Step up your practice with Straumann Implant Family

Course Highlight: Dr. Gerald Siu will share with you his more than 25 years’ experience in using Straumann Dental Implants in different challenging clinical situations with bone graft and sinus lift technique.
Straumann Dental Implant system is among the best documented systems, supported by more than 30 years of extensive scientific and clinical evidence. It has shown a 98.8% survival rate in long-term clinical studies. It's 10-year survival rate (meaning the implant is still secure in a patient’s mouth) is one of the highest observed to date. 

Straumann Dental Implants are built on a foundation of quality, scientific research and leading-edge technology.

Dr. Gerald Siu will share with you his more than 25 years’ experience in using Straumann Dental Implants in different challenging clinical situations, yet with long term promising results.

Bone graft procedures are essential parts of our implant-supported prosthesis treatment. The well augmented bone facilitates implant placement according to the prosthetic-driven principle, resulting in a stronger and more aesthetically pleasing final prosthesis. Various types of bone graft surgeries will be demonstrated in his lectures. They include the Staged or Simultaneous Approach GBR, Ridge Preservation with Mucograft, Split Ridge Procedures, Lateral Window Sinus Lift and Vertical Sinus Osteotome. These complex and difficult procedures will be broken down into simpler in stages so that you can conduct them in your daily general practices. Clinical cases of different clinical situations will be shown in the lectures.
