Member Webinar: Wound Management: The Key to the Oral/Systemic Link
Duane Keller, DMD, FAGD
Periodontal bacteria evolve at a much faster rate than human immune capabilities. The process of host responses is explained to facilitate a better understanding of the inflammatory process and opportunities for managing these situations, including an oral oxygen therapy that is often used in chronic wound clinics.
- Understand how periopathogens affect local and systemic inflammation.
- Recognize the pathways of invasion.
- Learn oxidative and oxygenating treatments for the biofilm causing disease.
