Ti-MAX Periodontal Surgery Course

CDE Hours: 30
Tuition: $3,999 + HST
April 4-7, 2019

(All dentists must be registered with the RCDSO to be able to perform clinical treatment on patients. Additional fees apply for patient treatment)

Course Objectives

The Ti-Max Periodontal program is designed to give the participant a comprehensive understanding of the role of a healthy periodontium, an understanding of the microbial, anatomical and mechanical factors that damage the periodontium and how to identify these factors and take effective interceptive therapy to prevent further damage.

Participants will learn the materials and techniques to repair and regenerate the damaged periodontium using surgical and non-surgical therapies. The program offers an opportunity to perform surgical procedures on real patients.

You will learn:

  • The biology and physiology of the periodontium
  • Microbial, mechanical and anatomic causes of periodontal destruction
  • Surgical and non-surgical therapies to reduce, repair and reconstruct damage to the periodontium
  • Role of occlusion and periodontal health
  • Use of antimicrobials
  • Surgical techniques: connective tissue grafting, free gingival grafting, crown lengthening, biopsy, frenectomy, vestibuloplasty, gingivoplasty.
  • Hands-on training with real patients
