MASTERCLASS: Intensive Course in Periodontology according to the concept of the University of Bern

Plastic-aesthetic and regenerative periodontal therapy.
Soft tissue grafting at implants.
Prevention and treatment of peri-implantitis.

The aim of this course is to provide the general practitioner and the specialist with a comprehensive, evidence based concept aiming to succesfully manage periodontally compromised patients. During the 2 days, a treatment concept based on the scientific evidence from the last 3 decades will be provided. The concept will address the most important aspects related to the treatment of periodontal and peri-implant diseases including diagnosis, nonsurgical, antibiotic/antiseptic, surgical, regenerative and plastic-aesthetic surgery. Treatment concepts for peri-implantitis and recession coverage at implants will round up the course content. Case presentations and case discussions will illustrate on when and how the scientific evidence can be included in the overall treatment philosophy helping the clinician to immediately implement the aquired knowledge in the daily practice.
