Course Overview:

Proper soft tissue esthetics and health are keys to success in dental treatment. Yet, many dentists lack the skills and knowledge to address common soft tissue deficiencies and other problems. This course is designed to create clarity in surgery and allow dentists to achieve soft tissue success for their patients.

Learning Objectives:
  • Most common soft tissue problems and the methods to resolve them for a good esthetic outcome

  • Step-by-step protocol for soft tissue grafting material, flap designs and the appropriate suturing technique
