Why Study Perio?
Protect yourself Against Litigation
Neglected periodontal disease is one of the leading cause of litigation against dentists in the UK today. Lack of periodontal knowledge and skills among dental practitioners can lead to undiagnosed periodontal disease which continues to cause bone destruction around teeth. Once it reaches its advanced stages then it leads to devastating outcomes for the patient and the dentist.
At Perio Matters we tailor our courses for you so that you can protect yourself against the growing litigation culture. We provide you with the knowledge and skills that you need to perform dentistry in a safe, ethical and effective way. We will provide step by step practical training so that you can immediately incorporate what you learn in your clinical pratice.
CPD for Dentists
Things are changing at a rapid rate in dentistry with the large amounts of research taking place worldwide. It often becomes difficult to keep up to date with best practices. Our periodontal experts are dedicated to providing you with the most up-to-date clinical and academic knowledge. This offers you a and easy way to access the most up-to-date and relevant literature without having to sift through thousands of articles yourself to find the relevant ones. Our evidence based teaching methods will mean that you will feel assured that you have the relevant knowledge to practice the highest standard of dentistry required from us.
Perio is the Foundation for Basic and Advanced Dentistry
Stabilising periodontal disease is the keystone to providing further dental care. Without a stable periodontium any treatment you undertake is likely to fail. Periodontally affected teeth can be lost if the disease progresses and as a result it can compromise your restorative/prosthodontic treatment plan.
Having the ability to stabilise the periodontal disease is absolutely crucial prior to providing implant dentistry. The presence of periodontal disease drastically increases the risk of failure of dental implants. Periodontally susceptible patients can very easily develop peri-implantitis which is notriously difficult to treat. Our courses will give you an insight into how such patient can be managed to enable you to provide successful implant treatment.
The Art of Soft Tissue Manipulation
Having the ability to manipulate soft tissue around teeth and implants can transform your cosmetic dentistry results from average to outstanding.
Periodontal surgery can act as a valuable tool for you to deliver prosthodontic and cosmetic outcomes. Procedures like crown lengthening surgery and mucogingival grafting surgery can enable teeth restorations where it may not have been otherwise possible. It can help transform unrestorable teeth to restorable. For the more cosmetically driven patients providing a fine tuned gingival margin can often be the final touch which delights your patient.
See our image gallery for examples of how periodontal surgery has enhanced the final result for our patients.
