Overview - Describe the pathophysiology of periodontitis in order to identify mechanisms of disease that can now be targeted in order to effect either a cure or at least to control disease progression. - Discuss the use of systemic and locally applied antimicrobial medications for management of newly arising and in particular rebound chronic periodontitis. This will also include information pertaining to a newly emerging therapeutic, photodynamic therapy (PDT) and lasers. - Educate the participants in regard to novel management approaches that can be used for modulation of the host-regulated periodontal disease processes which include downregulation of matrix metalloprotease (collagenase) activity as well as inhibition of bone resorption and reductions in inflammation. Time permitting approaches to management of periodontitis in smokers will also be addressed.
