Periodontitis has entered into a new frontier as not only a major chronic infection but moreover a disease of chronic inflammation. Recent studies demonstrate that the incidence of periodontitis has been underestimated by 50%. Determining who is at risk and the corresponding therapy and management is a significant component of effective treatment. Dental school provides the science. This CE webinar transforms the science into actual dental practice.
During this CE webinar, the student will • Learn an approach for managing inflammation as a systemic and local immune response with antioxidants and microthin ultrasonic/laser combos • Recognize management of periodontitis as a major chronic inflammatory systemic disease • Determine the role of traditional and non-traditional therapies in controlling periodontitis • Utilize risk assessment to determine susceptibility • Incorporate the new paradigm of periodontal medicine into the practice • Consider genetics, diet (probiotics/nutraceuticals), and stress as variables in controlling disease
