    • “How Crown Lengthening WILL Enhance Your Restorative Results” and Beating Up On Your Patient’s Periodontal Disease with Minimally Invasive Antimicrobial Treatment” JAMES KOHNER, DDS

      May 3, 2019
      REGISTRATION-FORM-May 2019 Kohner James Kohner DDS Dr. Kohner is a leading specialist in the periodontal world of dental health. He is an expert in the management of periodontal infection using non-surgical methods, as well as being current on the latest procedures relating to surgical therapy. He has presented at the American Academy of Periodontology meetings for many years, and presented lectures at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. He now teaches for the Perio Institute (since 2003), and is a current member of both the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Periodontology, plus is a professional member of the National Speakers Association. With over 35 years in the private practice of Periodontics and more than 20 years teaching, Dr. Kohner has the experience to make his courses meaningful. How Crown Lengthening WILL Enhance Your Restorative Results This course covers methods, limitations, and benefits of both esthetic and functional crown lengthening. You WILL leave with a better understanding of these principles, and be able help patients enjoy better and more predictable results. These principles apply to both posterior and anterior teeth, and both will be covered. Participants will see how crown margin proximity to soft tissue can adversely impact their restorative results, including a better understanding of why tissues are red and sore at times. Discussion points include making diagnostic decisions regarding Crown Lengthening from both radiographic and clinical perspectives. Also included is a detailed discussion of Biologic Width and how that impacts restorative decisions, including how to improve “Gummy Smile” issues. Multiple case examples are shown from both radiographic and clinical perspectives, starting with initial evaluation through the surgery and final completion. Learning objectives: 1. See how to achieve predictable impressions every time 2. Understand Biologic Width and its role in obtaining predictable results 3. Learn why crowns come loose and how to prevent it 4. Understand causes of red gum tissue around crown margins 5. Diagnose esthetic and functional crown lengthening Beating up on your Patients Periodontal Disease with Minimally Invasive Antimicrobial Treatment This presentation will discuss a scientifically sound, and evidence based, approach for effective management of moderate to advanced periodontal disease using minimally invasive surgical intervention, or at times using non-surgical methods. Both indications will be explained. It shows how adding chemotherapeutic methods to specifically target the periodontal bacteria will allow for successful management of everything from very advanced cases that might otherwise have been treated only with extraction, to infected cases you might traditionally treat with non-surgical methods like SCRP. In doing so, results will be improved over classic surgical or SCRP methods which may not kill all bacteria at the diseased sites. These innovative methods will be explained by outlining both in-office procedures, as well as specific anti-microbial procedures for the patient to do at home. When combined, they yield predictable clinical results for previously failing cases as well as those treated for the first time. Treatment will be illustrated with clinical photos and radiographs. Cases will be shown and literature quoted to validate the procedure. This topic will be of interest for both Doctors and Hygienists. Learning Objectives: 1. See why Periodontal Surgery or SCRP may fail. 2. Learn to manage failed and failing cases. 3. Improve diagnostics with bacterial culturing 4. Learn role of patient care at home as an integral part of treatment REGISTRATION-FORM-May 2019 Kohner
