Pikos Symposium 2022 – Dr. Roberto Rossi

The Cortical Lamina Technique: Present and Future of 3D Ridge Augmentation

For many years GBR has been a technique with many lights and also many shadows. Every technique proposed in the past has shown excellent outcomes but also easy complications. The use of non resorbable or resorbable membranes introduces the risk of exposure and or lack of maintenance of volume stability. The advent of cortical laminas represented an easy simplification of the technique since the membrane is in this case made of bone. The presentation will show the multiple applications of this technique and its predictability, also associated with a minor number of complications.

Learning Objectives:
• To understand the nature of a xenogeneic bone membrane and its different features
• To learn how to shape and apply the cortical lamina in different clinical situations
• To understand the ramification of the technique and its application to local anatomical defects

Dr. Roberto Rossi – Graduated cum Laude at the Università di Genova in 1987. Started his career as a Periodontist at Boston University in 1989, received his CAGS in Periodontology in 1991 and his Master of Science in Dentistry in Periodontology in 1992 with a thesis later published on the Journal of Periodontology. Established his private practice in Genova (Italy) limited to Periodontology and Implant dentistry.

Has been very active with different research groups in the field of guided tissue regeneration, guided bone regeneration and esthetic dentistry.

Has been a visiting professor in many different universities (Genova, Pisa, Rome, Murcia, Madrid) dealing with topics related to periodontology, Implantology and esthetics.

Is an international member of the American Academy of Periodontology, a certified member of the Italian Society of Periodontology, active member of the Italian Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, of the European Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, funding member and vice-president of the Bone Biomaterials and Beyond Academy. Has been a board member for 8 years of the Boston University Italian Alumni association.

Author and co-author of many publications on peer-reviewed dental magazines. Co-author of the book Bone Biomaterials and Beyond published in 2014 having written the chapter on guided tissue regeneration.
