Objectifs éducationnels

The present lecture will focus on contemporary and novel techniques to enhance soft tissue phenotype at implant sites, and to prevent and manage implant soft tissue complications. The use of autogenous grafts, substitutes, and the role of the implant prosthetic components will be discussed in details.

Biological and esthetic complications of dental implants are not rare findings.

Recent scientific evidence highlights the importance of the peri-implant soft tissue phenotype and its augmentation for improving esthetics, health, and patient comfort at implant sites.

While soft tissue augmentation techniques with autogenous grafts have been shown to be successful, minimally invasive approaches with collagen matrices and biologics have been more and more advocated by clinicians and patients.

The present lecture will focus on contemporary soft tissue grafting approaches for promoting peri-implant health, esthetic outcomes, and stability of the soft tissue margin over time.

AM Session: Lecture (max capacity of 60 participants)

    Dr. Lorenzo Tavelli is a full-time assistant professor and the director of the Postgraduate program in Periodontology at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Tavelli graduated from the University of Milan and then completed his three-year residency in Periodontics and Master of Science at the University of Michigan. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. Dr. Tavelli’s main focus in clinical research and daily practice is microsurgical and minimally invasive soft tissue grafting procedures around teeth and dental implants, where he has been pioneering in the combined use of High Frequency Doppler Ultrasonography and wound healing biomarkers for assessing graft perfusion and the surgical outcomes. Dr. Tavelli has been extensively lecturing worldwide on these topics at the main scientific symposia. He has published more than 100 scholarly publications in the main international peer-reviewed journals while serving as an Associate Editor for Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research. He was the recipients of several research awards, such as the 2023 American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) Earl Robinson Regeneration Award, the 2022 AAP Foundation Nevins Clinical Research Fellowship, the 2021 Goldman Clinical Research award from the Italian Society of Periodontology, and the 2020 AAP Balint Orban Research Award, among others.
