Xtreme Prevention

Traditionally, many dental practices have fallen into a cookie-cutter approach to preventive dentistry. Today with the advent of modern risk assessment we are able to target the patients in our practices who are at greatest risk and tailor preventive regimens to best address their specific physiologic and behavioral needs. Although most research in preventive dentistry has been done with children, this presentation will focus on the large number of high-risk adults seen in dental practice. A research-driven yet practical approach to the prevention of caries, periodontal diseases, oral cancer, denture stomatitis, erosion, abrasion, attrition, candidiasis, gingival hyperplasia, ulcerative diseases, and peri-implantitis will be presented. An unbiased, evidence-based evaluation of prescription and OTC chemotherapeutic agents will guide practitioners in the proper use of products.
