Treating More Than the 'Lucky Pocket'

Categories:

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Students, Dentists

Duration: 49:55

Synopsis

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.

Basic Periodontal Surgical Treatment Options: Part 1

Categories:

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Students, Dentists

Duration: 46:54

View Video

Synopsis

This course will review basic periodontal surgical treatment options following initial therapy where non-surgical treatment failed to produce the best results possible or where non-surgical options alone would not be successful. The primary purpose of periodontal surgery is to better access root surfaces and bony defects for treatment. The type of surgery should be determined by the best therapy appropriate to manage each particular patient’s soft and hard tissue defects (e.g., osseous surgery, biologics, bone grafting, soft-tissue grafting). The overall goal is to control the disease process in order to halt progression, restore tissue and minimize the effects of the disease.

Biofilm Disruption and Plaque and Calculus Removal: New Technologies Aid in Treatment Acceptance

Categories:

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Students, Dentists

Duration: 48:42

View Video

Synopsis

The ultrasonic instruments available today assist the clinician by enhancing the periodontal care they provide, and do so with less discomfort for their patients. Proper technique maximizes biofilm disruption along with plaque and calculus removal and is only one of the benefits of ultrasonic instrumentation. It is easy to implement ultrasonics when you base its inclusion on today’s science and the oral systemic link paired with the right verbiage that your patients can understand.

Benefits of Ultrasonics in Dentistry Today: Practical Application and Rationale for Hygienists and Dentists

Categories:

Target Audience: Dental Students, Dentists

Duration: 47:59

View Video

Synopsis

The study of biofilm has initiated a major shift in ultrasonic application. This webinar is designed to examine the role ultrasonics plays in contemporary periodontal therapeutics, as well as the rationale of hand scaling versus power scaling. Discussion of magnetostrictive technology will be explored, with emphasis on piezoelectric technology.

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

•Describe the salivary sample collection protocol.

•Discuss the relevance of bacterial identification to periodontal treatment planning.

•Implement salivary diagnostic testing in the dental practice.

•Understand adjunct’s role in periodontal treatment considerations.

•Understand the specific advantages of and role played by locally administered antibiotics.

•Understand when and where the use of adjuncts fits into a common protocol.

•Understand how adjuncts help reduce pockets, better maintain pocket reduction, reduce inflammation, and better maintain bone support of periodontally affected teeth.

•Understand the additional complications that dry mouth causes in an aging population related to gum disease, tooth decay, and adjuncts that can help with this condition.

Abstract

Part 1

The first section of webinar #2 will focus on identification of bacterial through salivary diagnostic testing. Salivary testing for patients with periodontal disease and patients with a family history and risk factors for periodontal disease will be discussed. Test reports and their clinical relevance will be covered as well.

Part 2

The second part of this webinar will focus on the current treatment model for periodontal care is a complementarity medical/mechanical model that combines physical disruption of bacteria via gold standard SRP + chemical inhibition of etiologic bacteria. Consideration of adjuncts is a standard concept during active therapy (e.g. SRP) and/or maintenance therapy.

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

•Describe the clinical parameters and indications for considering patients as surgical candidates.

•Review the underlying principles involved in various basic surgical treatment options.

•Describe the manner in which surgical periodontal therapy can be used to treat periodontal disease and halt its progression.

•Review anatomical defects and conditions associated with periodontal disease and how these can be treated.
