43nd Annual DREA Symposium - DEC 2015

Fighting Dental Disease
 Drugs, Bugs and Dental Products; What to Prescribe!

Presented By

Peter L. Jacobsen, PhD, DDS
 Diplomat, American Board of Oral Medicine
Dr/Hyg Registration includes a copy of his latest Dental Drug Booklet

Dentist and hygienist know about prophylactic antibiotics for heart problems, but what about prosthetic joints, what about body augmentation implants? New systemic and topical anti-viral drugs are available. Can they be used to prophylactically prevent herpes attacks? Is metronidazole the next drug of choice, if amoxicillin doesn’t work for a periapical infection? Can aphthous ulcers be effectively controlled with the new over-the-counter dental products? Are the newest anti-gingivitis and anti-hypersensitivity products really clinically effective and should my patient switch to them? Do they put ginkgo biloba in the new natural toothpastes so patients will remember to brush their teeth?

We all make decisions and recommendations. Patients constantly have questions. This course will update you with the latest information on a wide range of prescription drugs and over-the-counter dental products. It will also discuss the various "active ingredients", allowing you a better understanding of oral care products which will be useful for your patient. And, of course, Dr. Jacobsen will deliver the information in his unique, irreverent and entertaining way, while still focusing on the clinical realities of daily dental practice.
