Treating More Than the 'Lucky Pocket'

Categories: Periodontics
Author(s): Patti DiGangi
ADA Credits: 1
AGD Credits: 1
Cost: $19.00

Periodontal disease and caries are opportunistic biofilm infections with implications for systemic health. Periodontal disease has come with an expectation of recidivism. In other words, we expect bleeding and continued inflammation for recalls to come. We wait for and expect disease, and after it is established, then jump to procedures often just treating the "lucky pocket." Patients don’t need to come back with inflammation or disease. It’s time to change expectations with updated protocols and well-honed clinical skills that seek a healthy result.

Cost: $19.00

The science has shown that in deep caries dental lesions, complete caries removal results in pulpal exposure and ultimately the highest clinical failure rates. Conversely, incomplete caries removal in deep caries lesions has been shown to significantly increase the longevity of the pulp. Using dentin-preserving burs during caries removal in deep dentinal lesions helps to prevent pulpal exposures, and increases the opportunity for dentin repair and preservation of the pulpal tissue.
