Course Summary:

With the paradigm shift that periodontal disease is now considered an inflammatory disease due to the host response to the microbial challenge makes powered instrumentation the “gold standard” in treatment. The new nonsurgical approach to periodontal treatment focuses on biofilm disruption and conservation of tooth structure rather than calculus and cementum removal. Join us in this workshop to discover a whole new world without hand instrumentation! 

The learning objectives are:

  • Recall the fundamental characteristics of each periodontal disease.
  • Describe the benefits of powered vs. hand instrumentation.
  • Apply the different types of powered Inserts.
  • Determine powered instrumentation during nonsurgical periodontal treatment planning & implementation.
  • Prepare strategies to reach “endpoint”.
  • Assess debridement skills with powered instrumentation.
  • Select appropriate ergonomics while using high volume suction during powered instrumentation.
