47% of American adults have periodontitis. We can reduce this number if we combine SRP with effective chemical debridement and oxygenation to decrease bacterial loads. Using a prescription tray, patients deliver medication into pockets in short intervals, at home between office visits. Research shows that this delivery combined with scaling leads to more significant pocket depth and bleeding reductions than scaling alone. Learn the science behind this technique to help your patients get better results and to create a firm gingival foundation for your work into the future.
In this 1-hour video, Tanya Dunlap, PhD will discuss how to reduce the number of adult periodontitis cases by combining SRP with effective chemical debridement and oxygenation to decrease bacterial loads.
- Understand the limitations of antibiotic approaches to biofilm management and the benefits of peroxides.
- Learn how to incorporate antibiofilm therapies into existing treatment plans
- Help patients augment homecare regimes to manage periopathogens daily.
