Soft tissue management is crucial to successful implantology, in function and aesthetics

Getting the basics right, right through to intermediate and advanced procedures

Rich in hands-on


Suture line opening, poor flap design and poor suture technique are prime reasons for surgical failure and complications, no matter how well implants are placed, or grafts harvested.
