Below are some of the lectures at the EVDF.
The presentation is intended to describe the treatment of periodontal pockets by means close and open root planing with application of a perioceutic such as doxycycline and clindamycin, bone graft application and guided tissue regeneration, focusing on clinical applications and the surgical technique.
The periodontal tissues are the gingiva, the cementum, the alveolar bone, and the periodontal ligament. Periodontal disease is characterized by vertical or horizontal bone loss with formation of supra- or infra-bony pockets, and attachment loss. The periodontal sulcus in dogs is about 1-3 mm depth. Periodontal debridement including, removal of subgingival plaque, gingival curettage and root planing can improve attachment of the periodontal tissues, decrease the depth of the sulcus and maintain good oral health. In other cases, bone grafting with or without membrane will be necessary in order to have alveolar bone augmentation or guided tissue regeneration.
