Course Description:

A thorough analysis of the indications and guidelines for periodontal surgeries and occlusal adjustment.  All too often the periodontist takes on a case without going into the details and rationale for how a case is going to be treated and the expected outcomes.  This course will first review the full gambit of periodontal surgery techniques followed by a discussion of regenerative techniques with and without bone grafting and /or guided tissue regeneration.  Periodontal surgery is not a “one size fits all approach”.  The essence of periodontal care is applying the proper approach to the situation at hand.  The attendee will be exposed to a complete overview of periodontal surgery and how it impacts on the restorative treatment in question.
