Non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT), along with motivation and correct home care techniques, is the mainstay to periodontal treatment. Managing clinically healthy patients, patient`s implants, as well as patient`s who present with periodontal conditions in practice has evolved over the last several decades, moving towards more Minimally Invasive Non-Surgical Therapies (MINST) . This hands-on clinical training workshop is a masterclass. The session will provide a revision of the current GBT protocol, based on individual patient diagnosis and risk assessment to achieve optimal results, and provide guidance and demonstrations on the state-of-the-art technologies the AIRFLOW®, PERIOFLOW®, and PIEZON®. This workshop also offers information and tips on device care and maintenance. This half day workshop is suitable for the dental team including the dentist with an interest in periodontology and in the technology, the dental hygienist, and the oral health therapists.
