Course Description: Mucogingival Therapy (Saturday, Feb 11, 2023)

This full-day, hands-on course will give the participant the opportunity to go through the diagnostic, treatment planning, and executive process of applying various mucogingival surgical therapies within the realm of periodontics. After a brief introduction, a discussion about pre-surgical assessment will follow. The participants will then be introduced to their patients for the day – fresh pig jaws.

The first part of the morning session will entail a brief discussion of indications and contra-indications to augment attached gingiva via a gingival graft. Each participant will perform the procedure on their pig jaw. The morning session will continue with root coverage for treatment of recession. Indications and contra-indications for this procedure will be presented, as well as a step-by-step sequence for how to execute treatment. Treatment will focus on a classical approach to a single tooth recession. Each participant will perform the procedures on their pig jaw. A break for lunch will follow.

In the afternoon, the focus will shift to more advanced techniques for root coverage, as well as techniques for treating recessions on multiple contiguous teeth. Techniques employing both autogenic and xenogenic soft tissue grafts will be covered. All participants will once again get a chance to perform the various techniques on their pig jaws.

Course Description: Osseous Resective Surgery (Saturday, Mar 18, 2023)

This hands-on course will give the participant the opportunity to go through the diagnostic, treatment planning, and executive process of applying osseous resective surgical therapies within the realm of periodontics. After a brief introduction, a discussion about pre-surgical assessment will follow. The participants will then be introduced to their patients for the day – fresh pig jaws.
The first practical exercise will be a suturing lesson. Conceptual and technical fundamentals of the most common suturing techniques will be presented, and each participant will have the opportunity to practice them.

The remainder of the morning will focus on osseous resective surgery as relates to a mandibular crown lengthening procedure. Indications and contra-indications for this procedure will be presented, as well as a step-by-step sequence for how to execute treatment. Each participant will perform the procedure on their pig jaw. A break for lunch will follow.

In the afternoon, participants will have another opportunity to perform an osseous resective procedure, but this time it will be for a maxillary pocket reduction, as performed in the definitive treatment of periodontitis. An emphasis will be placed on the special techniques for reflecting a palatal flap, as well as incorporating a distal wedge procedure.
