The VISTA Institute Philosophy
We believe that the most important aspect of clinical practice is decision making. For that reason, continuing education courses aim to provide the most updated evidenced-based information. To elevate the clinical skills, each course offers simulated exercises and live surgery demonstration. This allows clinician-learners to grasp the information, practice the techniques and receive feedback. Moreover, clinician-learners observe the protocols demonstrated, so that they can more readily implement what they have learned in their clinical practice.Learn More
Introduction to VISTA for Oral Plastic Surgery
Soft tissue deficiencies around teeth and implants are often first noted because of compromised aesthetics. However, such deficiencies are also associated with progressive periodontal and peri-implant attachment loss. Oral Plastic Surgery (OPS) represents reconstructive and regenerative surgical procedures dedicated to repair of...
Advanced Applications of VISTA for Oral Plastic Surgery
Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access (VISTA) can be used in Oral Plastic Surgery (OPS) to address a variety of soft tissue and bone deficiencies around teeth and implants. VISTA offers many surgical, technical and biologic advantages, including 1) ease of release of...
Treatment of Fully Edentulous or Terminal Dentition: Immediate Function
Treatment of edentulous patients of dentate patients with terminal dentition to be transitioned to edentulism poses many challenges, including anatomic proximity to critical oral structures (maxillary sinus, nasal floor, mandibular canal), limited bone volume, inappropriate bone topography...
Management of Atrophic Posterior Maxilla: Guided Bone Regeneration vs Sinus Augmentation
The atrophic posterior maxilla has unique anatomic and structural features, including proximity to the maxillary sinus and low-density bone. The atrophic ridge can either be managed through regenerative or non-regenerative approaches. Sinus augmentation and alveolar ridge...
