Augmentation in the Lower jaw – Expectation vs Reality – Dr Ignas Antanavičius

About the webinar:
Lateral augmentation in the mandible is often used to improve the quantity of bone during dental implant procedures.
Bone grafting in the mandible however brings many challenges, particularly in the posterior region, which can lead to complications. Sometimes the clinician may expect to generate new host bone as a result of the graft procedure but will only find an increase in soft tissue thickness. But is this a complication? Maybe this is enough to have stable tissues around implants in the long-run?
During this webinar, Ignas will show several different clinical cases and discuss outcomes three months after augmentation.

About the speaker:
Ignas graduated with a master of dentistry at the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences. He completed his residency in the Maxillofacial department of LUHS Kaunas Clinics and obtained an Oral surgeon degree.
