- The Silent Killer – Understanding and Addressing the Inflammatory Pathway
Jo-Anne Jones RDH
Are we still treating periodontal disease as an infection when leading authorities have redefined periodontitis as an inflammatory disease?
Today the AAP refers to periodontitis as an inflammatory disease with far reaching destructive effects on systemic health. The link between periodontal disease and systemic health is becoming increasingly clear and is the benchmark of innovative healthcare delivery. Long running, ongoing chronic disease such as periodontal disease tips the body’s balance towards chronic inflammation. Is our practice compliant with the newly published 2015 JADA guidelines for evidence–based clinical recommendations in the treatment of chronic periodontitis?
Inflammation often being referred to as the ‘silent killer’ is one of the hottest topics of research. The latest research surrounding the oral systemic link is both startling and compelling. Current research points to an association between oral health and some of today’s most prevalent and deadly diseases namely cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, respiratory illness, and autoimmune disorders.
What if we now could slow down the destruction caused by chronic inflammation and impact not only oral health but systemic health? If we continue to choose to ignore we are at a standstill in our treatment progress resulting in further destruction and unpredictable outcomes. Sound familiar?
Science and research by leading authorities presents a call to action for dental professionals to challenge our thinking. We have the ability to change lives through the power of our message and the science of our treatment. It’s time to put our words into action and recognize our role in reducing inflammation and sustaining overall health for our dental patients.
- To see is to understand – The use of intraoral cameras as an aid for individual biofilm control education
Mario Rui RDH, PhD
Discuss whether the use of images in addition to behavior change techniques such as reinforcement, goal-setting, feedback in the context of a dental appointment, contributes increasing biofilm control
- Can BOB ignite behavior change?
Theodora Little RDH
How BOB’s design and innovative features create long lasting positive habits amongst our patients.
Whilst exploring the new and updated features of BOB, we also explore and discuss how technology is assisting in behavior change. With Generation X rising into becoming loyal patients of ours, should we be thinking about equipping and supporting this generation with technology based prevention. Patients of our future are expecting more and more service and support in conjunction with ‘apps’. Perhaps its time to consider evolving with them.

- Treatment of Peri-implantitis and Peri-Mucositis
Howard Gluckman, Elna Van der Ham iTop teacher
The success and long term longevity of an implant does not only depend on the technical excellence of the surgeon but also on the patient and oral hygienist as a team to maintain the implants in pristine health. There are various products on the market to assist in the process of a tailor-made maintenance oral health program. Specialized oral hygiene aids to assist in the restoration of the disease and the healthy maintenance of the peri-implant tissue
