About this Event

Dr. James Dawson, Specialist Periodontist- Gingival Recession - Soft Tissue is the Issue

Gingival recession is highly prevalent in all populations and has known direct causes and predisposing factors. Gingival recession can cause root sensitivity, increased risk of dental caries and may be un-aesthetic. We all teach our patients how to reduce the direct causes of recession, but what can be done to address the predisposing factors? This lecture will cover indications for treatment as well as the various treatment techniques available including; pedicle flaps, coronal advancement flaps, tunnel preparation, as well as free grafts (connective tissue and free gingival grafts). Nowadays there are various biomaterials available, the indications for their use will also be covered.

BLIS Technologies - Promoting oral health through simple probiotic intervention

In this talk, I will begin by presenting the concept of using probiotics for health. This will be followed by a description into the interesting origins of Blis Technologies and how it became the leading company developing orally targeted probiotics. This talk will specifically focus on the science and technology we have developed to demonstrate how oral probiotics can be used for both dental and oral health (halitosis). Further information will also be presented on how our approach can be applied to other oral diseases too.
