Periodontal Update for the Hygiene Team

Course Description:

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. 

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will:

  1. The circular relationship between systemic diseases and periodontal disease: Explain the underlying mechanism linking systemic diseases and periodontitis.
  2. - Dental management, screening and educating patients with systemic and periodontal diseases: Describe how dentists and hygienists can incorporate strategies to screen and identify patients with undiagnosed diabetes and make the necessary referral and educate them on oral-systemic link to present dental care in the framework of overall health.
  3. - The 2018 Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions: Overview of the new periodontal classification with focus on the case based review of the multidimensional staging and grading system for the periodontitis diagnosis.

I Found An Ulcer During My Intraoral Exam, Now What? 

Course Description:

Pathology of the oral mucosa entails a vast array of diseases that often confuse even the most experienced clinician. This course aims to use a “basic lesion” classification of oral mucosal pathology to help navigate and prioritize diagnosis and management of the patient.

Part 1: Red and White Lesions of the Oral Mucosa

“Redness” and ‘whiteness” are mainstays of clinical oral pathology. Utilizing these two parameters, separately and in combination, we will go through actual patient cases, ranging from the commonly encountered to the rare and/or complicated ones and discuss how to reach realistic, concrete decisions for the patient’s oral health care in clinical real time. Emphasis will be given on how to select appropriate diagnostic methodology and how to initiate and handle interdisciplinary communications where applicable for the patient’s condition. An update on treatment will be provided where it is useful to the dental practitioner.

Part 2: Ulcerative Oral Conditions

Oral ulcers or “sores “are among the most frequently encountered chief complaints in the dental practice. Using the characteristics of an ulcer (appearance, chronicity, pain, location and number of lesions) this part of the course prepares the clinician to systematically develop diagnostic assessment and treatment planning for a broad range of oral ulcerative conditions. Using clinical cases encountered in the largest oral medicine referral center in Michigan, we will present diagnostic decision trees and discuss which additional tests including tissue biopsy are necessary to arrive at a final diagnosis. Finally, we will provide therapeutic guidelines for common oral ulcerative conditions.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will:

  1. Document the clinical characteristics of common oral lesions accurately
  2. Use lesional characteristics to form and prioritize a differential diagnosis list
  3. Decide which diagnostic methodology(ies) is/are applicable and at what sequence they should be implemented
  4. Decide on patient referral and initiate communication with other clinicians
  5. Be familiar with and/or implement treatment based on accurate diagnosis of oral lesions

How to Practically Manage the side effects of Mandibular Advancement Devices in the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. An interactive webinar.

Course Description: 

Dentists are now an integral part of the multidisciplinary team responsible for treating sleep breathing disorders, particularly due to the growing contribution of mandibular advancement devices (MADs) to the treatment of adult patients. MADs are anchored to the teeth to force the mandible into an advanced position, mechanically widening the upper airways and reducing their collapsibility. However, the stretching of muscles and ligaments of the jaws generates stresses, which are transmitted back to the teeth, periodontium and temporomandibular joints.

Understanding and managing the side effects associated with MADs seem absolutely necessary for patient support, helping to reduce short-term adherence failures. As joint adaptations and occlusal changes gradually take place, following continuous wear of MADS, long-term support and monitoring is also necessary.  

This interactive Webinar will test your knowledge about MAD therapy, as well as your differential diagnosis and therapeutic approach for their related side effects. It will be organized around clinical cases with very different profiles, as well as different designs of oral appliances.  

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Review the mechanisms of action of MADs in the treatment of sleep disordered breathing, their indications, contraindications and the limits of their use.
  • Learn to manage short-term side effects to improve treatment adherence
  • Understand long-term dentofacial side effects, their risk factors and some biomechanical aspects of MADs design.
