Doctors and Staff please register for a presentation on Management of Mucogingival Defects with Dr. Jason Naud, DDS, MS.

The discussion will cover the etiology and risk factors for gingival recession defects.  We will also discuss determinants of successful outcomes.  The various treatment modalities will be covered including flap design and graft selection.  We will also develop a treatment algorithm to help understand case selection in order to achieve predictable outcomes.  Moreover, we will review the various treatment philosophies and help identify appropriate clinical indications to provide patient specific care.

We will close with a discussion on soft tissue site development for implants.  The topics will cover indications for soft tissue augmentation and clinical outcomes.  Various modalities will be compared with emphasis on ease of use and appropriate case selection.  Flap design and material selection will be discussed to aid in achieving predictable outcomes while minimizing the risk of complications.
