Event description
Biofilm Elimination: An Evidence Based Hands-on Course Including Air Polishing, Power-Instrumentation and Hand InstrumentationThis course was designed for Hygienists and Doctors. 
MEC Interactive Course Description:
We’ve all been there, we evaluate the patient’s gingiva post non-surgical periodontal therapy and to find persistent inflammation. Providing treatment in patients with chronic inflammation present in systemic diseases, oxidative stress, and advanced periodontal disease can feel like a defeating process. Understanding how to implement chairside technologies of supra and subgingival air polishing, power instrumentation, and uniquely designed periodontal instruments will properly eliminate the pathogenic biofilm and tenacious calculus. This course is a combination of lecture and hands-on application.
Course Objectives:

Evaluate the 2018 AAP classification system and the practical application for you and your team
Discuss the rational of hand-scaling and the benefits of combining power instrumentation
Identify the best mode of biofilm reduction around natural dentition, restored dentition, and implants
Compare options for successful debridement technologies in pockets 5mm and greater
Review the benefits of rinses and gels in the reduction of periodontal pathogens
Relate the science in the practical workflow and understand how to safely reduce aerosols
Participants will utilize power instrumentation, air polishing, and traditional instrumentation
