Sculean Master Course in Periodontology 2024

Sculean Master Course in Periodontology 2024

This course addresses general dentists and specialists who want to learn more about an evidence based concept on the treatment of periodontally compromised patients, regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal and peri-implant surgery along with clinical concepts for the prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases.

Starting with an overview on the anatomy, microbiology, etiology and pathogenesis of periodontitis and peri-implant diseases, the Bernese concept is based on comprehensive biological research of the last decades. It encompasses the most important aspects related to the diagnosis, treatment planning, nonsurgical and surgical therapy, use of systemic and local antibiotics, lasers and photo-dynamic therapy, regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal and peri-implant surgery in the overall frame of a comprehensive treatment concept.

Based on complex clinical cases, the various phases of periodontal therapy (i.e. systemic, hygienic, corrective and maintenance) including implant therapy in periodontally compromised patients and their long-term maintenance will be demonstrated.

Hands-on workshops and high quality live surgeries will help to acquire in-depth knowledge about the use of ultrasonic and air polishing systems, laser and photodynamic therapy, resective and regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal and peri-implant surgery.
