Minimizing Esthetic and Functional Risk- through pre Orthodontic Periodontal Augmentation and Restorative Periodontal Augmentation / Hands-on Treatment planning for the Entire Dental Team – Fairfield County Dental Club
April 28 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Speaker: Colin Richman, DMD
Dr. Richman, originally from South Africa is a practicing periodontist in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the leading periodontal authority on combined periodontal and orthodontic management of complex orthodontic cases, having done more surgically facilitated orthodontic treatment than any periodontist in the United States. He will present on two different but related relevant subjects. The morning presentation will focus on Minimizing Esthetic and Functional Risk through POPA (pre Orthodontic Periodontal Augmentation) And PREPA (pre Restorative Periodontal Augmentation). These innovative dental procedures, combining regenerative periodontal therapy with orthodontic treatment, enable the dentist to minimize potential iatrogenic risk factors associated with orthodontic therapy. Favorably positioned teeth, plus an enhanced muco-gingival complex, facilitates ideal and predictable esthetics and function. The afternoon presentation is entitled Interactive Hands-on Treatment planning for the Entire Dental Team. Dentists and will be provided with comprehensive records of a patient presenting with complex dental problems. The class will be divided into groups of 5-8 dentists with each group establishing a treatment plan utilizing various scenarios. These sessions will be quite thought provoking. Each office will be allowed to bring one dental hygienist to the meeting. It will be a great day.
