Explore the Benefits of Zirconia Dental Implants at the Soft Tissue Management Course
The time of zirconia dental implants is NOW and it presents a significant opportunity for your business to enhance the well-being of your patients and drive patient satisfaction. Ceramic implants, specifically zirconia implants, offer numerous advantages over traditional implant materials like titanium. Let's explore how ceramic implants can benefit your business, your patients' happiness, and, most importantly, their health.
By embracing zirconia dental implants in your practice, you can position your business at the forefront of dental innovation, attracting patients who value the benefits of ceramic implant. Your patients will appreciate the natural aesthetics, improved soft tissue response, and long-term health advantages associated with zirconia implants, leading to higher patient satisfaction and loyalty.
This course will present various clinical cases and techniques that demonstrate the practical applications of achieving periodontal regeneration and enhancing esthetic outcomes. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the significance of zirconia implants in wound healing and regenerative procedures, leading to optimal clinical results.

This course is for dentists and periodontists who want to learn more about regenerative and esthetic procedures in periodontology. The field of cell and molecular biology has revealed important information about wound healing, showing that it can result in either scar tissue formation (repair) or the restoration of lost tissues (regeneration).
This course addresses general dentists and periodontists who intend to learn more about the use of regenerative and esthetic procedures in periodontology.
Advances in cell and molecular biology have contributed to increased understanding of wound healing of various tissues, and revealed a great complexity of processes involved. In general, the outcome of wound healing can be characterized either as repair, i.e. scar tissue formation that differs in form and/or function from the original tissues, or regeneration, i.e. form and function of the lost tissues is restored. A large body of evidence has established that polypeptide growth and differentiation factors, natural biological mediators critical to development of tissues and organs, may support wound healing/regeneration creating an environment conducive to and/or immediately inducing de novo tissue formation.
The better understanding of the biology combined with improved surgical techniques yielded to clinical concepts enabling predictable treatment outcomes in intrabony and furcation defects. Recently, the use of biological active molecules such as enamel matrix proteins in conjunction with innovative surgical techniques such as the Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel (MCAT) with or without connective tissue grafts or collagen matrices has been proven a predictable technique to treat single and multiple gingival recessions and to correct various types of soft tissue defects around teeth and dental implants, improve tissue thickness and avoid scar tissue formation. Presentation of clinical cases, schematic drawings and video presentations will demonstrate the clinical applications of various techniques to achieve periodontal regeneration and improve esthetic outcomes.
