Presentation Information

Surgical/Restorative Workshops on Crown Lengthening and Soft Tissue Grafting
While these are “Perio” courses, they are geared to helping the General Dentist get improved restorative results. Workshops offer the opportunity to practice surgical techniques on pig jaws. In addition, there is a thorough review of all biologic principles for each procedure, as well as a study of indications and contraindications. Both courses include two video presentations of the surgical procedures, as well as a comprehensive workbook. Interactive treatment planning sessions to review key concepts are part of each workshop as well. They can also be offered as lectures only.

Antimicrobial Treatment for Periodontal Disease – Lecture
This presentation will discuss a scientifically sound, and evidence based, approach for effective control of moderate to advanced periodontal disease using minimally invasive surgical intervention, or scaling and root planning and no flap surgery at all. Both indications will be explained and you will see why Periodontal Surgery or SCRP may fail without using these principles. It is appropriate for both Hygienists and Dentists.
