Master Course on the Bernese Concept for the Treatment of Periodontally Compromised Patient

The aim of this course is to provide general dentists and specialists 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. 

• Anatomy of periodontal and peri-implant tissues
• Biology of periodontal and peri-implant wound healing
• Etiology, prevalence, microbiology and pathogenesis of periodontal
  and peri-implant diseases
• Periodontitis and systemic diseases
• Treatment planning / Case presentations
• Nonsurgical periodontal therapy / old and new concepts
• Use of systemic and local antibiotics in the treament of periodontal
  and peri-implant infections
• Lasers and photodynamic therapy in the treatment of periodontal
  and peri-implant infections
• Diagnosis and treatment of endo-perio lesions
• Chemical plaque control /novel strategies for biofilm management
• Flap designs and suturing techniques for resective or reconstructive
  periodontal surgery
• Crown lengthening in anterior and posterior areas
• Management of furcations
• Implants in periodontally compromised patient
• Diagnosis and treatment of peri-implant diseases
• Risk assessment and maintenance

Live surgeries demonstrating various surgical techniques for anterior and posterior areas including treatment of peri-implantitis will illustrate the techniques presented in the theoretical part and in hands-on workshops.
