DENTAID continues to support professional training in Dentistry and is once again collaborating with the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela (USC) in the upcoming Periodontology Refresher Course. The programme is set to commence in November and will run through the school year to June 2017 with a total of 7 training modules. (See list).
The last cycle of Aula DENTAID courses, addressed to dental hygienists, takes place during the months of April, May, June and September in a total of 17 cities in Spain under the title “Diabetes and periodontal health: a two-way relationship.” More than 1,300 industry professionals have already attended these training sessions, which began in Seville last April and will finalise in Zaragoza this coming September 17th.
With the arrival of summer, terraces fill up, and ice cream and cold drinks become the most effective remedy to overcome the heat. This feeling can be refreshing for most, but for others, it can be a real ordeal because of tooth hypersensitivity, a problem that affects 1 in every 4 people in Spain.
Perio·Aid is the first antiseptic combination containing Chlorhexidine + Cetylpyridinium chloride, indicated as an adjuvant to the in-office treatment and control of periodontal and/or peri-implant disease.
Periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis, are generally considered chronic diseases that are infectious and inflammatory in nature, located in the tooth support tissues and which potentially cause the loss of teeth. Their primary cause is the accumulation of oral biofilm, both on the inner and the outer surfaces of the gums.
