  Treating Periodontal Diseases as Infectious Diseases (6 CR Credits)
Periodontal diseases are chronic infectious diseases. About 1/2 of the population has periodontitis ranging from slowly progressing with little destruction to rapid loss of periodontal support. Traditional treatment, both surgical and non-surgical, can only predictably control periodontitis in less susceptible people. The most susceptible individuals often continue to lose support with either of these treatment modalities. Properly applying the principals of infectious disease control as developed for other infectious diseases can stop periodontal destruction, and may reduce or arrest systemic disease effects caused by periodontitis. Periodontal pathogenic microorganisms must be identified, monitored and effectively treated before, during and just as important, after any type of active periodontal treatment to insure disease control. This course presents effective methods for infection monitoring and treatment of pathogenic periodontal infections by dental professionals, as well as strategies to reliably control supra- and sub- gingival biofilms via patient home care procedures. Participants will be able to: use methods for effective identification of high risk infections; treat these infections; train patients in effective biofilm removal, design an effective hygiene program for disinfection and select antibiotics for therapy and monitor for recurrence of infections. Date/Time: Friday, April 15, 2016 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM Fee: $125 MSDA Members $225 Non Members Instructors: Thomas Rams, DDS, MPH, PhD and Lawrence Page, DDS, PhD Location: MSDA Office, Columbia, MD Refreshments: Breakfast and lunch will be served.
