The Geistlich virtual hands-on workshop


Virtual hands-on workshop on Bone Augmentation with the L-Shape Technique


Nadja Nänni, Dr. med. dent.

Target Audience

The Geistlich vLabTM is targeted at GPs, students, graduates, residents, and those interested in bone augmentation procedures at early implant placement, using Prof. Dr. Ronald E. Jung’s L-Shape Technique.


Hands-on workshop about bone augmentation around implants in the aesthetic area using the ‘L-Shape Technique’

In the aesthetic area it is important to provide as much stability to the soft and hard tissue around an implant as possible. A lack of volume around an implant may compromise not only the aesthetic outcome, but also the stability and success of an implant.

This Geistlich vLab™ workshop will focus on prosthetically-driven implant placement in the aesthetic region. Subsequent guided bone regeneration using a bone substitute material and a resorbable membrane will be performed on a plastic model. The GBR-procedure will focus on the so-called ‘L-shape technique’, allowing to augment volume at the cervico-buccal aspect of the placed implant where it is most needed.

Both the introductory lecture and the online hands-on workshop will deliver clinical background and clinical tips and trips regarding the ‘L-Shape Technique’ to the participants in a tell / show / do-manner. The online hands-on workshop will be followed by a Q&A-session allowing for further discussion of the topic.

Agenda and Material

The Geistlich vLabTM will be presented twice, and in an identical manner:

  • Slot 1: 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CET
  • Slot 2: 09:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. CET

The workshop starts with a short lecture by Dr. Nadja Nänni on the topic of bone augmentation procedures in combination with implant placement in the aesthetic zone, especially focusing on the application of the L-Shape Technique with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen with early implant placement to augment and preserve hard and soft tissues around the implant. This introduction is followed by a 35 min hands-on demonstration, where you will watch, listen, learn and perform the procedures shown by Dr. Nänni. The Geistlich vLabTM will end with a short live Q&A session, where participants will have the opportunity to directly interact with Dr. Nänni by submitting questions via live chat.
