Course Description

Implants, Oral Surgery, Periodontics

Dental hygienists are often the first line of providers to diagnose patients with periodontal disease, to identify and successfully diagnose mucogingival deformities around teeth or implants, to identify hopeless teeth and to recognize areas for horizontal or vertical ridge augmentation procedures. After the completion of the initial non-surgical periodontal therapy (phase I), several patients undergo advanced surgical treatment, which include either resective approaches such as osseous surgeries or regenerative approaches such as guided tissue regeneration (GTR) or horizontal/vertical guided bone regeneration (GBR), mucogingival surgeries to increase the keratinized tissue or surgical implant treatment. The role of dental hygienists in the surgical treatment of periodontally compromised patients is essential.

“The educational teaching methodology used in this course is live, interactive lecture presented via Zoom webinar with an accompanying PowerPoint presentation. Both the live webinar and the PowerPoint presentation incorporate a variety of audio and visual cues to enhance audience members’ understanding and retention of key concepts. In addition, question and answer periods are provided for at the conclusion of each section of the live webinar.”
