DESCRIPTION: While the role of inflammation in disease initiation, progression and presentation has yet to be fully elucidated, the explosion of information linking the oral inflammatory process to a variety of systemic conditions is at once exciting and daunting for the healthcare provider to assimilate. This course is designed to familiarize clinicians with current research findings linking oral inflammation with systemic diseases in a manner that allows for integration of the presented material into patient care protocols. Come prepared to learn in a relaxed forum designed for audience participation.
Following the presentation, course participants will be able to:
- Discuss how maternal oral inflammation impacts pregnancy outcomes
- Understand how stress impacts systemic health and periodontal diseases
- Recognize how diabetes and periodontal inflammation influence each other
- Identify potential microbial roles in oral cancer development
- Analyze the probable roles periopathogens and caries-involved microbes influence systemic health
