HANDS ON: Microsuturing - Precision in Technique

Microsuturing is one of the most important steps in periodontal and peri-implant microsurgery. Therefore, it is necessary for the surgeon to undergo an extensive training in order to improve his motor skills by working with both hands under the microscope. In this Hands-On activity, attendees will have the opportunity to practice "Micro-Suture Geometry" in all its richness of details: angle of entry, bite size, direction of needle passing, lack of tension, symmetry and frequency. It will be a great opportunity to work with maximum precision under magnification.
