Learn the Khoury technique from the original source, Dr Thomas Hanser, clinic partner with Prof. Fouad Khoury, and co-author of the best selling Quintessence textbooks: Bone and Soft Tissue Augmentation in Oral Implantology.  Dr Thomas Hanser is renowned worldwide for being at the forefront of Bone Grafting and Aesthetic Implant Surgery.

This 2 day hands-on course covers Autogenous Bone Augmentation (also known as Khoury technique or Biological Bone Augmentation) and associated Soft Tissue Management.

Master the gold standard in reconstructive surgery for reliable, predictable and successful outcomes with fewer complications.


What will you learn

  • safe bone block harvesting
  • preparation and optimisation of the bone
  • horizontal & vertical bone augmentation
  • successful sinus lifting in case of severe alveolar atrophy
  • soft tissue management in bone grafting


Soft Tissue Management in bone grafting

According to Prof. Khoury, successful bone augmentation requires impeccable soft tissue management.

This course covers the aesthetic, functional, and protective aspects of soft tissue management across all stages of implant therapy, including tooth extraction, implant placement, bone grafting, second stage surgery, and prosthetic rehabilitation. These techniques improve the quality and quantity of soft tissue.

Learn how soft tissue grafts, minimally invasive approaches, and tension-free soft tissue closure play a crucial role in reducing complications and achieving long-term tissue stability in 3D reconstruction procedures.






  • biological and clinical factors that contribute to successful bone transplant healing in horizontal and vertical alveolar reconstructions
  • clinical management and understanding of biological factors that influence aesthetic and long-term hard and soft tissue stability – demonstration via clinical cases and numerous videos
  • diagnostic and treatment planning

Hands-on training on sheep jaws:

  • safe retro-molar bone block harvesting
  • successful bone graft stabilisation
  • predictable, long term results in horizontal and vertical bone augmentation
  • successful sinus lifting in case of severe alveolar atrophy




The participants will practice on sheep jaws:

I. Aesthetic soft tissue management:

  • soft tissue graft harvesting and augmentation techniques
  • socket preservation
  • free and pedicle sub-epithelial connective tissue grafting to contour missing
  • volume in the aesthetic zone
  • tunneling technique
  • handling gingival recession
  • flap designs and different techniques for second stage surgery
  • papilla reconstruction
  • analysing and correction of implant failures

II. Functional soft tissue management:

  • creating fixed and keratinised peri-implant soft tissue
  • vestibuloplasty
  • free gingival graft
  • stabilising peri-implant soft tissue techniques

III. Protective soft tissue management:

  • innovative techniques and flap designs for soft tissue closure to avoid postoperative complications and exposure of the grafted bone and soft tissue in lateral and vertical grafting procedures
  • tension free wound closure
  • tunneling technique
  • suture techniques

Complications in sinus lifting procedures

When patients lose teeth in the posterior maxilla, alveolar bone resorption follows as a consequence of physiological bone remodelling following tooth loss and also from sinus cavity pneumatization towards the alveolar crest. These two processes usually result in...
