Surgical Access or Laser Therapy to Treat Periodontitis

2 Hours 18 Minutes
Monday Session
Program Track: Treatment of Inflammatory Periodontal Diseases

Moderator: Timothy P.Walsh
Speakers: Myron Nevins, Lloyd V. Tilt

Surgical access is critical to debride the root surface and eliminate the infected
soft tissue. The objectives of periodontal surgery are removal of etiologic
factors, pocket depth reduction and regeneration of the periodontium. This
program will compare and contrast the treatment of adult periodontitis
utilizing osseous surgery with periodontal regeneration and laser periodontal
surgery (LANAP). Each technique will be presented by master clinicians
showing the evidence-based research documenting their approach.
