Soft Tissue Management
for Teeth and Implants
The Complete Course in New York
Dr. Ehab Moussa obtained his bachelor’s degree in dentistry from Alexandria University, Egypt, in 2009. He then joined his father in a specialty practice that focused on dental implant rehabilitation. In 2012, Dr. Moussa proceeded to join the periodontics fellowship program at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland, Ohio where he pursued his master’s degree and residency in periodontics after completing his fellowship.

Who is this event for? Be sure to join us if:
You’ve faced indecisiveness about which technique or procedure to use to achieve your treatment goals in certain cases.
You’ve attended CE in the past yet still face uncertainty with soft tissue management.
You’re ready to replicate predictable results with soft tissues.
Or even if you’ve had success in the past with soft tissue management but are looking to take your skills to the next level.
Success in restorative and implant dentistry is highly dependent on soft tissue health. This course will first review the determinants that are necessary to establish mucogingival health and stability. This will be followed by a review of the diagnosis, treatment planning, and decision-making process for managing different soft tissue defects around teeth and implants.
A focus will then be made on the different techniques involved in soft tissue harvest and grafting around teeth and implants. This will be done didactically first followed by hands-on exercises to implement these techniques.
Participants who complete this course should be able to diagnose, plan and treat a variety recession and mucogingival deficiency cases.
