Dr. Steigmann presents different ridge augmentation procedures with focus on a proper soft tissue management to achieve primary wound closure.
Dr. Steigmann is founder and director of the “Steigmann Institute” and maintains a private practice in Neckargemünd, Germany. He is associate of different internationally renowned universities and is member of multiple associations such as DGOI, FIZ, BDIZ and ICOI.
During the webinar he in detail describes different defect morphologies and clinical challenges implantologists are regularly faced. To reach predictable and stable outcomes Dr. Steigmann presents special flap designs and suturing techniques, and discusses the use of biomaterials such as cerabone® and Jason® membrane.
Jason® membrane is a particularly thin, native collagen membrane obtained from porcine pericardium that provides a long barrier function. cerabone® is a 100% pure bone mineral of bovine origin manufactured by a unique 1200°C production process. The excellent biomechanical properties together with the specific resorption profile of Jason® membrane optimally support both, early healing of the cerabone®-grafted area, and the long-term stable integration of the particles.
