Presenter: Dr. Timothy Donley
Credits:  1 CEU Release Date: 8/15/17
CE Supporter: Philips Oral Healthcare   Reviewed: 2021     Expiration Date: 8/15/24

Today’s oral hygiene must be about more than just telling patients to brush and floss. Biofilm leads to inflammation. Inflammation leads to oral and systemic ramifications. Successful interruption of the microscopic etiology is essential to eliminate the risk to oral and overall health. This CE webinar presents a new approach to determining what the patient needs to be consistently adequate with their daily hygiene. Daily hygiene is now topographical microscopic warfare aimed at reducing inflammation. If all your patients are using is manual toothbrushing and flossing they are probably not maximally effective in interruption of the microscopic etiology.
Attendees will learn the benefits of newer options which give patients the maximum chance of interrupting etiology on a daily basis. Oral and overall health is at stake. Give your patients the best chance to remain inflammation-free.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will
• Understand the role the biofilm plays in causing periodontal and systemic disease
• Understand the role that topography plays in biofilm interruption
• Learn the limits of manual brushing
• Learn the new microscopic goal of daily hygiene
• Understand the options for microscopic biofilm interruption on smooth and contoured surfaces
• Learn a surface specific approach to determining what the patient needs to be consistently adequate with daily hygiene
• Develop a protocol for making and reinforcing oral hygiene instructions to inspire compliance   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
