This course is a continuation of Introduction to Periodontics. Treatment modalities and the biologic basis for various therapeutic procedures will be discussed. The rationale and procedures for management of periodontal diseases will be presented in detail. The basic objective is to provide students with a sound background in all phases of periodontal therapy including assessment of clinical-tissue response and determination of treatment needs. Clinical experience will include the treating of patients possessing moderate-advance periodontal disease, which permits the student to utilize basic non-surgical and surgical procedures emphasized in the didactic material of this course. Emphasis shall be upon initial periodontal therapy and appropriate application of treatment modalities in a proper sequence. (Department of Periodontics)
