Planning for perplexing periodontics

Presented by Dr Andrei Locke

Many unique host factors drive the pathophysiology of periodontics, gingival recession and peri-implants. Clinical management options are ever broadening; however, this gives greater choice and therefore demands more discretion in application to each individual. This presentation will look at some complex presentations and dissect the factors that aid selection of appropriate treatment choices for each case. You will learn how to identify key determinants driving appropriate periodontal treatment planning decision-making in complex clinical cases.

Treatment planning from a prosthodontist’s perspective

Presented by Dr Thomas Giblin

Learn some tips and tricks on treatment planning from a prosthodontist’s perspective. When planning a complex case, it is often hard to know where to start. Explore the use of common landmarks that aid us in planning these cases, and see some cases displaying these concepts.

Learn how to:

  • Identify common landmarks that aid with planning
  • Measure and diagnose a patient based on these landmarks
  • Understand which treatments these diagnoses dictate.
