Periodontal Breakdown: Understanding the Process and Implementing Effective Chemotherapeutics

By Dianne Watterson, MBA, RDH
Commercial Supporter: GlaxoSmithKline

Successful treatment of periodontitis involves understanding how the disease progresses and implementing adjuncts for microbial control. Diseases of the oral cavity occur as a combination of microbial activity and the individual host response. Following definitive treatment for periodontitis, therapeutic care continues through supportive periodontal therapy, which differs from regular preventive care.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Recognize periodontal disease etiology. ​
  • Explore inflammation and the role of the host.
  • Implement appropriate adjuncts based on severity. 
  • Identify how therapeutic care differs from preventive care.
