Abstract:Clinical skills required for providing periodontal therapy most effectively and efficiently may be enhanced and strengthened by viewing all instruments as a total unit rather than as separate entities. This hands on workshop will present innovative instrument designs and solutions driven approaches to meet the inevitable challenges of mechanically treating “invisible” root surfaces and examine the design characteristics of a variety of hand instruments and are listed for appropriate skill levels.
Participants will be able to review current clinical instrumentation practice in a safe environment, review positioning for optimal clinical technique and reduction of stress injuries, and be able to “test drive” a variety of instruments that will be available and be shown the correct clinical technique for their use.
This workshop will provide practical principles for confronting clinical complications with dexterity, skill and confidence. The appropriate selection of hand instruments will help to maximise performance, minimise stress, and increase the clinician’s professional satisfaction level. Maintenance of instruments by maintaining a sharp cutting edge will be reviewed for maximum patient comfort and operator efficiency
