COURSE SUMMARY: What does bleeding on probing on probing (BOP), bleeding on scaling, radiographic bone loss, and calculus have in common? They are all reactions to a periodontal infection! What would happen if we could flip this reactionary model to be more proactive than reactive? We would treat more periodontal infections, and at earlier stages, we would have better and more predictable treatment outcomes, our bodies and hands would thank us, AND we not only save more teeth, but we would also save more lives! This course will demonstrate how salivary diagnostics is one of the best tools for giving us an edge in providing proactive oral wellness.
Recognize the early warning signs of periodontal disease (Before BOP)
Understand the key players in the mouth-body connection, and their role in causing periodontal and systemic diseases.
Identify the microbial complexes.
Identify SRP resistant pathogens and how they affect periodontal treatment.
Utilize the best practice for attaining a salivary sample
