Course objectives
We often encounter patients who have advanced periodontal disease. In this course, we will cover the different scenarios that challenge periodontal stability, including diabetes, smoking, stress, anxiety and erratic compliance. Different treatment approaches will be presented to manage these challenging scenarios.
This program will also define the components of an implant system, and explore some of the most accepted methods of patient and professional maintenance for the dental auxiliary. Recommendations of how the auxiliary can assist the dental team in state of the art technologies like CAD/CAM will be discussed.
