Periodontal Surgery

Periodontal flap surgery very often follows a course of scaling and root-planning. It aims to improve access and visibility of persisting deep pockets allowing better debridement and leads to improved periodontal health.

This course is aimed at general practitioners wishing to enhance their clinical and surgical skills and increase confidence in undertaking this procedure. The emphasis of this course is on practical techniques for use on their own patients and what outcomes can be expected.
