Practical sessions on cryopreserved human cadavers
As part of these sessions, the participants will perform the surgical techniques described above. Practicums will be performed with the use of magnification (microscope/magnifying glasses).
- Techniques for taking donor tissue from palate and tuberosity.
- Techniques for augmenting soft tissue around implants and in bridge areas.
- Autologous connective tissue graft techniques: inlay, onlay, pouch and rotated palatal flap techniques.
- Techniques for increasing keratinised gingiva with free grafts.
- Coronally positioned flap.
- Tunnel technique.
- Double papilla repositioned flap.
- Laterally moved flap.
- Frenectomy/repositioning of the frenula.
- Handling of biomaterial alternatives to autologous connective tissue.
