Regenerative periodontal surgical procedures comprise approaches for restoration of the tissues destroyed due to inflammatory periodontitis. There exists an abundance of clinical and scientific studies which has documented the efficacy of these procedures. An array of material and protocols have been developed over the past several decades aimed at periodontal regeneration. These therapeutic approaches were partially sidelined by the enthusiasm for dental implants, which were presumed to represent definitive solutions. However, in view of the biological and technical complications which have come to light with dental implants, there is a resurgence of interest in saving teeth compromised by periodontal regeneration.

Educational Objectives:

  • Risk Assessment: Patient & site characteristics and their influence on therapeutic outcome
  • Biological concepts underlying periodontal regeneration
  • Techniques of periodontal regeneration:
    • Guided tissue regeneration (GTR): protocol and material
    • Enamel Matrix Derivative (Embdogain): protocol and material
    • Bone grafting: protocol and material
  • Flap design:
    • Minimally Invasive Surgical Technique (MIST) and Modified MIST
    • Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access (VISTA)
  • Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF)

Simulated workshop and live surgery:

  • Periodontal regeneration
  • Autogenous bone harvesting
  • Flap management: MIST, Mod-MIST, VISTA
  • L-PRF preparation & application
