PERD602 ADVANCED PERIODONTOLOGY-II 4 4 2 6
The aim of this course is learning the interactions between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases. At the end of the course, students will understand that the mouth is part of the body and that it can be affected by or involved in systemic pathological changes in the body. They learn that the effects of periodontal inflammation and/or infection as a focal source of infection are not limited to the oral cavity, but may be a risk marker for disease complications in many organs and systems. They know the bidirectional relationship between periodontal diseases and systemic diseases like diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, etc.
PERD604 SURGICAL PERIODONTAL TREATMENT 4 4 2 6
This course aims to enable students to learn diagnosing periodontal diseases, collecting clinical data, and planning proper treatment. The students will understand what needs to be done within the scope of surgical treatment and its importance. They will recognize hand tools and devices used in surgical periodontal therapy. They will have information about bone defects, bone regeneration, bifurcation defects, surgical periodontal treatment methods, and graft materials. The students will have ability to assimilate the current approaches of surgical periodontal treatments and to treat patients who come to the clinic within this framework. They will be able to determine the suitability of bone loss areas for bone regeneration in addition to surgical treatment.
PERD606 ORAL IMPLANTOLOGY 3 2 2 4
The aim of the oral implantology course is to provide students with general knowledge about basic oral implantology and to provide them with the competence to make decisions with a large number of patient treatment methods and possibilities, considering implant surgery and implant-supported prostheses. The student evaluates all aspects of the implant site, application and maintenance. As a result, students will have a comprehensive knowledge of the mechanical, surgical and antimicrobial treatment of peri-implant diseases. They will learn implant-supported prosthesis applications. Implant types, materials, surface properties of the implant; Peri-implant tissues, patient evaluation and selection, diagnostic methods, treatment plan, soft and hard tissue preparation, implant surgery, prosthetic approaches on implants, peri-implant diseases and treatments are within the scope of the course.

PERD607 ADVANCED ORAL IMPLANTOLOGY TECHNIQUES 4 4 2 6
The aim of this course is to provide contemporary information about advanced oral implantology techniques such as soft and hard tissue grafting approaches. The students will be able to plan the treatment of patients with multiple implant needs and full mouth removable or fixed implant supported prosthesis. They will have information and be able to decide implant placement and implant loading times. After the given detailed information, they will have ability to plan and solve the complex cases that having moderate to advanced bone deficiency. The students will understand the multidisciplinary approach to decide when to do augmentation at the time of implant placement or before implant placement.
PERD609 PERI-IMPLANTITIS TREATMENT 4 4 2 6
The aim of this course is to make the students are able to diagnose and treat peri-implantitis disease. At the end of the course, the students will be able to diagnose peri-implantitis with proper methods, to classify and treat the disease according to current classifications. They will learn radiological and clinical findings of peri-implantitis, the etiological factors of the disease, and treatment methods for peri-implantitis treatment. They will have a multidisciplinary perspective for the treatment of peri-implantitis by eliminating etiological factors and information about the prognosis of the affected dental implant before and after treatment. The students will be able to make alternative prosthetic and surgical treatment plans in case of loss of dental implant. They will gain theoretical and practical competence on cases.
PERD611 SEMINAR 0 0 0 5
The aim of this course is to examine the current information about periodontology. By giving a certain subject to the student, it is ensured that the student conducts detailed literature research on this subject. The student summarizes the collected information by filtering, shares it with the audience through oral presentation, opens it for discussion and concludes it. Thus, improving students' skills within the scope of scientific research and publication activities to increase presentation skills and competencies in using audio-visual tools. Students will have the ability to review and evaluate the literature, to teach the rules of writing thesis, and to develop the student's ability to present a scientific study. In addition, at the end of this course, students develop themselves in analyzing and interpreting the findings of scientific studies and identifying their deficiencies in the literature.
