FULLY BOOKED: Reconstructive surgical procedures around teeth and implants

In the era of patient-driven dentistry, reconstructive periodontal and peri-implant surgeries must be performed meticulously to strive surgical excellence and to provide clinical success in the long-term period. Recent scientific developments in the field of bone and soft tissue regeneration have enabled clinicians to perform minimally invasive approaches. Tooth retention procedures involving reconstructive periodontal surgeries have been well documented over the last 20 years. Innovative techniques and sophisticated surgical flap designs have improved the clinical outcomes and decreased patient morbidity. Unfortunately, there are certain clinical conditions that require tooth extraction and the best alternative for tooth replacement is dental implant placement. When natural dentition is combined with dental implants, treatment modalities become more complex due to anatomical differences. Blood supply, handling of the soft tissues, flap thickness, design and tension are key elements to achieving a successful surgical outcome. These factors should be critically evaluated and controlled by clinician. In this training module, participants will receive the core of modern periodontal treatment concepts for periodontal and peri-implant tissue reconstruction.
