The session will also include discussion of using soft tissue substitutes to improve the outlines of soft tissue regenerative therapies. Dr. Martha Somerman from the NIDCR will provide opening remarks and address research opportunities in periodontal regeneration.

Educational Objectives:

  • Understand the current concepts in soft tissue periodontal regeneration
