Current Methods in Periodontal Therapy Including a Periodontist’s View of Implant Dentistry
The most common treatment for periodontal disease is wait and see. This state of affairs is not without justification. Periodontitis is a chronic disease without a cure. Similar to most chronic diseases, early detection and treatment initiation results in better outcomes. We will discuss appropriate treatment options including dental implants for various degrees of periodontal disease. Recognition of adequate tissue requirements for implant placement can lead to timely treatment while avoiding difficult and unpredictable procedures. The course will include treatment planning and site preparation for implant placement, including a hands-on demonstration. Decellularized dermis grafting, socket grafting and ridge augmentation will be discussed, demonstrated and practiced on pig jaws.

Who Should Attend? These hands-on programs were designed originally for AGD Fellows striving to be AGD Masters. We have discovered that these programs can be valuable to all dentists from new graduates to the most experienced clinicians.
16 hours of participation credit for those who attend the 2 days of lecture and hands-on. 34 total hours of participation credit to those who attend the 2 days of lecture and hands-on, complete the assigned protocol in their office, and return to document the protocol assignment.
Participation hours can be designated to at least 2 subject codes, including one subject code that will be mandatory for attaining your MAGD in 2017.
Because of the many aspects of periodontics covered in this program, we can be flexible in assigning CE credits,
within reason, to a number of subject codes.
