This course presents current knowledge on and criteria for vertical and horizontal soft and hard tissue management. Participants will learn how to achieve stable and long-lasting soft tissue margins around implant restorations. Soft and hard tissue management, preservation, and guided bone grafting–especially as it relates to the rehabilitation of partially edentulous patients with thin biotypes and high esthetic demands–will be presented in an evidence-based and clinical step-by-step fashion. The position, spacing, and choice of implant materials with management of mucogingival tissues will be discussed, and the techniques to reconstruct the deficient implant site (such as soft tissue grafts, bone graft materials of choice, membrane technology, and growth factors) will be presented along with their indications and limitations.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Understand the criteria for optimal esthetic implant placement
• Identify the proper tissue management and vertical grafting protocol
• Design the ideal surgical guide and material, shape, and timing of abutment and prosthesis

Sascha A. Jovanovic was formally trained in periodontics at UCLA, in implant dentistry at Loma Linda University, and in prosthodontics at the University of Aachen, Germany. He completed dental school at the University of Amsterdam (ACTA) and holds an MS degree in oral biology from UCLA. Since 1990, he has limited his patient and research work to dental implant therapy and bone/soft tissue reconstruction as the director of the UCLA course entitled Advanced Implant Therapy: Live Surgery Demonstrations and Hands-On Workshop and as academic chair and founder of gIDE. Dr Jovanovic’s clinical research emphasizes surgical and esthetic management
in dental implant therapy and bone and soft tissue reconstruction techniques. His applied research focuses on bone regeneration with different bone graft materials, rhBMP-2 growth factors, and barrier membranes as well as the biology of soft tissues around teeth and implants. He has published 63 articles and book chapters and one textbook, entitled Color Atlas of Implantology (Thieme).
