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

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

14 Sep 2021, 11:00 AM Mexico City

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.

A contemporary view of infective endocarditis prevention – dentists among recommendations and protocols

Infective endocarditis is a serious and life-threatening disease associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite the fact that noteworthy progress has been made in improving the prognosis the mortality from infective endocarditis remains significant with an in-hospital rate of 20-30%.

Woman’s oral health during the pregnancy – preventing and treating periodontal disease

The main hormonal changes in a woman’s life take place during pregnancy – and the mouth is one of the main areas affected by such changes.

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

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

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

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.

Periodontitis: A crash course in the context of the new World Workshop Classification, from diagnosis to treatment and maintenance

Periodontal disease has consistently ranked high among the global burden of diseases. Its diagnosis and management however remain significant challenges. Its classification has perplexed oral health practitioners. For nearly two decades however, the preceding classification of periodontal diseases remained without revision.

Dental care for patients with Type 1 Diabetes

Dental care for patients with Type 1 Diabetes

Management of type 1 diabetes patients in dentistry can be a challenge. Tailored dental care programme makes a difference. The main goal of the insulin-dependent diabetes care programme is to early classify the high-risk groups to improve general oral health and thus improve the quality of life of our patients.

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

Corinna Bruckmann MD, MSc

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

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

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.
