Using the surgical microscope for improving periodontal and implant-related regenerative outcomes is happening. Increased magnification (10 to 25x) and confocal illumination make possible precise incision, soft tissue reflection and management, complete surface detoxification and detailed suturing. These delicate procedures can lead to improved wound stability and early revascularization, which may improve regenerative outcomes and reduce postoperative morbidity. This course will focus on the principles and rationale of using the surgical microscope for periodontal and guided bone regeneration, supplemented by case demonstrations.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the paradigm shift in surgical dentistry toward tissue regeneration and minimally invasive procedures
- Familiarize basic wound healing principles and enhanced healing from microsurgery (3) List the indications for performing periodontal and implant microsurgery
Meet the Speaker: Hsun-Liang Chan, DDS, MS
Clinical Associate Professor of Dentistry – Assistant Program Director, Periodontics Graduate Program
Dr. Chan finished periodontal specialty training with a prestigious award, Sigurd P. Ramfjord Award for Excellence in Graduate Periodontics, at the University of Michigan in 2011. Since graduation, he has been teaching as a full-time clinical faculty at the University of Michigan. He teaches topics related to periodontal disease and implant therapy to predoctoral students and graduate periodontal residents in the clinics and in the classroom. He also conducts clinical research focusing on minimally invasive periodontal and implant surgeries using advanced imaging, e.g. 3D dental ultrasound, CBCT scans, and digital treatment planning. He received several other awards from the nation’s authority in periodontics, the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), including Fellowship to the Institute for Teaching & Learning (2011), Abram and Sylvia Chasens Teaching and Research Fellowship (2011), Nevins Teaching and Clinical Research Fellowship, the AAP foundation (2013), Outstanding Teaching and Mentoring in Periodontics (2015) and AAP Sunstar Innovation Award (2018). He is also listed as a finalist of the Richard J. Lazzara Fellowship In Advanced Implant Surgery (2011). He serves as a committee member in different capacities in major periodontal and dental implant organizations, e.g. AAP, Academy of Osseointegration, Midwest Society of Periodontology and Michigan Periodontal Association, etc. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and conference abstracts/presentations related to periodontics and implant therapy. Dr. Chan is also the Director of the “Periodontal and Implant Microsurgery Academy (PiMA)” which offers three levels of courses with various time commitments and depth of training for interested individuals with all ranges of experience with microsurgery.
