Periodontal Medicine: The Oral Systemic Connection

Traditional dental education has focused on the role of bacterial plaque in the development and treatment of periodontal disease. Recently we have become aware of the damaging effects of inflammation which is influenced by many factors. Through an understanding of biofilms and individual susceptibility, we can better arm ourselves with the information and tools to fight oral disease. A quick review of recent literature along with medical case presentations will help highlight the dentist's role in overall health care. By helping patients explore the etiology of their diseases, we empower them to take ownership of and responsibility for their oral health.
