 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 chairside 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 a dental hygienist as an integral component of 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 improve oral health outcomes.

 Learning Objectives:

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

  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 the 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 a focus on the case-based review of the multidimensional staging and grading system for the periodontitis diagnosis.
