KIWI Method Hands-on Workshop:

Minimally Invasive Autogenous Gingival Grafting
April 26, 2019
1:30 pm โ€“ 4:30 pm
  • George Merijohn, D.D.S.

Gingival recession presents challenging treatment considerations dentists face every day. Fear of postsurgical pain, bleeding and sometimes unpredictable results associated with conventional grafting surgery can cause dentists to hesitate in treatment. In this workshop, learn minimally-invasive, practical and proven gingival grafting for root coverage and non-root coverage. It’s a proven approach used to train postdoctoral periodontal residents in precision grafting techniques.

Course # (F1920) is a prerequisite for this workshop.

Learning Objectives:
1) Understand practical recipient site preparation for root coverage and non-root coverage outcomes.
2) Learn special techniques for minimally invasive graft harvest from the tuberosity and premaxilla palatal zone.
3) Understand predictable suturing techniques and time-tested postop protocols.

Course Number: F1921
