EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- To improve patient care, Dr. Andres R.

Sanchez, board-certified periodontist in Eden Prairie, MN, will attend the upcoming continuing education (CE) course, "Implant-Related Soft Tissue Management: Contemporary Strategies for Biologic and Esthetic Long-Term Success." The course is taught by Dr. Otto Zuhr, a world-renowned periodontist. Focused on modern soft tissue treatment approaches, Dr. Zuhr will cover how to effectively correct receding gums and promote a healthy and balanced gumline that is harmonious with dental implants.

Dr. Zuhr, co-founder of the Hürzeler/Zuhr Dental Education Institute and assistant professor at the University of Frankfort, enjoys educating periodontists around the world. While the majority of his work and education takes place in Frankfurt, Germany, Dr. Zuhr frequently develops CE courses for periodontists worldwide. He is bringing this two-day course on implant-related soft tissue management to Batavia, IL May 14-15, 2019.

Having served as an assistant professor at Marquette University, Dr. Sanchez values education and seeks any opportunity to expand his knowledge and skill in his field. Dr. Sanchez specializes in dental implants and offers anywhere from one replacement tooth, to full arch dental implants for patients in Eden Prairie, MN. Dr. Sanchez completed advanced training in the All-on-4® dental implant technique and can provide patients with a full arch of new teeth in as little as one day.

In addition to dental implant services, Dr. Sanchez offers soft tissue gum grafting to promote heathy gums around a patient's teeth or dental implants. Gum tissue protects the delicate roots of teeth or implant posts. When gums recede, exposed tooth roots risk suffering from tooth decay, root decay, jawbone loss, and eventually, tooth loss. Receding gums around an implant can even lead to implant failure. Soft tissue gum grafting replaces the missing gum with a small amount of tissue removed from the roof of the mouth. Gum grafting procedures offered by a periodontal specialist can prevent gums from receding further, protect the tooth or implant, and even create a more youthful smile for patients.

Patients in Eden Prairie report a comfortable atmosphere and little pain with Dr. Sanchez's procedures. "I was nervous going into it, but the PerioWest staff was awesome," Maria, a patient who received gum grafting treatment from Dr. Sanchez explained. "The healing was wonderful. Really no pain at all."

During this course, Dr. Sanchez plans to enhance his knowledge on the biologic factors that influence the long-term stability of soft tissues as well as the latest treatment solutions to save failing dental implants. With enhanced gum grafting techniques, he hopes to prevent implant failure and help patients enjoy a healthy, complete smile for life.
