The BBA Concept for Real Bone Builders

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 course 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.


• Introduction of the BBA Concept (Biological Bone Augmentation with pure autogenous bone)
• What are the basics- where are the limits in augmentation techniques
• Lateral augmentation and and vanced sof tissue management
• The atrophied edentulous maxilla- surgical and prosthetic concepts
• Complication treatment pre- intra- and postoperatively
• External sinus grafting and the layering technique
• Peri-implantitis treatment


• 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

In the `Simulation` session relevant bone harvesting and augmentation techniques will be simulated and trained on pork jaws. This course is limited to 30 participants.
