This one-hour presentation will target the education of veterinarians and technicians.  The lecture will review the statistics of periodontal disease in people, dogs and cats, and review systemic effects and loss of teeth. We will delve into the pathophysiology, reviewing host immunology and bacterial side effects. Attendees will learn to recognize the classic stages of periodontal disease, using dental charting measurements and dental radiographs, and understand the concept of “biologic width” to guide treatment. Examples of advanced periodontal tissue attachment regenerative techniques will be shared. In closing, attendees will learn about prevention of periodontal disease.
