  • Lecture: Periodontal Therapy and Care Today. The Essential Points for the Dental Hygienist
    Periodontal diseases can be treated successfully, and cases can be maintained long-term, if a number of critical issues are addressed correctly and efficiently. In this lecture we will discuss the role of the dental hygienist in the therapy and maintenance of patients with periodontal disease. Even after the best clinically possible periodontal treatment, not all deep pockets transform predictably into a sulcus with physiological probing depth. Repetitive scaling and root planning with steel instruments can cause pain and discomfort and induces substantial loss of tooth substance with time. Non-mineralized subgingival bacterial deposits growing between two maintenance visits can be removed with subgingival air-polishing, an efficient and less aggressive method.

    • What is the potential and where are the limits of non-surgical periodontal therapy?
    • Is removing calculus and removing biofilm the same?
    • The principles of maximally efficient and minimally invasive periodontal disease control

  • Lecture: Tools for Periodontal Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
    Periodontal diseases are diagnosed on the basis of clinical signs, with radiographs assisting in treatment planning decisions and in the delivery of periodontal care. In the first instance, use of a screening system, to screen out patients with minimal or no disease, and to screen in those with disease requiring full diagnosis and treatment planning for periodontitis, is a very helpful approach. The full diagnostic approach relies on periodontal probing and the response to probing. Periodontal probing depth measurements and periodontal attachment level registrations are recordings of clinical findings, which depend upon the state of health of the periodontal tissues to a large extent.

    This lecture will review the assessment, and diagnostic tools for determinations of patient treatment. The new staging and grading system of classification from the concensus paper presented at Europerio 9 will be discussed.

    Phases of care and ‘tools’ to assist in Treatment planning will be presented. Use of indices and software modalities will be discussed

    Learning outcomes:

    Participants will be able to:
    1. Understand the use of different explorers and probes for periodontal assessment and diagnosis
    2. Understand how to use indicies for determination of oral hygiene compliance and role in periodontal diagnosis
    3. Using PSR in periodontal treatment planning
    4. Use of new periodontal classification in recognising stages and grades of periodontal disease
    5. Use of various software tools for treatment planning and patient motivations

  • Lecture: Salivary Dysfunction. Dry mouth, Causation – And Recording Its Severity.
    10-30% of the entire population may experience symptoms of dry mouth. ( Xerostomia-a subjective sensation of dry mouth). A condition – salivary gland dysfunction/ hypofunction- a lower than normal flow rate is caused by auto-immune diseases, medical conditions and some medications. This has to be confirmed by sialometry- objective measures of salivary secretion. Dry Mouth can affect quality of life : Surface area of 200-400cm2. Problems wearing prosthesis. Diets often have to be modified (Quandt et al.2011). Speaking problems. Eating problems. Oral health issues. Soreness.
    Aims and Objectives:
    • To update the DCP on Xerostomia and Oral dryness: its aetiology and evidence base.
    • To explore the existing indices and assessments for the quantifying and documentation of dry mouth.
    • To develop the knowledge of medicaments and what works in the palliative treatment of oral dryness.
    • GDC Outcomes: A,B and C.

Unique Dental Prophylaxis Concept – A Periodontal Instrumentation & Guided Biofilm Therapy Masterclass
Dr. Penelope Jones, Australia
Dr. Penelope Jones, Australia
  • Show CV
    After several years in general practice as a Dentist in Australia and London, Dr Penelope Jones worked for 25 years in a restricted Endodontic practice in Sydney. During that time she developed some problems in her head neck and back. She also noticed many other colleagues experiencing the same. This sent her on a journey of research and training in many therapies including many complimentary modalities to understand the impact, causes and how to resolve chronic pain.

    In 1988 she came across the Feldenkrais Method a somatic education system whose concepts of neuroplasticity etc are now modern buzzwords in neuroscience over 30 years later. She completed the 4 year training at Melbourne University in 1992 to be a Certified Feldenkrais practitioner. From this method, she created her Working Posture Program to deal with work related injuries and pain from sitting all day in a stressed environment. She has been teaching this through the Sydney Dental school for 20 years both at graduate and undergraduate levels. Helping some Dentists to avoid early retirement and certainly avoiding unnecessary suffering. She now runs her program through the Australian Dental Association's CPD Program Dr Jones has also spent many years teaching undergraduates in both Dental and Medical Faculties of Sydney University In 2001 she retired from Dental practice and has been focusing more on her Feldenkrais work. She has Accreditation in 3 other complimentary healing modalities and has studied and continues to study acupuncture through the Australian Medical Acupuncture Group.
  • Lecture: Sitting is a Health Hazard — How the Dental Team Can Prevent and Recover from the Damage of Poor Sitting Posture
    What are the elements that are so damaging from sitting all day. Specifically where and why the damage occurs and specifically how we can counter the effects.
    Why is it that regular medicine can help with acute postural problems but is inadequate long-term. The mechanism is different so a different approach is needed.
    Dr Jones is an experienced teacher of Neuroplasticity and there is no better way to change those poor postural habits that create pain and discomfort and stress.
    This lecture progresses from what was discussed last year with far more practical interactive movements to start the recovery from discomfort derived from the workplace.

  • Lecture: Dental Assisting Course, Establishing Vocational Health Programs in the GCC Region
    Working as a dental hygienist involves many aspects whether you are in a clinical or a non clinical set up. A dental hygienist can contribute to the community improvement through a variety of activities.

    Training is in continuous demand in all fields including the health field. Vocational training is our focus in this presentation as the dental assisting course , implemented by efforts of a dental hygienist , went through many phases and challenges. Most of the challenges are discussed and are being overcome despite the long process that the implementation phase went through.

    Legislatives were put in order, to help create a better environment for the vocational health training to take place. Now, a strong base is created in the Kingdom of Bahrain for health continuing education and the short and long term courses. Building on the base is the upcoming challenge that is hoped to be a flexible process since the GCC region has the potential to host and receive these new health training approaches.

    Dental hygienists have the potential and the right characteristics to be involved in such programs and lead to a better health training environment.
