Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the benefits and limitations of antimicrobials with oxidative and oxygenating reactions for biofilm management.
  • Recognize patient candidates who can benefit from Rx Tray therapy and the appropriate tray treatment protocol.
  • Compare patient results with a simple number that helps patients understand the importance of treatment.

Treating periodontal disease not only improves oral health, it also reduces a chronic infectious burden on patients’ immune system. Unfortunately, it is one of the most underdiagnose diseases. 47% of American adults have chronic periodontitis, but only 8% of patients get treatment planned for D4341 and D4342. Of that 8%, only half accept the treatment. Without a diagnosis, patients cannot make informed decisions or get the care they need.

Antibiotic adjunctive therapies have a temporary, limited effect. You can treat your patients 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 learn the science behind the delivery, its practical implementation, case presentation ideas, and everyday business calculations.
