The Periodontal Co-Therapist: Contemporary Periodontology for the RDH

August 1, 2020
12:00 am – 12:00 am
  • Timothy Hempton, D.D.S.

In addition to providing patient care, dental hygienists educate and advise their patients regarding etiology/risk factors, proposed therapeutic options and the treatment experience. This program will present documentation of various clinical cases treated with non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy. These cases will illustrate how contemporary periodontal therapy can be utilized to provide health, restore the periodontium and improve esthetics for our patients. Scientific evidence supporting the periodontal therapy used in each clinical case is examined.

Learning Objectives:
1) Review local and systemic risk factors for the development of periodontal disease.
2) Review the impact of non-surgical therapy on the subgingival biofilm and value of systemic and locally delivered antibiotics.
3) Assessment of commerically available periodontal medicaments and instrumentation.
