3 CE Credits Course Description: The regeneration of tooth-supporting structures which have been lost as a consequence of periodontal diseas...More details
One of the ultimate goals of periodontal therapy is the regeneration of a functional attachment apparatus consisting of periodontal ligament, alveolar bone, and root cementum. While conventional periodontal surgical approaches have been successful for accessing root surfaces, reducing periodontal pockets, and improving periodontal form and architecture, these techniques have very limited potential in their ability to effect regeneration of periodontal structures lost due to the disease process. The regenerative potential of the periodontium has been well-documented. The concept of Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) was formally introduced to the dental community over 20 years ago. Fortunately since then, the field of periodontal regeneration has continued to evolve. As a result, a number of predictable surgical procedures have been developed which are widely used in clinical practice with tremendous success. Dr. Bhide’s lecture will help you appreciate the mechanisms, scope, indications, and surgical techniques used for periodontal regeneration around natural teeth. A special emphasis will be placed on biologics-mediated regenerative approaches involving the use of specialized matrix proteins and growth factors.
Dr. Vinay Bhide is a board certified Periodontist who provides the full scope of surgical periodontal and dental implant therapy. In addition to the conventional periodontal procedures such as pocket reduction and crown lengthening, Dr. Bhide has a special interest in esthetic and reconstructive periodontics; procedures involved include soft tissue grafting for correction of gingival recession, periodontal regeneration, and pre-prosthetic site development including alveolar ridge augmentation, maxillary sinus floor augmentation (both direct and indirect), and guided bone regeneration (GBR). Dr. Bhide earned his DDS from the University of Toronto in 2001, and subsequently completed a one-year internship at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. He completed his Master of Science and specialty training in Periodontology at the University of Toronto in 2005. Dr. Bhide is a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. Dr. Bhide is also a member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI). Dr. Bhide has published several articles in peer-reviewed journals. Lastly, Dr. Bhide is also involved in didactic and clinical teaching of periodontics at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels and has lectured nationally and internationally on various topics related to Periodontology.
