Armed with an abundance of knowledge of how to treat and prevent periodontal disease and its progression with non-surgical periodontal therapy, we are ready to unveil the next steps in treatment when specific areas are not responsive to non-surgical therapy, our first line of defence against periodontal disease.

Learn of periodontal surgical techniques and procedures that are used in only 7% of cases that do not respond favourably to non-surgical SRP protocols.

And, watch Dr. Fritz demonstrate these techniques first hand on a few unconventional items!

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Review the traditional surgical therapies available to manage periodontal disease
  • Understand the benefits and challenges of a microsurgical approach
  • Differentiate between connective tissue grafting and mucogingival grafting
  • Review alternative methods and techniques (i.e., cadaver vs. autogenous sources, pinhole techniques, etc.)
