Challenged by subgingival margin placement? Want to manipulate gingival tissue with ease? Ready to add value-based procedures to your practice? Subgingival margin placement can be a challenge for the restorative dentist, including patient satisfaction with esthetic appearance. We overcome the limitations by gaining the confidence to provide an array of straight forward surgical procedures with patient comfort and acceptance as a priority. In this hands-on workshop, experience manipulation of gingival and boney margins to obtain satisfying restorative results with defining end points and creating essential biologic width. We incorporate all techniques from traditional flaps to today’s micro-invasive dental lasers. Billing and coding are reviewed to ensure effective reimbursement with case acceptance.
