This course will highlight the extensively published studies using the VST protocol with a special emphasis on the long term (three years) follow up data. The VST protocol offers shortened treatment time, reduces the number of surgical interventions to only one, preserve the original socket orifice topography with minimal or no mid facial post restorative recession, and allows the total socket rehabilitation.
The vestibular socket therapy allows the placement of immediate implants in sockets presented with active infective signs, by using the VST 6 days protocol. The presentation will also highlight the vestibular root removal protocol that allows the removal of subgingivally located roots without any risk of any soft tissue laceration nor socket osseous housing expansion, and the vestibular socket preservation technique that presents a new vision of socket preservation that eliminated the previous known pitfalls of the conventional method.
In this unique course you will get the opportunity to try specially fabricated training VST models, newly designed VST instruments Kit. You learn how to place immediate implants via CAD/CAM on the training model and watch the unique VST animations that facilitate the complete understanding of the concept.
