The treatment of patients in a modern dental practice involves therapies, which enhance predictability and reduce risk. Over the past decade, clinical research has resulted in novel treatments such as biologics, but also a better characterization of patients with inherit risk. When the dental practitioner combines this knowledge, an improvement in patient outcomes occurs. This course will review risk profiles and treatment of peri-implant disease, use of adjacent for bone regeneration, periodontal non-surgical therapies and dental technologies in the pipeline.

Upon course completion, you will:

  • Acquire the basic knowledge regarding innovation in periodontics and implant dentistry
  • Be exposed to advanced procedures and state-of-the-art techniques.
  • Be able to identify indications for new technologies in clinical practice
  • Be exposed to future developments in periodontics and implantology
