Since 1994 he maintains a private clinic in Munich, together with Dr. Bolz, devoted to periodontology, implantology and restorative dentistry and established with his partner Dr. Bolz the Institute for Periodontology and Implantology, IPI GmbH, Munich. In 1997 Prof. Hürzeler and Dr. Zuhr joined the clinic and IPI. He is in the editorial board of several journals and lectures extensively nationally and internationally in the fields of periodontics, plastic periodontal surgery, implantology and aesthetics. Prof. Wachtel is author and co-author of over 100 scientific articles and book chapters.

In 2009 he became associate editor of the “Journal of Clinical Periodontology”. Currently he is Professor at the University of Berlin, Medicine Charité.

Oral Surgery - Hard Tissue Augmentation - Lecture

3-D-Augmentation of an Alveolar Ridge With a Individualized Allograft Bone Block

Duration:

06:18

Instructor:

Prof. Dr. Wachtel

The operator Dr. Markus Schlee, Forchheim/Germany, augments the alveolar ridge in the molar region of the mandibula. For this purpose, a ready-made bone block allograft is tailored and applied. The use of the block allograft spares the patient the harvesting of autogenous bone within the surgery, and consequently makes the process more comfortable and shorter for the patient. The commentary text originates from Professor Dr. Hannes Wachtel, Munich/Germany.more »

        Implantology in the aestethic zone is a continuous burner for every dental practitioner who tries to place implants to the patients fullest satisfaction. Professor Markus Hürzeler and Professor Hannes Wachtel, both well known implantologists from Munich/Germany, share their clinical experiences and scientific insights. In this part 2 of their lecture Dr. Otto Zuhr, also Munich/Germany, joins them to present clinical cases with different levels of difficulty. They give examples for clinical situations that will end up predictable or with esthetic failure. Due to their experience they enroll a clinical classification system staging the diagnostic outcome in four types.more »

                The objective of this operation was the coronal displacement of the gingival margin in order to cover multiple periodontal recessions in the upper right jaw.  This was accomplished through a coronally advanced flap combined with the application of Straumann Emdogain (an enamel matrix protein). Compared to the surgery using a subepithelial graft obtained from the palate, this method reduces patient discomfort.more »

                        Due to the atrophic alveolar bone in the right mandible, Professor Wachtel decides to perform a two-stage surgical procedure for the planned implantation. First, a horizontal bone augmentation based on the Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) technique needs to be performed to create a sufficient implant bed. This procedure is shown in this presentation. The implantation is not part of this video but conducted later in a separate surgery. more »

                                      In the here shown technique for recession coverage in the upper jaw a coronally advanced flap without relief incision is chosen. First the incision in the interdental area is undertaken which leads to the surgical creation of the papilla. After that the marginal areas are prepared and the flap is build up to the mucogingival limit in the sense of a full flap. From here a split flap is prepared to be able to shift the flap to coronal. The application of an enamel matrix protein is followed by the microsurgical closure with different suturing techniques.more »

                                              Periodontology deals more and more with the problem of gingival recessions. It is a frequently seen diagnosis in the anterior region. Especially high smile lines can cause significant restricted aesthetics for the patient.more »

                                                    In this operation a deep periodontal defect in the anterior area of the mandible is cleaned and restored using autologous bone in combination with Straumann Emdogain. To gain access to the defect area a full thickness flap is prepared. Additionally, an “internal flap” is prepared and placed directly on top of the restored defect. Both flaps are thoroughly fixed with micro-sutures to ensure primary healing. more »

Following the extraction of tooth 21, Professor Hannes Wachtel (Munich) is performing the transplantation of a free mucosal graft in order to preserve the extraction socket. To obtain a
 thick graft from the tuber region he uses the soft tissue punch technique.more »

                                                            As part of the “Munich Concept”, a planned implantation is shown here in region 11. When inserting the drill template, it becomes evident that the bone defect is too extensive to allow an implant to be inserted in the prosthetically correct position. For this reason, a two-stage surgical procedure is performed with horizontal bone augmentation using the double-layer technique. The initial situation and surgical procedure are presented.more »
