Hands-on Master Course in Periodontal Debridement.

Morning Lecture: Finally! Demystifying Periodontal Debridement: Exactly what to use and how to use it.

Today’s periodontics is about a lot more than removing what you can see or feel. Come learn the most efficient way to successfully interrupt microscopic biofilm, microscopic calculus and clinically detectable calculus! Hand vs ultrasonic, piezo vs magnetostrictive, subgingival airpolishing…we will use the latest evidence to answer all of your questions. Attendees will leave with a clear protocol for achieving consistently better periodontal outcomes. This course will complement, but is not a pre-requisite for attending, the hands-on course.

Afternoon Workshop: Hands on Master Course in Periodontal Debridement

Become a master clinician in 3 hours! Today’s choices include Piezo, Magnetostrictive, Hand Instrumentation and Subgingival Air Polishing. This is a fast-paced clinically oriented course in which participants rotate through stations to objectively learn the strengths and weaknesses of each method. You will also learn the tips and tricks to make whatever you are using more effective and efficient.

Participants leave with a renewed confidence and ability to maximize the result of periodontal therapy for their patients. Dr. Donley literally wrote the book on ultrasonic debridement. This course presents evidence-based protocols to maximize chances for resolving patients’ periodontal disease. Hands on training is intended to allow the attendee to develop maximum confidence in their debridement skills.

The ever-strengthening oral-systemic link means that maximizing the chance for resolution of periodontal inflammation is now more important than ever. Consistently adequate debridement is essential. It is about more than just getting the calculus off. The therapist has to maximally remove microscopic biofilm, microscopic calculus, plaque and clinical calculus. Dentistry now has multiple methods which can make it much more likely for therapists to get the best possible result. Come and learn what to use and how to use it to remove the etiology in all of its forms.

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of hand vs. ultrasonic instrumentation.
  • Show a debridement strategy including which sites to treat, how to treat, how to
  • Determine if treatment was effective.
  • Discuss the differences between ultrasonic units from various manufacturers.
