Periodontal Update for the Hygiene Team
There is emerging evidence to support the existence of a two-way relationship between some systemic diseases and periodontitis, with systemic inflammation increasing the risk for periodontitis, and periodontal inflammation negatively affecting systemic health. Understanding of this relationship and incorporating strategies for chair side screening and making appropriate referrals and management of these patients will help dental care providers to better address patients oral and overall health and will also strengthen the role of dental hygienist as an integral component of the interdisciplinary healthcare.

Partial Root Extraction Therapy (PET): A Tactic to Rescue the Buccal Plate - ACDE Joint Webinar Series
Bone loss around extraction sites is due to the destruction of the periodontal ligament to bone complex. This is problematic in aesthetic areas, specifically the anterior maxilla. Many procedures and materials have been used to regain or cover lost bone structure (such as bone and gingival grafts). These can be costly and time consuming to patients. Research has shown great potential in partial extraction therapies (PET) where part of the natural tooth root is purposely left attached to the buccal plate of bone to prevent its loss. These therapies are more conservative than normal extractions and require no additional materials. This presentation aims at shedding more light on this technique as well as its contraindications and limitations.

Treating Anterior Discolorations: Micro-abrasions, Resin Infiltration, and Bleaching - ACDE Joint Webinar Series
Not every patient who has discolorations on their front teeth needs to have veneers. Minimally invasive treatments, such as microabrasion, resin infiltration, or just bleaching may allow patients to achieve an esthetically-pleasing esthetic outcome without the tooth removal and maintenance required with veneers. And many patients have small discolorations for which they desire esthetic improvement but do not wish to undergo veneers. Treating these lesions can be relatively easy with these minimally invasive treatments. Therefore, the aim of this course is to help the clinician determine which treatment is suited for different types of lesions, to make the clinician familiar with the different products available, and to show the clinician the tips and pitfalls of each procedure.
