Description

A completely different understanding of oral infection and its relationship to Chronic Inflammatory Diseases (CID), including Alzheimer’s disease and atherosclerotic heart disease, will be presented. Convincing evidence theorizes the mechanism involved with CID and a common denominator instigator. oral spirochetes. Oral spirochetal infections when treated with antibiotics force these microbes to hideaway into a protective "spore-like" form within the gingival sulcus, inside the epithelial cells that line the gingival sulcus and in adjacent granulation tissue. Morphologically identical spores were found in the atherosclerotic plaque in blood vessels and in several other tissues in the body. This lecture will change the way you understand and treat periodontal disease. It will aid in the understanding of the relationship between periodontal disease and chronic disease, plus help you prevent tooth loss and implant failure in your patients.
