Presented by Alison Stahl, Dental Hygiene Educator Regional Coordinator for the Oral Cancer Foundation
In today’s economy patients are looking for long-term, predictable results when making decisions on treatment options. Early detection is the key when treating any disease process and especially in the treatment of periodontal disease to keep your dentistry looking greater, longer. Collaboration among the entire dental team is elementary to increased case acceptance. Regenerative therapies have significantly impacted clinical practice on a number of levels. Building upon bone grafting and guided tissue regeneration techniques, emphasis will be placed on biologic modifiers, particularly enamel matrix derivative. This discussion will focus on regenerative vs. repair and the role of these progressive therapies in the decision making process. Evidence-based research and clinical cases will be presented.
• History of periodontal disease and non surgical therapies
• Implementing a collaborative approach to comprehensive care
• Case presentation and case acceptance
• Repair vs. Regeneration
• History of Enamel Matrix Proteins
• Use of biologic mediators for hard and soft tissue regeneration
• Review of research studies
Dinner & Registration 5:30pm • Course begins at 6:00pm • 2 CE • RSVP by 2/7/17
