Guilderland, NY – My staff and I are very excited about our upcoming continuing education course on Integrating Periodontal Medicine to minimize Systemic Health Risks.
As most of you know, Cardiovascular Disease kills more people in this country than all cancers combined. Recent science suggests one of the main causes of heart attack and stroke, as well as premature aging and other diseases is systemic inflammation. Knowledge and understanding of the conditions and root causes of systemic inflammation and their cumulative inflammatory burden on our body is critical. Certain conditions within the oral cavity have a significant impact; periodontal disease leads the list.
Dentistry is the ideal profession to identify and help manage many issues that contribute to inflammation and overall systemic health. Integration with medicine is the way for the future.
After we complete this course, I will be implementing a structured system in my practice to identify, diagnose and treat some of the most important and potent contributors to inflammation specific to dentistry and collaborate with our patient’s physician(s) to manage these key elements with the hopes of reducing any further barriers for overall systemic health.
My team and I strive to stay updated in patient therapy, emerging ideas and are excited about the advances outlined that will lead to healthier patients.
Please stay tuned in my next coming articles as I keep you current on how oral health issues integrated with medical health issues continue to evolve.
