New Philosophy on Perio Debridement: What to Use & When This is a Core CE seminar

April 26, 2019
7:30 am โ€“ 10:30 am
  • Timothy Donley, D.D.S., MSD

Every day a significant number of patients walk into dental offices with legitimate periodontal needs. There are now, more than ever, compelling reasons to address these needs. Successful periodontal therapy depends on successful debridement. This course presents evidence-based protocols to maximize chances for resolving patients’ periodontal disease. From mechanical debridement to local antibiotic therapy to laser debridement, the emphasis is on what, when and how. The course takes a “learn it today – use it tomorrow” approach. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding and an evidence-based game plan to implement improved periodontal debridement strategies immediately upon returning to the office.

Learning Objectives:
1) Periodontal and systemic health – tools to identify priority patients.
2) Protocol for diagnosis – determining what sites to treat.
3) Biofilm-based treatment philosophy.
4) Demystifying debridement
5) Realistic approach to adjunctive therapies.

Course Number: F1906
