Clinical outcomes following guided periodontal tissue and bone regeneration procedures heavily depend on surgical techniques and well-controlled wound healing. Defect management is a significant challenge due to several factors including deficiency in existing hard and soft tissues, limitations in blood supply, as well as difficulties in obtaining and maintaining wound closure. In addition, the need for a shorter healing period with less scaring and better esthetic outcomes is a driving force for innovations such as minimally invasive surgical techniques for regenerative procedures. This course aims to discuss surgical modalities used to improve periodontal tissue and bone regeneration clinical outcomes.
• Consider factors affecting clinical outcomes following periodontal tissue/bone regeneration surgeries.
• Integrate new surgical modalities in relation to flap designs, defect management, and wound closure.
• Comprehend short- and long-term clinical success of regenerative surgical procedures.
