The “New” Periodontal Disease: Inflammatory and Risky 
Presenter: Dr. Samuel Low
Credits:  1 CEU Release Date: 8/14/18
CE Supporter: Philips Oral Healthcare   Reviewed: 2021     Expiration Date: 8/14/24

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   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
