Thirty -three million Americans are afflicted by Diabetes Mellitus, with 7.2 million cases undiagnosed. With the increasing diabetes epidemic, it is estimated that by the year 2050 one in three Americans will be diabetic in their lifetime. Diabetic patients are 2-3 times more likely to develop periodontal disease than non-diabetics. With 80% of diabetics residing in the middle and lower class American society dental clinicians have the ability to make a difference in the life of these individuals. In 2018 there have been new CDT codes implemented to aid dental care workers to identify and help manage the oral systemic link of diabetes. This course will help identify the types, causes and treatments to provide the best care possible.
Treating patients in the office who suffer with dentinal hypersensitivity can leave the patient and the clinician both on edge. You know the kind of patient that tell us where we are “allowed” to clean and how to do it to avoid a painful experience. Having the knowledge to recognize the cause and having solution options to treat the condition can create strong trusting relationships with your patients. Through various methods taking the ouch out of dental care can be achieved.
