Understanding soft tissue biotype and its impact on instrument selection
Dental Hygienists & Therapists Program
Friday 3rd May
1:45 PM - 2:30 PM

Consequence of infection control may be shrinkage of the soft tissue with obvious aesthetic impairment. In the past soft tissue contraction was generally considered necessary to achieve periodontal health. Now days gingival recession can be partially prevented, diagnosing the tissues characteristics, the biotype and selecting the proper instruments, in terms of size and shape, according, to minimize the local trauma and the gingival recession.

Learning Outcomes:

  •  To learn procedures that allow to classify the periodontal biotype.
  • To learn how to choose the proper instruments in each clinical case.

  • Discuss clinical cases with severe periodontitis in which the biotype classification in crucial for an appropriate treatment
