The digital full-arch protocol aims at simplifying and standardizing the treatment of complex rehabilitations. This protocol was developed to transform full-arch and/or full mouth rehabilitations into predictable and repeatable treatments.
The concept will be introduced to the participants with a small theoretical lecture that will give a general overview of the approach designed to treat these patients.
The concepts will then be iterated, with more specific applications, during the practical phases of the course. The ‘hands-on’ parts will cover the whole process of the treatment. Participants, therefore, will be exposed to all the phases of the treatment, both at a surgical and prosthetic level.
Digital planning of the implant placement will be done using a planning software (SMOP, Swissmeda) that will be available for all the participants. A surgical guide will be printed in-place to give an overview of the whole procedure and the maintenance of the 3d-printer.
CONELOG implants will then be placed in artificial realistic models, using SMOP guides. The participants will be assisted by the lecturers during every phase of the placement.
Finally, the ‘hands-on’ part will end with digital full-arch impression, taken with an intraoral scanner (Trios, 3Shape).
The final review of the concepts will be done through the presentation of a clinical case
- Learn to strategically plan and treat digital full arch implant restorations.
- Learn to plan and place implants fully guided and immediately provisionally restore.
- Learn about the the advantages and limitations of digital procedures for full arch implant restorations.

Over the past few decades, dental practice has seen a substantial increase in understanding and knowledge of implant treatment. The significance and effects of the soft tissues around dental implants currently represent a crucial element in treatment planning and its short- and long-term outcomes.
For the regeneration and augmentation of soft tissues around implants, various surgical procedures have been suggested. The use of autologous tissue substitutes that offer predictable and stable results currently represents one of the main demands in clinical practice.
The assistant will be able to refresh their theoretical knowledge in this session regarding the significance of the peri-implant soft tissues and how to incorporate these concepts in the various treatment stages, from planning to execution. Additionally, the main techniques for peri-implant soft tissue augmentation with acellular dermal matrix as a substitute for soft tissue autograft will be demonstrated through hands-on exercises.
- Learn about the significance of peri-implant soft tissue and its role in dental implant treatment as a success and risk factor.
- Learn the characteristics of donor sites and soft tissue autograft, as well as the characteristics of available substitutes.
- Clinically practice peri-implant soft tissue augmentation using an acellular dermal matrix.

In addition to implantology, plastic periodontal surgery in particular has developed rapidly over the past two decades and has risen to become an important new discipline in dentistry. Connective tissue grafts improved root coverage predictability, enhanced esthetics, and reduced palatal harvest site discomfort. The introduction of periodontal microsurgery and the development of innovative tunnel techniques both increase the therapeutic reliability of soft tissue augmentation and root coverage.
The development and use of allogeneic and porcine acellular dermal matrices avoid harvesting of connective tissue grafts from the palate, significantly reduces patient morbidity and improves postoperative patient comfort. Related to unlimited availability and distinctly shorter time of surgery AlloDermTM and NovoMatrixTM are highly beneficial for patient and surgeon. These innovative materials open up the comprehensive surgical coverage of multiple recessions simultaneous in both jaws and soft tissue augmentation around implants.
This lecture will present the development and science of appropriate grafting methods around teeth and implants using allogenous and porcine acellular dermal matrix. Surgical techniques with both AlloDermTM and NovoMatrixTM will be shown by case presentations.
- Development and basics of perioplastic root coverage
- Flap designs and preparations
- Surgical procedures of innovative tunnel technique for root coverage using allogenous acellular dermal matrix (AlloDermTM)

Partially edentulous patients often have pathologic migration of teeth, creating supra-eruption, drifting and tipping. This leads to occlusal and space discrepancies of their remaining dentition. Replacement of missing teeth with optimal positions and contours can benefit from adjunctive orthodontic therapy. Loss of multiple teeth may also reduce anchorage. “surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy” (SFOT) involving phenotype modification therapy (bone/tissue augmentation), with/without corticotomy, with/without Temporary anchorage devices (TAD) may enhance outcomes. Clear aligner therapy (CAT) has emerged as a form of orthodontic therapy that is well-accepted by adults. In particular, CAT has significant advantages in periodontal patients, showing better tissue response. Recent advances in digital planning for CAT has incorporated 3D imaging data of bone and roots. These features can aid in optimal positioning of remaining teeth and bone in preparation of implant therapy. This presentation will discuss adjunctive applications of CAT for occlusal and space optimization in preparation for implant therapy. Moreover, CAT in conjunction with periodontal plastic surgery may be employed for comprehensive esthetics and functional management of partially edentulous patients.
- Adjunctive application of Clear Aligner Therapy to optimize occlusion/space distribution in implant therapy
- Role of Phenotype Modification Therapy (PMT) and Surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy (SFOT) in improving orthodontic outcomes
- 3D planning tools available for CAT
- Combination of 3D CBCT imaging data with intraoral scanner data for bone and root viewing
