Free webinar to focus on management of soft tissue around implants

NEW YORK, U.S.: The importance of soft tissue in implant dentistry is often underestimated. In an upcoming free Dental Tribune Study Club webinar on Friday, Feb. 2, Prof. Ates Parlar will be focusing on the functional and esthetic aspects of soft tissue surrounding dental implants, presenting a variety of surgical procedures for the treatment of deficiencies in the esthetic zone.

Evidence has demonstrated that the long-term survival of osseointegrated implants is partly dependent on the sealing function and stability of the periimplant mucosa. According to Parlar, the goals of soft-tissue augmentation around implants are to create sufficient zones of attached nonmobile tissue with intimate adaptation to the transmucosal implant structure for function and health and to reconstruct the soft-tissue architecture for esthetic purposes.

Parlar graduated from Ankara University’s Faculty of Dentistry, Turkey, in 1982, becoming Professor of Periodontology at the same university in 1995. A recipient of eight scientific and honor awards, he is the author of more 70 publications and has presented more than 150 lectures nationally and internationally, as well as delivered around 250 master class courses.

The 1-hour webinar, titled “Management of soft tissue problems around dental implants— Esthetic and functional aspects,” will be broadcast live on Friday, Feb. 2, at 9 a.m. EST. Attendance is free of charge after easy registration on the DT Study Club website. Participants will be able to ask questions via a chat window and have the opportunity to earn a continuing education credit by completing a multiple-choice questionnaire on the topic.

Dental professionals who are interested in attending the course may register online here.
