Course Description:

Treating Periodontal Disease in the Post-Antibiotic Age

 Treating periodontal disease not only improves oral health, it also reduces a chronic infectious burden on patients’ immune system. Unfortunately, it is one of the most underdiagnose diseases. 47% of American adults have chronic periodontitis, but, according to Dental Intel, only 8% of patients get treatment planned for D4341 and D4342. Of that 8%, only half accept the treatment. Without a diagnosis, patients cannot make informed decisions or get the care they need.

Antibiotic adjunctive therapies have a temporary, limited effect. This is because biofilms repopulate after usage and because we are in the post-antibiotic age. A broad-spectrum antimicrobial like hydrogen peroxide is an excellent alternative for patients with gingivitis, periodontitis, peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis.  Attend this presentation to learn the science behind the use of peroxide for the treatment of biofilm-based diseases.
