The Not So Hidden Epidemic: Periodontitis & Peri-Implantitis

7L CE | AGD 490 Periodontics

with Lawrence R. Page, DDS, PhD &
Bruce P. Mandel, DDS

Routine treatment for periodontitis ignores monitoring for pathogenic microorganisms to determine disease-control success at all at-risk sites. The morning will cover effective methods for monitoring pathogenic infections as well as identify specific sites at high-risk.  Then in the afternoon, we'll discuss the growing concern of peri-implantitis. Despite the success rates of dental implants, peri-implantitis presents as a more common complication. Understanding the prevalence, etiology, risk factors, and treatment options will advance the long term success of this modality for our patients.

Creating Smile Design & Emergence Profile: Extraction & Grafting for Ideal Surgical Placement of Implants

7L CE | AGD 690 Implants

with Tim Kosinski, DDS

Patients often present to our dental practices with serious concerns and dental complications. Problems in the aesthetic zone can complicate our treatment options when we’re trying to provide a proper emergence profile and smile design in the front of the mouth. Patient satisfaction in regard to form and function is a challenge. But, with proper protocol and treatment planning, we can achieve a high degree of aesthetics without preparing the adjacent teeth.
