Periodontitis has entered into a new frontier as not only a major chronic infection but a disease of inflammation. Recent studies demonstrate that the incidence of periodontitis has been underestimated by 50%. Determining who is at risk and the corresponding therapy/management is a significant component of effective treatment. Studies demonstrate the “perio-systemic link” and patients are asking about the relationship! Move to a new level of understanding of chronic inflammation and develop successful outcomes.

Learning objectives:
Participants will be able to:

  • Manage inflammation as a systemic and local immune response
  • Determine the role of traditional and nontraditional including laser therapies in controlling periodontitis
  • Utilize risk assessment to determine susceptibility
  • Incorporate the paradigm: periodontal medicine into the practice
  • Consider genetics, diet (probiotics/nutraceuticals) and stress as variables in controlling disease
  • Treat periodontitis as a major chronic inflammatory systemic disease
