SYNOPSIS:

The goal of esthetic reconstruction is to provide patients with naturally looking restorations and healthy surrounding soft tissues. Often, patients present with gingival deformities, such as tissue deficiency or excessive gingivae, thereby posing a challenge to the treating clinician. Other problems include subgingival caries and tooth fractures. These typically lead to difficulties in managing the restorative finish line and an inability to make proper impressions. In other situations, dentists face difficulties obtaining adequate crown retention and a ferrule effect, which can lead to secondary caries, repeated fractures and periodontal complications due to biologic width impingement. It has been shown that proper handling of the gingival tissues can make the difference between treatment success and failure. This course is designed to provide clinicians with the scientific background and surgical techniques to perform periodontal surgery for ultimate esthetics and function. It will address the methods to attain success from a soft tissue perspective.

This course is designed to provide clinicians with the scientific background and surgical techniques to perform periodontal surgery for ultimate esthetics and function. It will address the methods to attain success from a soft tissue perspective and long-term optimal restorative outcomes. Diagnosis and treatment planning tools, complication management and when a referral is indicated will be emphasized. Participants will acquire knowledge in minimally invasive surgery and control of the soft tissue profile around teeth and implants leading to more esthetic and predictable outcomes for their patients.

* This course is intended for general dentists, periodontists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons, dental assistants, dental hygienists and other members of the dental team.
