Pikos Symposium 2022 – Dr. Giulio Rasperini

New challenge: Regeneration of the Interdental Periodontal Tissue Attachment

In today’s dentistry the aesthetic demand from the patients has become the main challenge in Periodontology. Besides the obvious functional results is now important to achieve aesthetic success, particularly in the anterior areas, where the expectations of the patients are higher.

Understanding the biology of the periodontal wound healing, will lead to respect and protect the healing phase.  The New Classification of Periodontal Disease is focused on the interdental Clinical Attachment level. The Aim of Classic Periodontal reconstructive surgical techniques is the regeneration of the infrabony defects or the root coverage in case of gingival recessions. Recently the evolution of the regenerative plastic surgery makes possible to treat simultaneously both.

So, the develop of regenerative clinical and biological concepts, biomaterials and new surgical techniques during the last years, makes possible to answer to the patient’s demands and regenerate the interdental attachment of compromised teeth with predictable long-term results.

Learning Objectives:
• How to classify the interproximal periodontal defects and papillae loss
• How to plan the treatment of the interproximal attachment loss
• The most recent surgical techniques and biological concepts in interproximal attachment gain
• Which biomaterials to use in different scenarios

Dr. Rasperini is also presenting an optional hands-on workshop on Wednesday, October 5, 2022
