Course Overview
Students will embark on a comprehensive journey in soft tissue management for teeth with this module, spanning three days of in-depth exploration. Day One focuses on "Crown Lengthening A to Z," dissecting factors influencing restorative aesthetic outcomes and connecting it with aesthetic restorative procedures. Treatment of recessions and hands-on sessions enhance incision refinement and root coverage success criteria. Day Two extends the exploration to Coronally Advanced Flap Incision Design, discussing donor area approaches, graft types, and the Layering Technique's influence on performance and aesthetics. The culmination on Day Three involves practical sessions covering various techniques, from tunneling to suturing refinement, ensuring a well-rounded understanding and mastery of soft tissue management principles.
