Oral Inflammation and Links to Systemic Disease: Periodontal Care with a Focus on "Oral Inflammatory Load" Reducation

Oral Inflammation is the first sign of active periodontal disease and detecting gingivitis/ periodontitis early in your patients is the key to preventing destruction of the periodontium. Oral inflammation  has also now been shown to activate the circulating immune system and impact systemic health. We will review the most recent evidence on links between oral and systemic health and how early detection of oral inflammation can we be used to personalize and optimize dental care and overall health

Peri-implantitis – All you want (or not) to know!  

During the last years, the use of dental implants is becoming a common practice and peri-implant diseases are more frequently evident. Apparently, as time goes by and also implies from the available literature, we will be seeing more and more cases of peri-implant diseases. The reported prevalence in the literature reaches almost 30 to 50% of implant patients. This means that one out of two or three of our implant patients might present with peri-implant disease at some point. This is also an important aspect of informed consent for our patients. Another troubling issue with regards to peri-implant diseases is the lack of appropriate, well-documented gold-standard treatment, specifically for peri-implantitis. There are many suggested treatment options described in case reports and case series in the literature; none of them seems to provide a predictable long-term resolution of the disease.

 

In order to prevent and treat peri-implant diseases, there is a need to understand the nature of the disease and the risk factors.

This lecture will focus on causes and risk factors for peri-implant diseases, ways to prevent its occurrence as well as the currently available treatment options for peri-implantitis.  Preventive measures as well as treatment planning dilemmas will be discussed as well.

Upgrade and Re-Boot Your Dental Hygiene Operatory-Using evidenced-based science to drive periodontal treatment.

Learn to diversify your ultrasonic magnetostrictive insert and piezoelectric tip portfolio for full mouth periodontal debridement. Dental ultrasonic technology has come a long way since its inception in 1953. Today, manufacturers offer a wide range of ultrasonic equipment to satisfy any patient presentation. When the dental hygienist has access to a variety of inserts and tips, procedures are completed more efficiently and effectively. Just as a provider uses a variety of hand instruments for non-surgical procedures, so too is needed for ultrasonic instrumentation. Join us for a two-hour course that pulls back the curtain on ultrasonic technology and will teach you to diversify your insert and tip portfolio.

 

At the conclusion of this course, the oral health care provider will be able to:

  1. Understand the design differences in magnetostrictive and piezoelectric ultrasonic technology.

  2. Identify the non-surgical clinical applications of ultrasonic inserts and tips.

  3. Incorporate a diversified insert and tip portfolio into clinical practice that improves efficiency and patient comfort during periodontal debridement.

Implementation Workshop 

Ready to Level Up Your Hygiene Department?

“Implementation: The process of moving an idea from concept to reality” 

Have you struggled with moving from concept learned to reality into your practice?  Have you ever come back from a CE event and thought, “we need to implement this in our practice,” but then it never comes to fruition?

We understand it can be difficult to find the time to create new protocols and introduce new concepts and technology into practice! Let us help you take the guesswork out with this one-of-a-kind Implementation Workshop. 

We have done all the prep work for you and will share the protocols to take it from an idea to implementation.  Many of the conference topics will be covered and more.  You’ll be able to follow along in your own workbook that you get to take back to the office.
