Periodontal disease is one of the most common inflammatory diseases worldwide. Early detection is critical in identifying reversible stages of periodontal disease with non-surgical and surgical intervention. Gingivitis is the only stage of periodontal disease reversible without surgical intervention. Registered dental hygienists are a key partner in capturing primary diagnostic criteria to aid in an accurate diagnosis by a dentist. The collaborative approach to treatment planning and diagnosis emphasizes an interdisciplinary model of care, resulting in increased standard of care. A highlight of this program will review a critical thinking model and evidence-based decision tree to identify all stages of periodontal disease in particular the reversible stages of gingivitis. Current research and new developments in biofilm management will be discussed.
- Identify and distinguish tissue biotype and defect morphology
- Review critical thinking model in dental hygiene process of care
- Discuss biofilm formation, mode of action and management
- Distinguish between oral systemic and peri-systemic link
- Identify tissue architecture of color, contour and consistency, correlative to health and disease
Recognize and articulate radiographic pathology associated with stages of periodontal disease
