Title: The oral/systemic link demystified: Tell your mom you are a real doctor!


Periodontal disease is chronic inflammation unchecked. Why does this occur?  What is the sequence? This program will explain and simplify the downward spiral of periodontal disease—from beneficial acute inflammatory response to chronic unresolved inflammation with its direct impact on systemic health.

Learning objectives:

  • Achieve a clear and simple understanding of the progression of periodontal disease from a clinical, cellular, and biochemical level.
  • Discover the local/systemic link pathway of action between periodontal disease and systemic disease.
  • Learn about the relationship of periodontal disease to other chronic inflammatory diseases of aging.
  • Learn about a simple new chairside test to measure oral inflammation and evaluate treatment success.
