Zero bone loss concepts by Dr. Tomas Linkevičius

The development and maintenance of crestal bone stability Evidence-based 2-day theoretical and practical course


Course Details

The main objective of the course is to learn how to develop and maintain crestal bone stability around implants. Surgical part will focus on importance of vertical and horizontal soft tissue thickness on the outcome of the treatment. Participants will learn how to increase vertical soft tissue thickness by 4 novel methods.

Practical part will focus on using membranes to augment vertical soft tissues on animal models, special suturing techniques, designed for this purpose.

Prosthetic part will focus on implementing special impression method, designed by Dr. Tomas Linkevičius for deeply positioned implants.

Each participant will receive full set of “Zero bone loss concepts” articles, published by Dr. Tomas Linkevičius and co-authors.

Part I. Development of crestal bone stability.

  • The influence of thin and thick tissues on bone condition
  • How to diagnose thin vertical tissues
  • Implant placement depth depending on implant/abutment connection type
  • Selection of materials for vertical augmentation
  • How to increase vertical thickness with allogenic membrane?
  • Reduce the bone to… save the bone
  • “Tent pole” technique to increase crestal bone stability...and many more.


Part II. Maintenance of crestal bone stability

  • How to select cemented or screw-retained restorations
  • The safe cementation without cement excess
  • Easy construction of cement-screw retained restorations, using Ti bases
  • Cement excess – new plague of the implants?
  • The effect of zirconium on peri-implant soft tissues
  • Adherence zone and plaque zone. What is the difference?
  • Supragingival prosthetic material – which one to select … …and many more.
