James Kohner, DDS

Dr. James Kohner’s presentations on Crown Lengthening and Soft Tissue Grafting techniques focus on restorative and esthetic principles that participants can utilize in their practices immediately.

His course on Minimally Invasive Antimicrobial Treatment will be of use for both Doctors and Hygienists in learning to better manage Periodontal Disease.

Dr. Kohner is a Periodontist, and a leader in the periodontal world of dental health. He is an expert in the management of periodontal infection using non-surgical methods, as well as being current on the latest procedures relating to surgical therapy.

With over 35 years in the private practice of Periodontics and more than 20 years teaching, Dr. Kohner has the experience to make his courses meaningful. If your goal is to learn about what it takes to deliver new procedures to your patients and improve your restorative results at the same time, then his programs will give you the information you need.


Creating Predictable Restorations

Faced with a cusp fractured below the gingiva? Prepping too far under the gingiva and not getting predictable impressions?
Planning esthetic restorations in the anterior and facing uneven tissue or a “Gummy Smile?

Crown extension is one of the most commonly required procedures in restorative dentistry, yet it is often underutilized. Enjoy an in-depth look at the evidence-based concepts and practical applications for Clinical Crown Lengthening and learn how to enhance predictability for your restorations and impressions. Gain the peace of mind that you are current in your treatment planning choices.

Techniques are discussed for both Functional and Esthetic Crown Lengthening, including: how to handle hard and soft tissues; proper surgical techniques; preservation of esthetics in the final tissue contours; and relocation of all structures that comprise the biologic width, namely: sulcus, junctional epithelium, connective tissue fibers, and bone.

This course includes hands-on exercises and many case illustrations, plus two video demonstrations of surgical technique. The full day workshop offers the opportunity to practice these procedures on pig jaws and anatomically correct models. The workshop is suitable for clinicians with or without surgical experience, who want to do some or most of their own crown extensions or just want to know more about the subject.

Learning Objectives

  • How to make predictable impressions every time
  • Why crowns come loose and how to prevent it
  • Methods that save chair time and increase profit
  • Causes of red gum tissue around margins
  • How to diagnose esthetic crown lengthening
  • To understand the Gummy Smile
  • How to coordinate surgery with restorative procedures

Workshop participants receive a workbook detailing the procedures.

Suggested Format: Full Day Lecture/Workshop or Half Day Lecture
Suggested Audience: Dentist

Enhancing Restorative Results

Embarrassed by recession around a recently placed crown in the esthetic zone? Faced with exposed roots that are esthetically undesirable or sensitive?

Learn evidence-based solutions for the soft tissue challenges you face on a daily basis, and how to cover those exposed roots and predictably stop recession. In this workshop, methods are illustrated to solve those problems and enhance your restorative results. Gain peace of mind knowing the gingiva stays in place by the margins of newly placed esthetic crowns.

Participants will experience an in-depth look at the concepts and practical applications for both Free Gingival and Connective Tissue Grafts.

Gingival Grafts create zones of attached gingiva where neither root coverage nor esthetics are factors. They provide a predictable way to stop recession from progressing.

Connective Tissue Grafts are useful for total root coverage in cases of severe recession, especially in the maxilla where esthetics are important.

The full day workshop offers the opportunity to practice both procedures on pig jaws.

This workshop is for dentists who want to offer soft tissue grafting or learn more about enhancing esthetic restorative results. The course includes hands-on exercises and many case illustrations, plus two surgical videos of the grafting procedure will be shown.

Learning Objectives

  • Diagnostic criteria for each graft
  • To gain root coverage
  • To predictably stop recession, or to prevent it in the esthetic zone
  • Step-by-step harvesting, placing and suturing
  • Step-by-step use of specialized instruments

Suggested Format: Full Day Lecture/Workshop or Half Day Lecture
Suggested Audience: Dentist

Managing Moderate to Advanced Periodontal Disease

Frustrated with recurring Periodontal Disease in treated cases? Want an evidence based approach with predictable results?

This presentation will discuss a scientifically sound, and evidence based, approach for effective control of moderate to advanced periodontal disease using minimally invasive surgical, or sometimes non-surgical intervention. It also will explain how we might use the technique in combination with scaling and root planning and no flap surgery at all. Both indications will be explained.

It shows how adding chemotherapeutic methods to specifically target the periodontal bacteria will allow for successful management of very advanced cases that might otherwise have been treated only with extraction. In doing so, results will be improved over classic surgical methods which may not kill all bacteria at the diseased sites.

Clinicians will learn a safe, economical and predictable means for treating, and maintaining, moderate to severe periodontitis. These innovative methods will be explained by outlining both in-office procedures, as well as specific anti-microbial procedures for the patient to do at home. When combined, they yield predictable clinical results for previously failing cases or advanced cases treated for the first time.

Treatment will be illustrated with clinical photos and radiographs, plus a veterinary application in dogs that also shows excellent results. Cases will be shown and literature quoted to validate the procedures.

Learning Objectives

  • Why Periodontal Surgery or SCRP fails
  • To manage failed or failing cases with a degree of confidence
  • To improve diagnostics with bacterial culturing
  • The role of patient care at home as an integral part of treatment
  • To accurately select antibiotics instead of guessing

Includes Phase Contrast Microscopic videos of periodontal pathogens

Suggested Format: 1-3 hour lecture
Suggested Audience: Doctors and Hygienists
