Perio Roundtable Evening - Edinburgh Dental Specialists

Our next themed 'Clinical Roundtable' will take place on February 15th 2011 and will be chaired by Dr. Penny Hodge, Specialist Periodontist.

The idea of our themed Roundtable is to provide an interesting and relevant forum for specific areas of interest.

Regular screening for signs of periodontal disease is an obligation of every clinical dental professional. Clearly prevention is always better than cure and the role of the patient in achieving a high standard of oral hygiene is a precondition of successful treatment and periodontal stability. In susceptible patients other factors come into play but early detection and treatment with regular three monthly supportive visits with a hygienist, under the supervision of a periodontist, will in the majority of cases maintain a functional dentition for life.

The integrity of the periodontal tissues is paramount when planning advanced restorative therapy. Working as part of the team at Edinburgh Dental Specialists, Penny is able to provide advice about tooth prognosis and appropriate periodontal care and is looking forward to meeting Dentists on the evening and sharing her advice and knowledge with the group.
