Fundamentals of Periodontal Surgical Therapy will give the participant the opportunity to go through the diagnostic, treatment planning, and executive process of applying various surgical therapies within the realm of periodontics. After a brief introduction, a discussion about pre-surgical assessment will follow. The participants will then be introduced to their patients for the day – fresh pig jaws.
The first practical exercise will be a suturing lesson. Conceptual and technical fundamentals of the most common suturing techniques will be presented, and each participant will have the opportunity to practice them.The remainder of the morning will focus on osseous resective surgery as relates to a mandibular crown lengthening procedure. Indications and contra-indications for this procedure will be presented, as well as a step-by-step sequence for how to execute treatment. Each participant will perform the procedure on their pig jaw.
In the afternoon, participants will have another opportunity to perform an osseous resective procedure, but this time it will be for a maxillary pocket reduction, as performed in the definitive treatment of periodontitis. An emphasis will be placed on the special techniques for reflecting a palatal flap, as well as incorporating a distal wedge procedure.The last part of the course will entail a brief discussion of indications and contra-indications to augment attached gingiva via a gingival graft. Each participant will once again perform the procedure on their pig jaw.
