Description

Despite advances in dentistry and dental hygiene, the majority of Americans do not have optimal periodontal health. Half of adults in the US aged 30 and over have periodontal disease (64.7 million). This presentation will review a patient-centered approach to Oral Health Education and encourage Dental Professionals to reconsider the clinical relevance of gingivitis. The principles of Evidence-Based Dentistry will be reviewed and examples of how to use the evidence to guide clinical decision-making will be shared. These examples will include a comprehensive analysis of the science behind Colgate Total® toothpaste with emphasis on the recent Cochrane review of Triclosan/copolymer technology along with recent developments in implant maintenance. A discussion of the role of regulatory bodies in the US will help Dental Professionals evaluate optimal recommendations for their patients’ home care.
