and esthetic zone?
Post-Operative Soft Tissue Management
• What are the requirements for a well-functioning peri-implant mucosa?
• How can these requirements be achieved clinically?
• Implant uncoverage in the upper and lower posterior area?
• What are the requirements for the peri-implant mucosa in esthetic areas?
• How can these r equirements be achieved clinically?
• What kind of technique can be used in a given clinical situation?
• Implant uncoverage in esthetic areas - A step by step procedure.
Otto Zuhr studied dentistry at the University of Aachen from 1986 to 1992. He is board-certified specialist in Periodontology of the German Society of Periodontology (DGParo) and runs a private office together with Marc Hürzeler in Munich, Germany dedicated to periodontology and implant dentistry. With more than 25 years of clinical experience and teaching practice, Dr. Zuhr has become a proven expert in his field well beyond the European borders. From 2007 to 2014 he was board member of the German Society of Periodontology (DGParo) and he`s presently holding an associate professorship position at the Department of Periodontology of the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University in Frankfurt/Main, Germany (Director: Prof. Peter Eickholz). Otto Zuhr has written several refereed scientific articles in the field of periodontology and implant dentistry. His book "Plastic Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery" was published by Quintessence Publishing in 2012. His research activities are focused on oral soft tissue wound healing and oral soft tissue reconstruction.
The coverage of recessions around teeth is a very successful surgical treatment. The published evidence suggests that periodontal plastic surgeons can very predictably perform these procedures. However, how does reality present? What are the measurement methods and indexes used to support the external evidence? During this lecture, we will look very critically at the evidence we used to support our enthusiasm about the coverage of recession procedures. Second, we will try to answer the raised question in the title of this lecture. Third, the entire thought process will be supported by clinical cases.
