2015 Periodontics Courses



Periodontal Instrumentation

Course overview

Clinical Skills required for providing periodontal therapy most effectively and efficiently may be enhanced and strengthened by viewing all instruments as a total unit rather than as separate entities.

This two-day 'hands on' workshop developed and presented by Robyn Watson RDH BSc MPA, presents innovative instrument designs and solution driven approaches to meet the inevitable challenges of mechanically treating “invisible’ root surfaces and examine the design characteristics of a variety of hand and ultrasonic instruments.

In 2015, we are taking this CE course on tour to

Participants will be able to review current clinical instrumentation practice in a safe environment, review ergonomics and hand positioning for optimal clinical technique and reduction of stress injuries, and be able to ‘test drive” a variety of instruments that will be available and be shown the correct clinical technique for the use. "Tools and Indices” for best practice assessment and treatment planning will be included.

The course will provide practical principles for confronting clinical complications with dexterity, skill and confidence. The appropriate selection of a combination of hand and ultrasonic instruments will help maximise performance, minimize stress, and increase the clinician’s satisfaction level.

Learning outcomes
  • Be able to recognise components of working posture and adapt hand and body positioning for healthy and safe clinical practice.
  • Understand the advantages and limitations of various explorer designs for optimal calculus detection.
  • Understand periodontal screening techniques that can be applied to treatment planning.
  • Demonstrate proper grasp, fulcrum adaption, insertion, angulation and activation of a variety of periodontal instruments.
  • Identify the factors influencing the selection of instruments including the nature, location and extent of deposit to be removed, the accessibility of the deposit or stain, and the topography of the tooth surface.
  • Identify and select the optimal ultrasonic tip design for supra and subgingival calculus removal using magnetostrictive or piezoelectric systems.
  • Be aware of sharpening techniques and feel confident with sharpening and maintaining instruments.

This one-day course will provide you with the knowledge to assist your patients. It is an overview of current, evidence-based treatment plans covering basic principles, systemic implications of periodontal disease, treatment planning and non-surgical through to surgical needs.

The relationship of periodontics with other areas of dentistry is a key issue in modern periodontics. In particular procedures to improve esthetics of restorative treatment and prevention of complications with dental implants will be discussed.
