Optimal Perio Techniques for General Practice

Product Details

You have patients that can benefit from the addition of periodontal procedures in your practice!  Examples of simple periodontal procedures include bone grafting, ridge preservation, crown lengthening, periodontal flap surgery, and mucogingival surgery.  Incorporation of many of these procedures will increase the success of subsequent implant placement, promote retention of natural dentition where possible, and improve overall gingival esthetics.  Join Jon & Kevin for this highly practical, immediately useful hands-on periodontal course!
