An outstanding series that I will definately recommend to my colleagues. I often discuss with my patients - why do you discount bleeding gums when brushing your teeth as nothing to be alarmed about? If you brush your hair and have a bleeding scalp wouldn't you run to your MD?

Interdisciplinary Strategies For The Esthetic Reconstruction of Complex Cases Premium Member Content

Interdisciplinary Strategies For The Esthetic Reconstruction of Complex Cases
Predictable esthetic management of the compromised anterior dentition with dental implants constitutes one of the most difficult challenges in contemporary dentistry, especially in scenarios where soft and hard tissue defects are present. Traditional surgical approaches will often result in peri-implant soft tissue disfigurement. Although the use of pink restorative materials has been proposed to disguise soft tissue deficits, maintenance issues and esthetic limitations remain a concern, particularly as it pertains to high smile cases. This presentation will focus on the predictable esthetic management of high-risk and compromised sites, demonstrating the use of contemporary interdisciplinary strategies for the treatment of peri-implant esthetic dilemmas and complications.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.
