“Submergence Profile: the intermediate zone ... when the pink tissue meets the gray issue: The Umbrella Concept”


Tissue behavior in the dual zone depends on the biological space that is created, after implant placement and the abutment connection, to maintain and preserve the marginal bone crest. The organization of fibroblasts, collagen fibers and the capillary network around the abutment-crown complex is fundamental for the feeding of perimplant bone tissue and depends on the space that is granted at the time of restoration.

“Bone Growing Ceramic Implants : Latest update on bone metabolism – Intelligent supplementation”

Summary :

In contrast to titanium, zirconia oxide ceramics is well reacted material wich no longer has free electrons and therefore behaves completely neutral in the bone and healing mechanism. The advantage here is, that you can place immediate implant even in highly infected areas without risking infection.

Intelligent implant forms that support the “tentpole umbrella principle” can generate new and especially healthy and well done (lamellar bone) without the need for bone grafting material only by the use of PRF membranes as information and matrix (osteoneogenesis).

The concept is based on the fast, that the best bone around the implant is build when the implant is on the one hand solid, but having a large as possible cavities around the implant. This seems to be contradictive at first glance, but can be solved with an intelligent implant shape and intelligent protocol.

It goes without saying that for this bone metabolism following the callus formation, the corresponding micro nutrients must be made available in order to generate the optimal mineralization and new bone formation.

“The Inverted Body Shift Concept in Macro Implant Design to Enhance Biologic and Esthetic Outcomes”

Summary :

Immediate tooth replacement therapy has become a mainstream treatment modality for single and multiple tooth implants in the esthetic zone. However, a balance exists in the amount of primary stability afforded in extraction sockets and gap distance from the labial plate for graft material and new bone formation. 

An inventive macro design concept based upon biologic principles that combines hybrid strategies in implant diameter, shape, and thread pattern will be introduced. The inverted body-shift design concept will be supported by pre-clinical [animal histology] and clinical [human] studies that scientifically supports, validates, and reinforces the biologic principles in design that ultimately enhances esthetic outcomes in modern day implantology.

Learning Objectives:

- Understand the inverted body-shift concept in macro implant design
- Understand the biology behind circumferential bone volume for long term maintenance to prevent ridge collapse, recession, and papillae loss

“Partial Extraction Therapy (P.E.T)”


The loss of teeth will lead to resorption of the buccal plate with its resultant need for extensive augmentative procedures (both bone and soft tissue) as well as the risk of poor long term aesthetic stability. Partial Extraction Therapies (PET) are techniques that allow us to maintain the buccal bone plate and hence prevent the collapse of the alveolar bone creating a platform for ideal soft tissue and bone which is stable in the long term. This is a greater problem in the aesthetic areas. This lecture will take you through the different options with regards to immediate implant placement as well as the most cutting edge PET in a step by step fashion

“Restauration esthétique implantaire : L’innovation au service de la biologie”
« Aesthetic implant rehabilitation : Innovation »


La restauration prothétique du secteur antérieur maxillaire représente un defi esthétique majeur. Le traitement esthétique est basé sur la création de dents aux proportions agréables et leur intégration harmonieuse avec la gencive, les lèvres et le visage du patient. Bien que faisant appel à des thérapeutiques et approches différentes, ces objectifs sont communs à tous types de supports, qu’ils soient dentaires ou implantaires. Toutefois, les restaurations implantaires nécessitent une mise en œuvre très spécifique tant chirurgicale que prothétique.

Cette présentation a pour objectif la description de protocoles standardisés, fiables et reproductibles qui utilisent les dernières avancées technologiques et chirurgicales permettant d’assurer une parfaite intégration esthétique et fonctionnelle des restaurations antérieures implantaires.

Points forts : Rendre simples et reproductibles les traitements esthétiques implantaires grâce à une méthodologie et des outils efficaces.

“SSA Concept : A biogically driven strategy for immediate implant placement in molar sites »


More than 60% of the tooth involve 1st molar replacement. As of now, very few publications are addressing optimized clinical protocols and predictability of the overall treatment for this highly implanted region.
In this perspective, the use of an anatomical CAD-CAM generated healing abutment after immediate implant placement for molar sites has the potential to improve treatment workflow from a surgical as well as prosthetic standpoint resulting in soft tissue stability and esthetic achievment.This, so called SSA concept (Sealing Socket Abutment), offers a predictable and biologically oriented solution to protect wound closure maintain blood clot and provide mechanical support for tissue stabilization during healing time. Additionnally, It provides minimally invasive approach, and significantly reduces the conventionnal overall treatment length.

“Implantology 3.0”

Summary :

The increasing demand of patients for mouth rehabilitations without removable prosthesis, changed implantology in the last decade.

Implantology moved form dogmes and technics to a human based, well being and aesthetics practice.
In parallel, implant treatment inconter the revolution of CADCAM, guided surgery and GBR.
Throught several clinical cases, we’ll see how to abord and make theses technics more efficient.

-  Can we systematize extraction, immediate implantation ?
-  Do we have to use guided surgery technics on a daily basis ?
-  Do we have to favor tissue or bone level ?

“Basal & Axial Anatomo Physiological implantology in the daily practice”

“Implantologie anatomo-physiologique axiale et basal en pratique quotidienne”



Dans les situations d’atrophie osseuse majeure en présence de patients ne désirant pas ou ne pouvant pas avoir recours aux greffes classiques, l’implantologie basale, associée à l’implantologie axiale anatomiquement adaptée, permet de restituer une mastication fonctionnelle implanto-portée en prenant appui sur les poutres principales du squelette maxillo-mandibulaire.

Pour réussir ce challenge sans avoir recours aux greffes osseuses préalables, nous utilisons la préparation ostéogénique à l’aide d’ostéotenseurs matriciels ainsi qu’un arsenal de racines artificielles spécifiques : implants étroits à expansion de crêtes fines, micro/macro filetés, à spires inversées, implants obliques angulés, ou encore Diskimplants à plaque ostéosynthésée. Ces dispositifs médicaux nous permettent un ancrage osseux immédiat dans l’os vivant résiduel du patient. Une fois ostéoancrées, ces fixtures sont recouvertes soit par des copeaux d’os prélevés in situ soit par du biomatériau stabilisé par des membranes de PRF. Les techniques de Soft Brushing permettent un repositionnement passif du lambeau muco-périosté garantissant le succès de la ROG grâce à des sutures adaptées.

Nous réalisons ainsi une véritable implantologie anatomo-physiologique pérenne capable de résister aux efforts de la fonction masticatoire.


Basal implantology combined with anatomically appropriate axial implantology can restore functional mastication on implants placed in the major pillars of the maxillo-mandibular skeleton.  This is particularly indicated for patients with severe bone atrophy who cannot or who do not wish to be managed with conventional bone grafts.

In order to be successful without prior bone grafting, treatment requires osteogenic preparation with bone matrix Osseotensors and the use of an arsenal of specific artificial roots including narrow macrothreaded/microthreaded implants with reverse pitch turns for the expansion of narrow ridges, oblique implants, and plate-form Diskimplants.  These medical devices can be immediately anchored in the patient’s residual living bone.  After installation, the implants are covered over with bone chips obtained in situ or with a bone substitute material stabilized by PRF membranes.  Soft Brushing techniques permit passive repositioning of the muco-periosteal flap that is closed with appropriate sutures, thereby contributing to successful guided bone regeneration.

The efficacy of this anatomo-physiological approach has been confirmed by the long-lasting resistance of these implants to masticatory forces.
