Dr. Kim will speak on two topics during this course.

1. Guided Bone Regeneration: Evidence, Techniques and Complications
Recently, there has been significant advancement in the field of bone grafting. Diverse research has been done, including animal/ human studies, and development of different techniques. Material-wise, we have numerous selection of particulates, membranes and biologic agents of choice. In this era, it is important to know the principle and rationale behind this technique, to achieve predictable outcome, ultimately increasing the patient’s well-being with implant placement. Moreover, meticulous tissue handling and flap management is another crucial factor for success. Unfortunately, complications can occur, and dealing with it can be troublesome. Accurate perception of patient’s anatomy has been made possible by recent advancement of 3D printing technology, with convenient method to fabricate model with free softwares and affordable 3D printers, even with multicolor. Dr. Kim has recently published this idea in JADA, and would like to share this idea.

2. Mucogingival Surgery: Evidence, Techniques and Complications
It is estimated that about 22.5% of the American population above the age of 29 have at least one tooth with recession of 3mm. By the age of 60, approximately 90% of Americans present with recession. Recently, there has been significant advancement in the field of mucogingival surgery to cope with recession. Many research shows that this is a very predictable and safe surgery, with long-term results. Dr. Kim would like to go over his experience in this field, with his cases, and he will share his knowledge without bias.
