The participants are taught a systematic structure of a periodontal treatment concept. The Aachen Periodontal Therapy Concept (APTC) serves as the basis for an individual concept that each participant can implement considering his or her individual practice conditions. The basis is a diagnosis based on the current classification of periodontal diseases, which then determines the therapy sections “initial therapy”, “non-surgical therapy”, “surgical therapy” and “supportive therapy”.
In this module, the possibilities of non-surgical therapy are to be compared and practiced in practical exercises. In addition to the classical instrumentation, alternative possibilities such as the use of sound/ultrasound systems and laser instrumentation will be discussed. Adjuvant procedures as well as drug therapy approaches are also in focus.
