Hands-on Workshop with Dr. Anton Sculean

The Bernese Concept for Treatment of Soft Tissue Defects at Teeth and Implants
Anton Sculean, DMD, Dr Med Dent, MS, PhD
Professor and Chair - Department of Periodontology, University of Bern, Switzerland

The aim of this course is to address the most important aspects related to the treatment of soft tissue defects at teeth and implants using the Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel (MCAT), the Laterally Closed Tunnel (LCT), or the combined MCAT + LCT technique with autogenous tissue or soft tissue replacement materials. Case presentations will illustrate when and how scientific evidence can be incorporated into the overall treatment philosophy, assisting clinicians in immediately implementing the acquired knowledge into their daily practice.

The following issues will be trained on pig jaws:

  1. Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel (MCAT) with the use of connective tissue graft or soft tissue replacement graft
  2. The Combined MCAT + LCT
  3. Harvesting technique for palatal connective tissue graft
  4. Suturing techniques for closure of palatal donor site
  5. Suturing technique for graft fixation
  6. Suturing technique for coronal displacement of the tunnel
  7. Suturing technique for lateral closure
  8. Surgical technique for MCAT using a collagen matrix
  9. Use of a collagen matrix to gain attached gingiva / attached mucosa width around teeth and dental implants.
