MOORESTOWN, N.J. (PRWEB) October 25, 2019

Esteemed periodontists, Drs. Mario Canal and Ben Calem of Canal Calem Periodontics, recently hosted a continuing education seminar titled, "Modern Anterior Composite Techniques," featuring guest speaker, Dr. Arthur Volker. The continuing education seminar was a part of the Pinnacle Dental Study Club, of which both doctors are co-directors. Passionate about oral health, Drs. Canal and Calem offer leading periodontal treatment in Moorestown and Medford, NJ, including treatments for gum disease and gingivectomy care, at their state-of-the-art practice.

"The objective of the Seattle Study Club is to promote high quality dental education here in South Jersey," says Dr. Calem. "When attendees walk out of the door, they are better educated, and they get it. They have a sense of accomplishment."

The event was the first of six continuing education seminars that the doctors have planned for the 2019-2020 study club members. The course is open to doctors and is part of the renowned Seattle Study Club, a national organization with over 250 affiliates. After completing all six seminars, participating doctors will earn 24.5 continuing education credits. This first seminar was held at The Mansion in Voorhees, NJ and featured keynote speaker, Dr. Arthur Volker, who lectured on "Modern Anterior Composite Techniques." The learning objectives of the seminar included:

  • Applying principles of smile design and analysis of proportions
  • Integrating dental aesthetics to smile design
  • Discussing composite options
  • Systematizing preparation protocols
  • Methodologies available for direct composites
  • Discussing polishing techniques

As periodontists, Drs. Canal and Calem specialize in the hard and soft tissues of the mouth. This often includes treatment for periodontal disease, or gum disease, an infection of the soft tissues that surround the teeth. If gums are not properly cleansed, the resulting gum disease can ultimately cause tooth loss.

Gum disease can be cleansed in a variety of ways depending on the patient's needs. Often osseous surgery or a gingivectomy is performed. A gingivectomy is a specialty treatment of the gums that is best performed by skilled periodontists. It involves the careful removal and reshaping of infected gum tissue. When gum disease cases are not as severe, timely gingivectomy care can cleanse infection from the gums and allow for proper reattachment to the tooth roots. As a dual benefit, a gingivectomy can also reshape the gums to a more aesthetic appearance.

Canal Calem Periodontics offers effective and experienced gum disease care for all stages of the disease. Additionally, patients can receive advanced dental care, including dental implant placement, bone grafting, tooth extractions and more, at this cutting-edge facility. Patients who require a gingivectomy or other advanced treatment can also benefit from sedation dentistry offered at the practice. Sedation options, like oral sedation and nitrous oxide, block sensations of discomfort and allow patients to feel relaxed.

Appointments can be made by calling 856-203-6588 for the Moorestown, NJ location or 609-534-5541 for the Medford, NJ location.
