Curaden Symposium - Prophylactic management of caries and periodontal pathogens of clinically healthy adults

Denis Bourgeois (France)

Time: 13:00 - 13:30
Room: 101
Language: English
Chair(s): Denis Bourgeois (France)

Learning Objectives

  • > Enabling awareness of the existence of pathogenic flora in clinically healthy subjects
  • > Directing oral prophylaxis towards management of interdental sites
  • > Strengthening the need to manage oral health to reduce the risk of systemic diseases


Our hypothesis was to challenge generally accepted belief that interdental spaces do not fall within the scope of prophylaxis, and are consequently only taken into account when the clinical signs of periodontal lesions appear among adult patients. Our hypothesis was that the interdental spaces constituted refuges for virulent bacteria that could cause systemic diseases from a young age. It therefore sought to re-elevate oral health as an integrated dimension of general health care, a concept which is often put forward, but which is little understood and even less applied.
