Bacterial Origins of Periodontal Disease
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Richard H. Nagelberg, DDS
This educational program discusses the bacterial origins of periodontal disease and the two mechanisms of periodontal tissue destruction. This is an evidence-based discussion, containing information from very recent research. Knowledge of these topics is changing rapidly, especially in the field of molecular biology, so you are encouraged to keep up with dental and medical research through the variety of peer-reviewed journals available.

Chronic Periodontitis: Treatment Options
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Christine Karapetian

A risk assessment and diagnosis of periodontal disease is made following thorough history taking and a full clinical examination. Once a diagnosis of chronic periodontitis has been made, treatment planning can occur. The treatment of chronic periodontitis involves initial therapy followed by periodontal maintenance, and a re-evaluation. At the time of the reevaluation, depending on the patients current status further treatment may be required. This can include nonsurgical periodontal therapy, surgical therapy and the use of chemotherapeutic agents.

Enhancing the Esthetic Outcome of Implant Restorations with Socket Preservation
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Scott Froum, DDS, Chris Salierno, DDS

Poor extraction site management can lead to future esthetic and functional prosthetic complications. On the other hand, preservation of bone volume and soft tissue height at the time of tooth extraction can help make possible prosthetically-driven implant placement and attainment of functional and esthetic restorative goals. Proper management of extraction sites at the time of tooth extraction may also can reduce or eliminate the future need for advanced ridge augmentation procedures prior to implant placement.

Periodontal Disease and Perio/Systemic Links
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Richard H. Nagelberg, DDS
This educational program will discuss the links between periodontal disease and systemic illness; or what is sometimes called the “mouth/body connection.” Not all researchers and clinicians currently accept periodontal disease and its links with systemic illness as fact. For some, the evidence is compelling. They have accepted the links as fact and modified the manner in which they practice. For others, more research needs to be completed before they form an opinion on the subject. You need to evaluate the evidence and decide for yourself whether or not these links exist. If you do accept them, you need to decide how you will modify your practice to address the issue.

Periodontal Disease and Smokers
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Richard Nejat, DDS

Periodontal disease is more prevalent and more severe in smokers than in nonsmokers. The host response in smokers is altered by a number of factors including increased gingival crevicular fluid, adhesion molecules and genetics. In addition, smokers are poor healers compared to nonsmokers and their response to periodontal therapy can be compromised which can result in continued progression of periodontal disease, or the need for more treatment.

Restorative Factors: Inducing Periodontal Complications
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Scott Froum, DDS, Chris Salierno, DDS
Cosmetics, health, function, and long-term prognosis all depend upon accurately assessing how a patient presents and then determining how to proceed. Individual patient considerations include oral hygiene, the presence of removable prostheses, the status and contouring of restorations, gingival anatomy, long-span fixed prostheses and caries. Attention should be given to the periodontal-restorative dynamic throughout all the stages of treatment from diagnosis and treatment planning to final insertion.

The ABCs of Site Preservation
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Scott Froum, DDS, Chris Salierno, DDS

This course is intended to provide the dental clinician with an overview of the considerations and steps involved in determining the requiremetn for site preservation prior to implant placement. Topics discussed include socket and site assessment for bone grafting, ridge preservation, site preservation based on site morphology, and the advantages and disadvantages of bone grafting prior to implant placement. The target audience for this course is dental clinicians.

The Art and Science of Effective Communication for Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Karen Davis, RDH
Ineffective communication skills, rushed appointments and/or fear of what the patient may think when presenting a periodontal diagnosis are some of the common barriers that interfere with existing patients being enrolled into non-surgical treatment in the general dental practice. What do you say to a long term patient that has periodontal disease, but it unsuspecting? This course offers solutions for the entire team to create value for periodontal treatment; manage common patient objections; and move a patient from routine prophylaxis into necessary non-surgical treatment inclusive of locally applied antimicrobials, as indicated, and on-going periodontal maintenance.

The Art and Science of Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment Planning
Released: Expires: CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Karen Davis, RDH
The art of treatment planning to accomplish successful clinical results predictably literally becomes a developed skill. This course shares key components to assist in that process. It is designed to challenge clinicians to take numerous factors into consideration as diagnosis and treatment plans are developed to treat periodontal infection; to allot appropriate time to be comprehensive during therapeutic procedures; and to include wellness education with non-surgical treatment to modify periodontal risk factors. The science related to understanding periodontal diseases has changed much over the last few years and treatment protocols should mirror those changes.
