To get to know the classical literature, critically evaluate scientific papers in the field of periodontics, become familiar with classical articles and perform an in-depth review of articles published in the past 20 years. The programme will also expand the surgical part to the regenerative and mucogingival surgery. The students will participate as listener.
- Scaling and root planing seminar: Understanding and use of the different types of curettes and their sharpening.
- Surgical seminar: Practice incisions, different surgical techniques and sutures. Regenerative surgery and mucogingival surgery
- Clinical seminar:Discuss and assess the diagnosis, treatment plan and hygienic- and surgical-phase treatment performed by students.
- Clinical practicals in patients: Treatment of patients with moderate and advanced chronic periodontitis. Performance of the hygienic and surgical phase and interdisciplinary treatment with other departments.
The surgical treatment includes the resective, the regenerative and the mucogingival surgery if required by the patients attended by the students.
Courses and conferences
Research and Conferences: Students must reserve time to study documentation, literature, clinical case presentations, etc. The presentation of a communication and/or poster at conferences and/or symposia is compulsory.
