- the benefits and limitations of antimicrobial and mechanical therapies for biofilm control.
- how and why antimicrobials with oxidative/reduction reactions effectively manage biofilms.
- how to incorporate localized antibiofilm therapies into existing treatment plans.
- how to help preserve the health of your implant, cosmetic, and restorative cases.
Biofilms in periodontal pockets regenerate quickly after scaling. Adjunctive therapies, like antibiotics, have a temporary antimicrobial effect. You can treat your patients more effectively with long-term success using prescription tray delivery of hydrogen peroxide gel deep into periodontal pockets. Research shows that this delivery combined with SRP leads to more significant pocket depth and bleeding reductions than SRP alone. Attend this presentation to review data on microbial changes during treatment and the science behind the tray delivery and its practical implementation.
