Course Content

This clinical module is a continuation of module Clinical Course
Periodontology -2, but again at a more advanced level. All aspects of
module Clinical Course Periodontology -2 are continued. This clinical
module of one academic year (42 weeks) is especially focused on follow-
up treatment procedures after the initial periodontal therapy program.
Various types of periodontal surgical procedures will be performed on
patients with indications and need of further periodontal treatment.
This includes (but is not exhaustive) open flap debridements and
resective periodontal surgeries. Further regenerative surgical
procedures will be performed, mucosal and plastic surgery, furcation
tunnel procedures and root resections.
The student is trained in re-evaluation procedures after surgery,
including planning of maintenance therapy. Restorative and prosthetic
treatment planning (including the option of dental implants) is an
important part. Reporting of this secondary phase to the referring
dentist is also being trained and supervised.
Overall in this clinical module the student will build experience and
self-confidence for independent treatment planning and treatment
performance. Also in this module the student will learn the basics of
implant dentistry related to periodontal patients in need of extra
functional/chewing units.
