Perio Master Clinic 2023 will focus on synergies between periodontology and orthodontics

The interaction, cooperation and commonalities between periodontology and orthodontics will be the focus of Perio Master Clinic 2023, the conference for dental clinicians that the EFP will organize in Antwerp, Belgium, on March 3-4, 2023.

Perio Master Clinic is a three-year practical conference which aims to perfect and update the technique and practical mastery of dental practitioners, so that they can better take care of the oral health of their patients but also so that they can treat the sequelae of periodontitis. efficiently and aesthetically. Under the theme “Peri-Ortho Synergy”, this edition of the conference will highlight a combined periodontal and orthodontic treatment approach, and on management with the additional use of implant dentistry.

Led by Conference Chair Peter Garmyn from Belgium and Scientific Chair Virginie Monnet-Corti from France, Perio Master Clinic 2023 features an innovative, dynamic and varied format. Each session focuses on a defined topic, in which a speaker will introduce the topic and highlight its key aspects. This will be followed by a “duo” presentation by a periodontist and an orthodontist with their complementary perspectives, and finally a brief presentation of a clinical case that corresponds to the subject of the session.

Additionally, Perio Master Clinic 2023 is poised to provide challenging training to participants, through its faculty of leading experts, who will teach the latest and most effective clinical techniques, based on sound scientific principles in periodontology, orthodontics and implant dentistry. For the best learning experience, places are strictly limited – registration is open on the EFP website now for interested clinicians.

Difficult limits

Multidisciplinary collaboration between periodontists and orthodontists is essential for the treatment of periodontitis in its advanced stages. Most patients with severe periodontitis need orthodontic treatment, but orthodontists are sometimes afraid to treat them, leading to frustration when successfully treated periodontitis patients cannot complete rehabilitation because implants do not cannot be placed without prior orthodontic treatment.

Today, most orthodontists would not treat cases of stage IV periodontitis. This is why it is essential to achieve a common understanding between periodontics and speech therapy professionals, which we hope to achieve with Perio Master Clinic 2023. It is not only about exchanging advice, tips and techniques – our goal is also to share visions, traditional boundaries, and find synergies between the two specialties, for the benefit of patients.”

Dr Peter Garmyn from Belgium

“We have forged a comprehensive scientific program with an exceptional list of speakers, all leading specialists in their field”, summarizes Professor Monnet-Corti, “so that delegates can feel inspired by the innovative format of the conference. and eager to apply the faculty’s expertise and vision to their daily practice. Treating complex cases of advanced periodontitis – right at the crossroads of periodontitis and ortho – is one of the most exciting areas of the dentistry today, and we will show that practitioners can still expect predictable, biological and esthetic, long-lasting treatment outcomes in these periodontal patients.”

EFP, world reference in periodontics

The European Federation of Periodontology (EFP, is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of periodontal science and the importance of gum health for oral health professionals and the audience. Its guiding vision is “Periodontal health for a better life”.

Founded in 1991, the EFP is a federation of 37 national periodontic societies representing more than 16,000 periodontists, dentists, researchers and oral health professionals in Europe and worldwide.
