Periodontal Update for the Hygiene Team
Thursday, August 25, 2022- Register first and then a second link will be sent to register to receive the zoom link 5 days prior to the course date. This is a live program.
Connections Between System and Periodontal Disease: There is emerging evidence to support the existence of a two-way relationship between some systemic diseases and periodontitis, with systemic inflammation increasing the risk for periodontitis, and periodontal inflammation negatively affecting systemic health. Understanding of this relationship and incorporating strategies for chair side screening and making appropriate referrals and management of these patients will help dental care providers to better address patients’ oral and overall health and will also strengthen the role of dental hygienist as an integral component of the interdisciplinary healthcare.
Overview of the New Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions: A new periodontal classification system emerged from the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions. This new classification system will allow dental hygienists and dentists to individualize periodontal care for the patients and address multidimensional factors to provide comprehensive therapy and to improve the oral health outcomes.
ADACERP Joint Providership Statement: This continuing educational activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the standards of the ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADACERP) through joint efforts of the Texas A&M University College of Dentistry and the Association for Continuing Education Directors.
