Maintenance care for your periodontal patients in general practice: preserving outcome, reducing risks

Course Highlight: Periodontal maintenance

Course Abstract


General dental practitioners will encounter patients with different stages of periodontal disease daily. Making use of the new classification system, dentists are able to manage and treat patients accordingly, or refer for specialist care when necessary (for details, please don’t miss Dr Stanley Lai’s lecture). However, even with the best periodontal treatment done, without proper periodontal maintenance, the condition will likely deteriorate again. It is therefore very important that both the patient and operator take periodontal maintenance care seriously.
