Master Course in Periodontology

Dr. Anton Sculean
Madrid, February 9 and 10, 2024
· 09/02/2024


The aim of this course is to provide the general practitioner and the specialist with a comprehensive, evidence based concept aiming to succesfully manage periodontally compromised patients. During the two days, a treatment concept based on the scientific evidence from the last three decades will be provided. The concept will address the most important aspects related to the treatment of periodontal and peri-implant diseases including diagnosis, nonsurgical, antibiotic/antiseptic, surgical, regenerative and plastic-esthetic surgery using the Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel (MCAT), the Laterally Closed Tunnel (LCT) or the combined MCAT + LCT technique using autogenous tissue or soft tissue replacement materials such as the recently introduced Hydrated Dermal Matrix (HADM) (Novomatrix).

Treatment concepts for peri-implantitis and recession coverage at implants will round up the course content. Case presentations and case discussions will illustrate on when and how the scientific evidence can be included in the overall treatment philosophy helping the clinician to immediately implement the aquired knowledge in the daily practice.
