Root coverage grafting has progressed from the use of palatal donor tissue to use of allografts and xenografts . Recipient site preparation has improved from open sites requiring surface incisions to pouch and tunnel preparations with no surface incisions. These advances have produced results demonstrated in controlled trials to be equivalent to the more invasive alternative procedures while enhancing the patient experience during and after surgery. This interactive limited-attendance hands-on course, based on current clinical and biologic research, is intended for dentists who wish to learn more about the tunnel grafting technique (with allograft) for treatment of soft tissue defects.
Case presentations, surgical videos, and hands-on exercises provide in-depth knowledge about the use of the tunnel technique to achieve predictable coverage of single and multiple recessions
Step-by-step surgical and suturing techniques are presented and discussed
Attendees perform surgical exercises on pig jaws as they follow an illustrated procedural manual that describes each
Individual instruction will be provided by Dr Boeriu during the exercises.
At the completion of this course, you will have the knowledge and hands-on experience to begin performing the tunneling grafting procedure in your office.

What's wonderful regarding the course, that it was addressing professional and beginners. Perspective changing is the right expression about this course!
One of the best classes I have ever attended! Not only is he
showing cases about clinical cases treated based on the current evidence, but also him sharing with us about the details, complications, difficulties faced and challenges made it beyond
I enjoyed my every moment in the classes! He answered our every question. The discussion was very useful I was surprised that it was already the end, while I was longing for more!
You know the feeling of being excited for the every-four-year world cup?! I had the same one for each class in this course! You get to feel, that you want to focus and listen to each word carefully, otherwise you will miss this once-in-a-lifetime goal!
