CE 1: Acellular Dermal Matrix Grafts for Root Coverage Procedures
Review of Products and Introduction of a New Technique
Jennifer T. Silc, DDS, MS; and Paul S. Petrungaro, DDS, MS
The first CE article discusses drawbacks associated with conventional root coverage approaches, explains the benefits of acellular dermal matrix grafts, and introduces a laser-assisted technique that can enhance success. The authors explain the benefits of using acellular dermal matrix grafts versus conventional subepithelial connective tissue grafting and demonstrate a laser-assisted vestibuloplasty approach that helps prevent recurrent recession after surgical correction.

CE 2: Effects of Occlusion on Periodontal Wound Healing
Ann M. Decker, DMD; and Hom-Lay Wang, DDS, MSD, PhD
This second CE article discusses how traumatic occlusion affects the biological system through a series of events that induces an aseptic inflammatory response and bone resorption. If traumatic occlusion is adjusted, even large inflammatory events such as replantation of an avulsed tooth can be successful. This article reviews the biological and clinically relevant effects of occlusal forces on periodontal structures and wound healing.
