(ACDE) Biofilm Management – Are We at a Tipping Point with Guided Biofilm Therapy

May 14

An ACDE Joint Provider Live Webinar Series …
Presented by

The underworld of subgingival biofilm can be a challenging environment for clinicians. Traditionally, the battle against biofilm communities thriving subgingivally has been fought with a blend of hand and power-driven instruments. In the last 5 years in North America and for over 20 years in Europe, indications for using air-pressured mechanical biofilm disruption technology with the use of low abrasive-based powders for both supragingival and subgingival biofilm have been developed. This evidence-informed review will explore the air-flow mechanism and its clinical application for biofilm management.

At the conclusion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the oral microbiome.
  • Understand the new immunology concept of symbiosis and dysbiosis relationship.
  • Learn to create effective patient care-plans.
  • Integrate air-pressured technology and powders into clinical protocols.
  • Evidence inform decisions with air-pressured technologies.
  • Learn the importance of risk assessments.
  • List and describe mechanical interventions that combat mature biofilms.
