Join Dr. Scott Froum to learn Hard Tissue Grafting:
Saving teeth with Regeneration
One of the principal goals of dentistry should be the preservation of the natural dentition. The opportunity to save teeth with advanced periodontal disease has become possible with advances in regenerative tissue engineering. With new potential to restore both hard and soft tissue around teeth lost because of periodontal disease, a shift in prognosis has occurred. What was formerly considered a hopeless tooth may now be saved because of technical and biological advances. With the emerging knowledge regarding complications associated with dental implants, keeping teeth has become more important. This hands-on program will look at how the philosophy in dentistry is shifting back to one of saving teeth versus placing implants because of the progress in regenerative materials and techniques. Participants learn and practice surgical principles involved in regenerative bone around natural teeth on models. No pre-requisite.
