Impact of Sonic Toothbrushes on oral biofilm and their relation to healthiness

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Peter Saxer

Tue, 14 September
12:00 PM EST (New York)

Sonic toothbrushes not only clean orally, but also keep teeth intact and healthy longer and have a positive impact on overall health. Oral hygiene plays still the most important role not just in prevention of the most common oral diseases – periodontists and caries: it ensures long term maintenance of oral health and general health too.

All things micro – the role of micronutrients in periodontal treatment of risk patients

Prof. Andrija Petar Bosnjak DDM, MSc, PhD

There is a strong need for a more “natural” approach to therapy and healing of periodontal disease, but there is not enough information on the possibilities that we may incorporate a “healthy lifestyle” in our everyday practice. This short course gives an insight to the roles of some of the micronutrients in the oral ecosystem and also discovers which are the potential sources of micronutrients beneficial to the oral health.

Shaping the future of oral prevention – myths and truths about chemical plaque control

Dr. Tihana Divnić-Resnik MSc, PhD

Global increase in aging population, retention of dentition and increased rehabilitation with complex implant supported restorations will soon increase demand for prevention and maintenance. Are the “tools and potions” for prevention and maintenance we have so far sufficient to satisfy demands of future patients? Mechanical biofilm control is mainstream in prevention of most common oral diseases; however, chemical biofilm control may be necessary to implement as an adjunct in certain cases.

Interdisciplinary perio health: management of complex perio prosthetic rehabilitations and their follow ups over time

Dr. Alessandro Agnini DDS , Dr. Andrea Agnini DDS

Complex perio-prosthetic cases that require multidisciplinary therapy often result in compromised aesthetics. Traditional treatment planning philosophies, as well as existing interdisciplinary relational patterns, do not promote the achievement of predictable aesthetic results. Implementation of a restorative-driven approach requires the development of an aesthetic blueprint that will serve as a guide through treatment. This lecture describes a team approach for periodontal and restorative treatment intended to produce a predictable, biologically sound outcome that preserves more supporting bone and restores carious and broken down teeth. The goal of periodontal treatment, when performed in conjunction with restorative dentistry, is to provide restorative dentists with a high percentage of tooth structure that allows for a supragingival margin.

Dental care for patients with Type 1 Diabetes

Adj.Prof. Joanna Slowik PhD

Management of type 1 diabetes patients in dentistry can be a challenge. Tailored dental care programme makes a difference.

Another pandemic: Diabetes! Why should the dental team bother?

Corinna Bruckmann MD, MSc

Periodontal disease and diabetes share some life-style risk factors, like smoking, and there is a two-way relationship: patients with uncontrolled diabetes have a 3-fold higher risk to develop advanced periodontitis, while untreated periodontitis further dysregulates glycemic balance.

Inflammation and type 2 diabetes: pathogenesis and current treatment protocols

Prof. Marc Y. Donath MD

In patients with type 2 diabetes an inflammatory process is present. This inflammation is due to a pathological activation of the innate immune system, caused by metabolic stress and is partly governed by IL-1 signaling. We identified the role of IL-1β and insulin in the regulation of metabolism and immunity in response to food intake. Yet, as it becomes chronic, activation of auto-inflammatory processes may then become deleterious.

Ageing and periodontal disease: look out before you leap

Dr. Eric Thevissen

Despite all efforts of dental professionals the prevalence and incidence of total edentulism is still increasing on a global scale. Second observation from a recent meta review in JDR (2020) was that total tooth loss is decreasing in low-income countries while, on the other hand, it is increasing in upper- or middle-income countries. Is periodontal disease the main responsible for this evolution?

The (Medication) Matrix! Essential Pharmacology for Treating Medically Complex Geriatric Dental Patient

Thomas Viola RPh, C.C.P

Dental professionals must frequently draw upon their knowledge of pharmacology for optimal care of today’s medically complex geriatric dental patients. However, armed with relatively brief exposure to such a vast subject during formal education and faced with ever-changing medication therapy guidelines, many dental professionals simply cannot keep up with the latest trends in disease state management.

Prosthodontic management for partially dentate and edentate older adults

Gerry McKenna

Across the globe the population is ageing. Whilst increasing numbers of older people retain natural teeth, a sizable proportion of older people are still edentate. Replacement of missing teeth is important for function, aesthetics and to facilitate social inter-actions. This lecture will discuss treatment for edentate and partially dentate older adults including planning for removable and fixed prosthodontics.

Complications and side effects of cancer therapy: How to prevent and treat

Prof. Dr. Juliana Schussel MSc, PhD

Cancer treatment is by its very nature highly cytotoxic. In this way, cells and tissues are affected in different ways and patients may experience different reactions and adverse effects. The mouth is a site often affected in treatment and therefore the dentist should be involved in preventing and treating possible complications, before, during and after the end of cancer treatment.

Oral cancer: Early detection, diagnosis and treatment complications

Prof. Dr. Otilija Kutanovaitė MD

400,000 to 500,000 new cases world wide of oral cancer are diagnosed and causes about 150,000 deaths per year. More than 60 percent of the patients are diagnosed with late stage (III or IV stage) disease, therefore, 5-year overall survival rate is as low as 50 percent. Stage I-II may have excellent cure rates with minor surgery and few functional sequelae, highlighting the necessity for early diagnosis and heightened awareness in dentists.

Effectiveness of different devices for biofilm control used around dental implants

Dr. Viktoriia Gabal

Compared to natural teeth, dental implants do not have an immune system. Consequently, biofilm formation can cause quick peri-implant inflammation. However, using the correct devices dentists can try to prevent this.
