Subject: Implants Participation

COVID 19 pandemic has dramatically changed the scope of Dentistry, Periodontics, and Implantology. Recent scientific and clinical information is now available. This changes the way Dentistry considers Antibiotic, Bisphosphonate, and Pain Medications for our patients. These new considerations from Biofilm and Osteoporosis research impact our surgical treatment planning for extractions, periodontal surgery, and implant therapies.

The scope of periodontal surgery will be highlighted with an emphasis on Crown Lengthening surgery, and Implant Rescue techniques for failing dental implants.

Course Objectives:

  • The dentist will be able to identify the impact of Antibiotics and Bisphosphonates on periodontal and implant treatment planning.
  • The dentist will be able to treatment plan selected periodontal surgical procedures including mucogingival, flap and crown lengthening
  • The dentist will be able to select bone grafting products for clinical application.
