LECTURE

“Incorporating Quality Periodontics into Comprehensive Restorative Dentistry”

Friday, March 1, 2019

8 hours AGD Perio Lecture credit – IDBE pending approval

Innovative Periodontics: “How to” from techniques to products. Want to utilize the Dental Hygienist’s time more productively? Looking for a quality resource for “what’s new” in dental products, systems and technology?

Periodontitis is a major reason for tooth loss and systemic complications. We create the user-friendly perio approach from patient acceptance scripting to chair side positive action. You will incorporate time tested and new technologies to find and manage periodontal disease. Take the frustration out of delivering periodontal care and gain success with patient case acceptance, tooth retention and financial reward.

Learning Objectives

  • Empower the dental hygienist with ex-panded work descriptions beyond the “prophy”
  • Develop “realistic” non-surgical thera-pies and the respective re-evaluation with emphasis on “new” anti-inflam-matory systems including micro-ul-trasonics and laser technology, and nutraceuticals such as probiotics and anti-oxidants
  • Determine the efficacy of utilizing various laser wavelengths in sulcular decontamination, degranulation, new attachment, and bone regeneration
  • Review successful parameters to de-termine tooth survival in short and long term prognosis
  • Establish a quality periodontal mainte-nance program that enhances the re-storative practice, including third party reimbursement
  • Achieve greater positive interaction between dentists and the team through improved communication skills
