Overview / Abstract:


Periodontal disease is a chronically destructive condition affecting many patients. The primary bacterial etiology with several possible local and systemic risk factors account for a rather complex disease entity. It is crucial for clinicians to include periodontal considerations in their treatment planning and in the active phase of therapy.

This course is designed to provide clinicians with the most current knowledge on fundamental issues in periodontics. Participants will learn how to diagnose periodontal disease and related conditions and to assess teeth prognosis. The course will also explore several periodontal treatment modalities and their relation to restorative and reconstructive aspects of treatment. State-of-the-art reviews and position statements by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) will be included.

The information presented in this course will be clinically-relevant to help participants provide optimal comprehensive care for their patients.
