Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dentists from novice to advanced

  

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

•Discuss the impact of salivary testing on treatment planning.

•Describe a comprehensive, total health approach to periodontal disease.

•Implement a periodontal treatment protocol that has impact beyond the oral cavity.

•Describe when to consider patients as advanced surgical candidates.

•Review how anatomic conditions can be corrected with advanced surgical treatment options.

•Review the basic principles of guided bone regeneration, sinus lifts, and CT-guided implants.

•List and describe advanced implant placements to replace missing teeth.

Abstract

Part 1

This presentation will discuss a comprehensive approach for addressing periodontal disease, salivary diagnostics and oral systemic research findings. The interconnections between periodontal disease, periodontal pathogens and systemic health are well established at this point. Incorporating these research findings and laboratory technology into daily practice will enhance the level of care being provided.

Part 2

This presentation will review advanced periodontal surgical treatment options, including advanced bone regeneration and implant placement. These techniques will include guided bone regeneration, advanced ridge augmentation, sinus lifts and a variety of implant platforms. The primary purpose of these techniques is to rehabilitate areas of bone and tooth loss. Restoration of function and esthetics is the primary goal.

Treating More Than the 'Lucky Pocket'

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dentists from novice to advanced

  

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

•Expand knowledge on biofilm complexity as it influences the direct and indirect mechanisms of periodontal destruction

•Make an accurate diagnosis using the AAP periodontal disease classification

•Know when and how to treat more than the "lucky pocket"

•Create "Twitter-like" dental-medical necessity narratives to optimize insurance benefit payment

Abstract

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. Learn to be the authority on what matters most to your patients' health.

Checklists Help End Periodontal Disease Treatment Frustration

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dentists from novice to advanced

  

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Describe and develop a checklist/protocol for recognizing, diagnosing, planning and treating periodontal disease. Image removed by sender.

2. Embrace the idea that we taught our patients that they want to get their ‘teeth cleaned’, and describe how we can now teach them something more. Image removed by sender.

3. List and review key words and phrases that can be used to present treatment options simply, easily and cost effectively to patients.

Abstract

We used to think we could or should remember everything we needed to know to practice. With the explosion in scientific literature, we need to finally give up on even thinking this is possible. SRP with micro-ultrasonics and the latest instrument technology, antimicrobials, locally administered antibiotics, and referral to the periodontist are all options in treating periodontal disease yet the patient wants ‘just a cleaning.’ This can lead to frustration where you feel really unsure about what to do. All pilots have been taught the importance of using written checklists. Establishing a written checklist/protocol for your individual office, reminders of key steps that can get forgotten or overlooked, can help develop the most effective treatment/flight plan for our patients AND help our patients to want and accept treatment.

Educational Objectives

The overall objective of this course is to provide an overview on periodontal disease, risk actors and treatment. After completing this article, the reader will be able to:

1. Describe the etiology, onset and progression of periodontal disease

2. List and describe risk factors for periodontal disease

3. Review periodontal treatment options.

Abstract

Periodontal disease with clinical attachment loss affects approximately 47% of American adults over the age of 30. The development and progression of chronic periodontitis depends on a number of factors including risk and the host response. Treatment options include nonsurgical therapy which may also use adjunctive therapies, and surgical therapy. Regular re-evaluation and periodontal maintenance is essential for patients who have been treated for periodontal disease.
