Periodontal Monitoring & Maintenance in 2019
AM PERIO SYMPOSIUM – PART 1

Post-treatment re-evaluation and ongoing maintenance care are indispensable to arresting progressive periodontitis. This presentation will present the scientific basis and specific clinical protocols to optimize diagnostic monitoring and maintenance of treated periodontitis patients. Evidence-based methods to identify and modify risk factors predisposing to progressive/refractory periodontal breakdown will be reviewed, with emphasis on how to incorporate these procedures into routine clinical practice.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Multi-dimensional periodontal risk assessment
  • Essential components of an effective periodontal maintenance care program
  • Use of antimicrobial/anti-inflammatory agents in periodontal maintenance care
  • Possible systemic health benefits of periodontal maintenance care

Lasers in Periodontics: Non-Implant Uses
AM PERIO SYMPOSIUM – PART 2

Lasers are becoming increasingly popular to the dental armamentarium for a multitude of procedures. Lasers possess specific properties based on their output frequencies which dictate their indications for the various procedures we employ. Any dentist who plans to utilize lasers in their practice, more specifically for periodontal therapy, should have a basic understanding of laser emission characteristics to optimize patient care and to evaluate marketing claims from laser manufacturers.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • This lecture will review various types of lasers and their characteristics for applications in dentistry
  • Emphasis will be placed on laser periodontal pocket therapy
  • Clinical cases will be shown identifying periodontal pocket reduction without recession
  • Human histology evidence of laser assisted cementum mediated new attachment will be presented
