Periodontal Nutrition

February 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Reducing periodontal inflammation through nutrition:

It’s not only possible, it’s wonderful!


Course Description

Maximally effective periodontal therapy is about much more than just cleaning teeth.  Yes, bacteria initiate periodontal disease, but it is the host inflammatory response that adversely affects oral and overall health.

There is now ample evidence, (which will be reviewed during this course) demonstrating the role that nutrition plays in affecting the host response.



Course Outline:

The role inflammation plays in periodontal pathogenesis

Modulating inflammation through nutrition

Early evidence

Current theory

Evidence for nutritional intervention to reduce periodontal inflammation

The role oxidative stress plays in periodontal destruction

Reducing oxidative stress via alteration in:

Processed sugar intake

Antioxidant intake

Fat intake

Nutritional intervention for periodontal patients

Practical methods to screen patients who can benefit

Realistic options for nutritional counselling

Communication strategies for helping patients change their nutritional intake
