COURSES
Prognosis for the Periodontally Compromised Tooth
Thomas J. Kepic, DDS, MSD
Course Description
A Historical Perspective Along With Short and Long-Term Follow up of Cases. Establishing an accurate periodontal prognosis is para- mount to case success. Prognosis is often thought of as being “static,” established once, and never to change. However, proper periodontal therapy can alter a tooth’s prognosis, if done in time. This course will show both short and long-term cases where prognosis has changed during therapy.
Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this presentation, the attendee will be able to:
•  Identifying the clinical factors used in assigning prognosis
•  Understanding the historical research that leads to the modern day concept of prognosis
•  Defining the new concept of periodontal diseases and host susceptibility as factors used in determining prognosis

Definitive Periodontal Therapy Without Periodontal Surgery - The 21st Century Way to Treat Periodontitis Endoscopic Periodontal Therapy
Orest G. Komarnyckyj, DDS
Course Description
It is well documented that there are signi cant limitations to conventional scaling and root planing SRP techniques. In this course your paradigm to see a patient to periodontal health is going to be forever altered. Endoscopic Periodontal Therapy is the future for patients requiring SRP.

Scaling and Root Planing are not effective in deep pocket areas that can’t be clearly viewed? In this session we will explore the challenges clinicians face in conventional SRP scenarios and how the endoscope will not only improve the health of the patient, it will impact the quality of life for the clinician.

We will discuss the current treatment protocol developed over 15 years of endoscopic periodontal therapy.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, attendees should be able to:
•  What is endoscopic periodontal therapy and how does it work?
•  What are indications and contraindications for effective use on a daily basis?
•  What is the current protocol based on 15 years of experience with Endoscopic Periodontal Therapy?
