Advanced Ultrasonic Instrumentation in Periodontal Management: Creating Success in Today’s Dental Practice. A Hands-On Workshop


New Course

Leave traditional root planing behind and move into a new era of periodontal care.

Course Description

Micro-thin ultrasonic instrumentation decreases fatigue and enhances efficiency with new topical anesthetics and techniques to manage difficult access, including the pesky furcation! Incorporating power driven instrumentation into the periodontal component of the practice provides a time effective adjunct to definitive root planing and the biofilm removal process of the periodic supportive maintenance.

Enhance your armamentarium in treating today’s initial and recare periodontal patient where surgical therapy may not be feasible. By incorporating a combination of both ultrasonic instrumentation in tandem with air glycine technologies, the participant is taken to new heights in providing a synergistic level of care.

Course Objectives

  • Determine which device will work best for you to achieve effective results
  • Explore techniques to remove biofilm and calculus in the least accessible areas, such as furcas, and how to enhance patient comfort with thin tip technology
  • Learn power driven instrumentation and how to incorporate it into the periodontal component of the practice
  • Understand how to provide local anesthesia without mandibular blocks and painful palatal injections
  • Provide ergonomic techniques to decrease physical fatigue and enhance time efficiency
