It is a TEAM APPROACH program for Periodontist’s and their Restorative Dentist’s. Or Restorative Dentist’s and their Periodontist’s. In today’s world, ceramics, cosmetics and replacement of outlived restorative dentistry is the staple or our restorative practices. Exquisite restorative outcomes are a result of their relationship to the periodontium. This program will detail the the foundational principles and present a step by step cookbook process to ensure consistently excellent outcomes in treatment planning and treatment of everyday restorative dentistry.

The program is based on the treatment protocol of the placement of an adhesive core and provisional restoration, the referral to a Periodontist for treatment consisting of Biologic Shaping and soft tissue grafts followed by a maturation process of 16 weeks and the definitive restoration. This process is essential to long term stability of the hard and soft tissues as well as the teeth and cosmetic outcome. It is applied to the simplest of single tooth ceramic crowns as well as the most complex perio/restorative full mouth reconstructions.
