Meetings on June 8th & October 12th will be at Glidewell Labs in Irvine

June 8th, 2016




Over the last two decades, unlocking the keys to periodontal regeneration has been a major focus in dental research. As these keys have been identified, new approaches, in terms of both hard and soft tissue regeneration around teeth and implants, have become available to the clinician. These options include advancements in bone substitutes, barrier membranes, and, most importantly, growth factors. As our population ages, the demand for regenerative therapies will increase, as their expectations with regard to function and esthetics become more demanding.

Clearly, regenerative approaches will allow both enhanced function and esthetics as we move forward. This presentation will review some of those concepts, newer materials, and future considerations for reconstruction of hard and soft tissues.

We are honored to welcome:

Dr. Don Clem
