Webinar: Periodontics at Dalhousie University
December 5, 2023 8 PM ET
The Royal College of Dentists of Canada would like to invite you to the next session of our monthly webinar series on December 5, 2023 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.
We are pleased to welcome two graduate students from Dalhousie University presenting on topics in Periodontics.
Dr. Drew Young – Minimally Invasive Soft Tissue Grafting for Root Coverage
Treatments for root coverage are continually evolving towards a more minimalistic approach. This shift aims for less patient morbidity, faster healing times and superior esthetic outcomes, while still achieving clinical success. A case involving a tunnel approach combined with an acellular dermal matrix, used to treat multiple gingival recessions in the maxilla, will be presented. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this technique, and considerations for minimally invasive soft tissue procedures.
This Session will be moderated by Dr. Debora Matthews
Dr. Haider Hussain – Optimized Guided Bone Regeneration
In instances of inadequate thickness of alveolar bone, Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) may be required to facilitate successful implant placement. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and limitations. Exploring a case of failed GBR due to early infection and membrane exposure, we will discuss ways to optimize successful GBR procedures using d-PTFE membrane. We will present the advantages and disadvantages of types of regenerative membranes and various bone graft materials, together with the management of late membrane exposure.
This session will be moderated by Dr. Haider Al-Waeli
