Advances in periodontal and bone regeneration continue to improve and expand our ability to prevent tooth loss and enhance the functional and esthetic outcome of dental implants. This program reviews the principles of tissue engineering and the clinical application of available regenerative materials and strategies, including growth factors, lasers and stem cells. Special attention is given to the rationale and evidence-based selection of regenerative approach.
Upon course completion, you will:
- Be able to recognize clinical parameters important in the selection of regenerative strategies and materials.
- Understand the rationale for the clinical application of available regenerative strategies and materials.
- Be able to describe expectations of clinical outcomes based on recent evidence-based reviews.
