COURSE SUMMARY:  If antibiotic treatment for gingival health worked well, the rates of disease would not be so high. Treat your patients more effectively with long-term success using prescription tray delivery of hydrogen peroxide gel deep into periodontal pockets. Research shows that this delivery combined with SRP leads to more significant pocket depth and bleeding reductions than SRP alone. Attend this presentation to learn the science behind the delivery and its practical implementation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 

  • Understand the benefits and limitations of antimicrobial and mechanical therapies for biofilm control.

  • Know how and why peroxides with oxidative/reduction reactions effectively manage biofilms.

  • Learn the important of oxygenation under pressure for gingival health.

  • Identify when infected cells must be treated with surgery.

  • Evaluate clinical application of Rx tray therapy to preserve the health of your implant and restorative cases.

Understand how doxycycline calcium can be used to stabilize bone health.                                                    ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Dr. Duane C. Keller, DMD: Chief Scientific Officer, Perio Protect, LLC. Dr. Duane Keller initially developed the Perio Tray and the method to use tray delivery to help treat his mother who refused surgical approaches. That initial success combined with other patient results and subsequent research convinced the FDA to clear the Perio Tray for deep pocket delivery into periodontal pockets. With this clearance, all patients now have access to this excellent homecare approach. Dr. Keller maintains a successful private practice in St. Louis, MO with an emphasis on TMD patients in chronic pain. he is an Academy of General Dentistry Fellow, served eight years as the Chairperson for the IAO Education Committee, and received the Leon J. Pinsker Merit Award for Outstanding Contributions to the IAO. He has been a consultant for state dental boards, professional educational associations, and St. Louis University's Chronic Pain Center. As the Chief Scientific Officer for Perio Protect LLC and a former educational officer for the IAO, Dr. Keller has been lecturing to national and international audiences for over thirty years and has published more than 40 articles in professional journals.
