Master Course on the Bernese Concept for the Treatment of Periodontally Compromised Patient
This aim of this course is to provide the clinician with an evidence based concept on the treatment of periodontally compromised patient. Starting with an overview on the anatomy, microbiology, etiology and pathogenesis, the course encompasses the most important aspects in diagnosis, treatment planning, nonsurgical and surgical therapy, use of systemic and local antibiotics, lasers and photodynamic therapy in the overall frame of a comprehenisve treatment concept. The various phases of periodontal therapy (i.e. systemic, hygienic, corrective and maintenance) including implant therapy in periodontallly compromised dentition and their long-term maintenance will be demonstrated on complex clinical cases. Hands-On workshops and live surgeries will help to acquire in-depth knowledge about the novel methods in nonsurgical and surgical periodontal therapy including the use of various types of ultrasonics, air-flow, perio-flow, lasers, photodynamic therapy, incision techniques, flap designs and suturing techniques aiming to treat the defects caused by periodontal and peri-implant infections.
