 Nearly half (47%) of adults in the United States, aged 30 years and older, have periodontitis. Many patients are undiagnosed and untreated, which puts them at risk of progressive periodontal destruction and possible tooth loss. Treatment of periodontitis is successful and predictable. This course will update clinicians on periodontal disease diagnosis and treatment and provide the essential knowledge and skills needed to implement a predictable approach to achieving periodontal health for your patients.

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn to evaluate periodontal tissue, differentiate between health and disease, understand and appreciate the importance of patient education, and gain valuable hands-on experience with essential periodontal procedures.
