The Sausage Technique

The SAUSAGE TECHNIQUE™ describes the membrane stabilisation of the bone graft particles while acting as an immobilising „skin“ in the early weeks of bone healing.

This technique is used for horizontal ridge augmentation, utilises a native collagen, resorbable membrane to completely immobilise and protect particulate bone graft for the initial weeks of graft maturation. This technique allows the formation of the desired amount of bone.

The hands-on section will provide in depth knowledge of the SAUSAGE TECHNIQUE™ surgery. Flap design, graft and membrane placement, effective flap mobilisation and double-layer suture will be demonstrated and practiced. The management of the distortion of the muco-gingival junction will be discussed and practiced utilising the Combination Graft Technique.
