How to treat a variety of periodontal disease lesions in your practice for your patient’s optimal dental health.
This lecture will cover the aspects of the extent and type of attachment loss on, and the relative importance of, the tooth.  Strategic teeth such as canines and carnassial teeth often deserve special consideration while less strategic teeth however, particularly those adjacent to the larger ones, may be selected for extraction to allow better access to their neighbour for more effective treatment.  A treatment algorithm will help determine an appropriate treatment, from non-surgical methods to surgical periodontal therapy with flap design, implementation and closure.  Concepts of repair, regeneration (periodontal; guided tissue), new attachment and re-attachment will be discussed, as well as the phases of periodontal therapy.
The discussion will end with the issue of whether certain procedures are appropriate for individual patients.  In comparison to humans, a shorter lifespan and the emphasis of function over aesthetics should make us questions if a procedure that might be possible to perform would be best for our patients.
