In many cases bone augmentation is necessary before implants can be inserted. Additionally, the soft tissue management can be a decisive factor for the implant success. In all cases the “Goldstandard” of using autologous bone is in competition with the use of Bone Graft Material products. This lecture gives deep insights in the Concept of Biological Bone Augmentation (BBA) with pure autogenous bone and tissue and is addressed to all clinicians, who have already own experience in augmentation techniques. Clear guidelines for the use of autogenous bone harvesting and augmentation techniques in order to achieve predicable results will be provided as well as reliable techniques in complication treatment. 

Aims and Objectives:

- The symbiosis of hard- and soft tissue management

- How to prevent complications in association with sinus grafting

- Diagnosis and reliable backward planning in compromised cases

- Complication treatment pre- intra- and postoperatively

- How to harvest bone intra-orally and how to deal with vertical defects

Learning outcomes
