COURSE SUMMARY: Reducing a chronic infectious burden, like gum disease, on the immune system has always been important.
Antibiotic adjunctive therapies have a temporary effect and the infectious cycle continues. You can 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, its practical implementation, case presentation ideas, and everyday business calculations.
Identify the benefits and limitations of antimicrobials with oxidative and oxygenating reactions for biofilm management.
Recognize patient candidates who can benefit from Rx Tray therapy and the appropriate tray treatment protocol.
Compare patient results with a simple number that helps patients understand the importance of treatment.
Understand the treatment guidelines for maintenance patients.
Understand the treatment guidelines for initial therapy. Gain insights on what your patients can expect in treatment.
