Periodontal Disease and its Link to Systemic Health Problems
Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and pre-term births are all affected by the level of periodontal control in patients. Are your patients under control? One recent study showed an 84% reduction in pre-term, low birth weight babies with scaling and root planning. TIME Magazine listed “brushing and flossing” as one of the few things a person can do to live longer due to inflammation control.
This presentation is a fast-paced review of periodontal disease and its effect on overall health and disease.
Two-hour course recommended for dentists, hygienists, and assistants.
