Autogenous Implant Surgical Procedures for the Esthetic Region
September 28 - October 1, 2022

Course Overview

Autogenous Surgical Procedures

The keywords of this course are:
Sustainable, Renewable, Local and Treatment Planning

Basically, all surgical procedures that one needs in the esthetic area are exercised during this dental course, featuring the utilization of autogenous tissues and procedures for implant placement. To master hard and soft tissue enhancement in the esthetic region with proven and innovative treatment options is the focus.

In more than 25 years, Snjezana Pohl has covered the entire spectrum of oral surgery and periodontology but implant surgical procedures in the esthetic area has always been her focus of interest. From early on, she realized how collapse prevention is superior to reconstruction and that nothing compares to the results achieved by using autologous tissue and its biologic superiority.

This meant that she was an early adopter of partial extraction therapy, seeing the value in dentin autograft, tuberosity tissue, and osseodensification. In 2003 she started to combine hard and soft tissue augmentation techniques to treat Socket Type 2 and 3, so mIVAN technique was born. In 2020, long term results of up to 11 years with mIVAN technique were published.

Most importantly, successful esthetic surgical treatment is less about procedures, but very much about thorough treatment planning, proven concepts, a clear decision tree, and autologous tissue utilization, when it comes to autogenous implant surgical procedures in the esthetic region.

Course participants will be presented a clearly structured decision tree for choosing the most predictable treatment option based on anatomy and biology. You will receive extensive training on all presented techniques during the hands-on portion of the course. A wide variety of autogenous tissues and techniques for implants in the esthetic region will be addressed and practiced.

Dr. Pohl published an app to share her knowledge, cases and procedure protocols. The procedures in “Decision Matters” are based on what she have found to deliver the best most predictable results. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play
