Description

The relationship of oral disease to overall disease is certainly not a new concept. For centuries, the role of oral infection and inflammation in contributing to diseases elsewhere in the body has been studied and reported.  This webinar will provide updates presented in the second edition of Periodontal Disease and Overall Health: A Clinician’s Guide. This important textbook contains the latest information and clinical studies pertaining to the oral systemic relationship and is specifically directed at understanding how periodontal disease might affect distant sites and organs, therefore having an effect on overall health. Each chapter details the latest findings on the relationship between oral and systemic diseases and the co-management of patients for optimal oral and physical health.  Presented by the two editors, this webinar is an excellent way to preview the publication.  A free download PDF for readers is provided.
