Session III: Defining and Implementing “Definitive” Periodontal and Peri-Implant Treatment in Specific Patient Groups: Critical Advances for the Practicing Clinician


Incorporating “Definitive” Periodontal Disease and Peri-Implant Disease Treatment into Daily Practice


Paul S. Rosen
Thursday, June 6
3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon A-D)

The goal in clinical practice continues to be achieving “definitive” endpoints that allow our patients with either periodontal or peri-implant disease to recapture optimal health, comfort, and function for their teeth and/or dental implants. Recent evidence has introduced innovative changes for treatment that in some instances have been radical departures from what we thought was possible. At the forefront of these efforts are advances in the arena of regenerative medicine to rescue teeth and dental implants with a poor or hopeless outlook. This lecture will explore how regeneration continues to be at the forefront of periodontics and dental implant care for predictable and “definitive” success; outline the advantages that biologics play in regeneration; discuss the advantages of using grafts containing mesenchymal stem cells; and present the step-by-step procedure for decontaminating the surface of an implant with peri-implantitis that will facilitate regeneration.


Paul S. Rosen, DMD, MS, maintains a full-time private practice in Yardley, Pennsylvania, and has an appointment as clinical associate professor of periodontics at the University of Maryland Dental School.

Dr Rosen has authored or co-authored a number of articles and chapters in textbooks on periodontal regeneration, implants, and interrelated orthodontic-periodontal care. Dr Rosen’s research helped gain FDA clearance for a novel approach to regeneration using a flowable polymer barrier. Dr Rosen has lectured nationally and internationally on the subject of regeneration.
