About the Event

You have basic to advanced experience with oral surgery and periodontal plastic surgery and desire to learn, increase your knowledge, refine your surgical skills in soft-tissue management and fully implement these procedures in your practice.

Let Dr Olivier Carcuac during these 2 days of course and workshop/hands-on immerse you in the world of periodontal plastic surgery and give you all the secrets for treating challenging gingival recession defects.


The objective of the Masterclass is to introduce you to the management of gingival recession defects, their etiology, classification and treatment modalities, from basic to advanced techniques.

At the completion of this Masterclass, you should be able to:

- fully comprehend the anatomic and biologic basis for performing soft-tissue grafting and periodontal plastic surgery procedures around teeth.

- perform a focused pre-treatment patient evaluation and develop diagnostically driven soft-tissue treatment plans for your periodontal plastic surgery patients.

- understand soft-tissue wound healing and grafting biology.

- clearly understand when soft-tissue grafting should be performed when managing gingival recession defects. 

- become adept at selecting and sequencing soft-tissue grafting and periodontal plastic surgery procedures as part of multidisciplinary management of complex dental cases. 

- master the surgical principles and state-of-the-art grafting procedures used for root coverage procedures.

- develop and refine surgical skills related to performing the following soft-tissue grafting and periodontal plastic surgery procedures to treat gingival recession defects and enhance esthetics around teeth:  

. Flaps and Minimally Invasive Surgical Approaches used in Periodontal Plastic Surgery 

. Gingival Grafts

. Connective Tissue Grafts

. Free Gingival Graft

. Root Coverage Procedures with/without Interpositional Grafts 

. Place of Soft-Tissue Substitutes in Periodontal Plastic Surgery 

- understand patient management principles and how to avoid complications when performing soft tissue grafting, tissue engineering augmentations and periodontal plastic surgery procedures.
