Masterclass met prof. dr. Andy Temmerman

Op donderdag 3 oktober organiseert de NVvP in samenwerking met Dent-Med Materials en Elemental een Masterclass door niemand minder dan prof. dr. Andy Temmerman.

Soft tissue management around oral implants

Tooth and implant: very similar on the one hand and yet so different on the other. The soft tissue differences are intriguing to say the least, but they also have a direct effect on the surgical management of peri-implant soft tissues. This masterclass will attempt to provide insights into how the peri-implant tissues can be of importance in the 'long-term survival' of oral implants and why peri-implant tissue surgery should be a regular part of oral implant treatment. A number of possible surgical techniques will be discussed theoretically and clinically.


18.00 - 19.00 uur: Ontvangst met een lichte maaltijd
19.00 - 20.30 uur:
  • The anatomical differences between the periodontal tissues and peri-implant tissues

20.30 - 21.00 uur Pauze
21.00 uur Workshop: Practicing palatal donor site coverage with novel wound dressings
21.30 uur Afsluiting en borrel


Prof. Dr. Andy Temmerman graduated, cum laude, as a dentist (DDS) in 2007 at the University of Ghent in Belgium. In the same year he started the post-graduate education in Periodontology at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium. In 2010 he graduated as an 'EFP certified' periodontologist (MSc).
