14 DFW Graphic

Course Description

The growing number of studies attempting to understand the relationship of oral bacteria and inflammatory processes between the oral cavity and the body has been slowly convincing dental professionals that each individual response to bacteria is unique and that response  to treatment need to be carefully evaluated before a new treatment approach is considered. This lecture aims to discuss several cases with different responses to periodontal treatment and different approaches that can be used to successfully obtain periodontal stability of non-responsive patients.

Course Objectives

  • Discuss host response to bacteria
  • Discuss cases illustrating different periodontal treatment responses
  • Discuss different periodontal treatment and maintenance approaches
