Great presentation that is so relevant and useful in providing patients with long term health when the perio-restorative interface has been compromised. So many patients could benefit from this type of approach. Thanks for sharing.

James Wardner - (1/10/2016 8:07 PM)

This was great in that it was repeat - repeat - repeat and as repetition is the best teacher, it was very useful. I think a video of the procedure, even if short, would have made it even better. But thanks, it was useful as so many are not.

This is a great lecture in a day where everyone seems to extract these teeth. Dr. Melker shows us how to save and retain periodontally involved teeth. Many thanks Dr. Salama

William Yant - (6/22/2014 12:09 PM)

Dr. Melkler, Thanks for a wonderful lecture, like most of XP info this was very relevant, will be treating a patient Monday morning armed with better info and techniques, thanks again Bill Yant

I want to thank Dental XP for their kind invitation to speak in from of such an exceptional group of Specialists. After 4 days of incredible presentations the room was still full. Incredible!

Daniel Melker - (12/27/2012 1:35 PM)

Bassam, you are correct BS is a way to spare the bone where possible. It is only used when doing perio-restorative where there are cores and provisionals. Now every now and then I will shape a furcation without a crown to be placed. I will send you the core info shortly.

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.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment Premium Member Content

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.

Bacterial Penetration of Gingiva in the Adult Beagle Dog with Periodontitis
Invasion of gingival tissues by bacteria is thought to be a major factor in development of periodontal lesions. Morphologic studies have revealed bacteria within the pocket epithelium, gingival connective tissues, alveolar bone, and oral epithelium. The current studies are intended to determine whether they are present in healthy and diseased tissues and to identify the microbial source. Five beagle dogs with naturally occurring periodontitis were fed a soft diet. Two quadrants of the dentition…
