Stuart J. Froum
Friday, June 7
10:30 am - 11:30 am

This presentation will focus on various materials and techniques that have demonstrated the ability to regenerate lost attachment around teeth with advanced periodontal disease. The predictability and evidence-based factors influencing regeneration will be discussed. Based on these factors, the clinical situations in which regenerative therapy is indicated will be identified, and cases that demonstrate factors that are necessary to obtain successful treatment outcomes will be presented.
