Clinical Decision-Making in the Periodontally Compromised Patient: Current Periodontal and Prosthodontic Perspectives

Dr. Leyvee Cabanilla-JacobsDr. Kyle HoggSpeakers: Kyle Hogg, DDS; Leyvee Cabanilla Jacobs, DDM, DDS, MSD

Weekend Fee: $339/Member DDS; $195/Staff and Life Member Retired DDS; $439/Nonmember DDS

One of the most common dilemmas that dentists and patients alike face in clinical practice is whether to treat, maintain, or extract a tooth. Although implants are highly predictable and have become an integral part of oral rehabilitation, they are not immune to complications. In many instances, management requires elaborate treatment planning with potential pre-implant surgical treatments. On the other hand, tooth retention can potentially involve complex interdisciplinary treatment. The aim of this lecture is to present an algorithm that will address clinical deductive reasoning, based on the scientific literature.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize the most significant prosthodontic and periodontal factors that can influence the decision to save or extract a tooth.
  • Identify potential complications associated with implant therapy that needs to be taken into consideration when deciding whether to save or replay a tooth with an implant.

About the Speakers … Dr. Kyle Hogg graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2004 and went on to further his studies at the University of Florida College of Dentistry in an AEGD program focused on the surgical placement of implants and prosthodontics.

Dr. Leyvee Lynn Cabanilla Jacobs is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. She is an adjunct associate professor at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry, and has lectured extensively at the national and international level and has several publications and abstracts in the field of periodontics and implant dentistry.
