Description:

This workshop will highlight the current concepts and techniques for providing effective non-surgical management of periodontal diseases in both a lecture and hands-on format. The etiology of periodontal diseases along with skills to help motivate patients to control dental plaque will be reviewed with an understanding that periodontal-peri-implant diseases are systemic. Diagnostic techniques for accurate probing measurements and calculus detection will be discussed coupled with the hands-on use of a novel dental model with a stimulated attachment apparatus. The rationale of periodontal hand instrumentation will be presented with hands-on experience using classical and innovative curettes, along with a hands-on instrument sharpening workshop using diamond sharpening cards. The theory and use of magnetostrictive and piezoelectric ultrasonics will be presented and discussed. The emerging role and use of air polishing with the latest agents and supragingival and subgingival tips will be presented along with the effective sequencing of appointments for maintenance therapy. This course is a repeat of Dr. Levi's workshop (W06) on Thursday, June 24 from 1-5 p.m. Attendance is limited to 30.
