The treatment of multi-rooted teeth demonstrating inter-radicular loss of the periodontium continues to present a significant challenge. The application of the principles of tissue engineering has been applied to the treatment of class-11 furcations with predictable
success, but there is still the need to consider osseointegration as an alternative. This program will explore the decision-making process for both treatment modalities.
• Learn to develop an accurate classification, diagnosis and prognosis for teeth with furcation involvement.
• Discuss the principles of tissue engineering and biometric parameters of growth factors.
• Understand the decision-making algorithm associated with treatment of the diseased furcation vs. osseointegration.
