Description

Inflammation represents the body’s protective response to injury and tissue destruction. Inflammation can also be potentially harmful. Clinical signs of inflammation are redness due to open blood vessels, heat due to warmth of blood, swelling due to edema, pain due to stimulation of pain receptors, and loss of function due to edema. Periodontitis is the result of inflammation to the periodontium. This can affect the body’s systems, especially the arteries and can potentially cause more harm in a patient with compromised cardiovascular health. Dental professionals should assess risk for patients with diagnosed (or undiagnosed) diseases such as diabetes, respiratory diseases, and osteoporosis and refer patients to a physician or periodontist as necessary. It is very important to evaluate and monitor oral hygiene in at risk patients. The inclusion of antimicrobials as a part of patient home care to enhance plaque control should be considered. (Sponsored in part by a grant from Colgate.)

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the dental professional should be able to:
Objective 1:
Explain the mechanism by which periodontal disease causes production of inflammatory mediators that enter the systemic circulation and affect organ systems in the body
Objective 2:
Explain the mechanism by which inflammatory mediators effect vessel plaque formation and lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular dis- ease
Objective 3:
Explain the mechanism by which periodontal disease mediators worsen the condition in diabetes mellitus
Objective 4:
Describe the association of periodontal disease and the increased risk of development of pneumonia and COPD in the elderly
Objective 5:
Describe the probable association of periodontal disease, tooth loss, and osteoporosis
Objective 6:
Clarify how appropriate treatment of periodontal disease can lead to improvement in outcomes in many of the above disease processes.
