Periodontal treatment in the 21st century: from research to clinical practice

Magda Feres (Brazil)

Time: 12:00 - 13:00
Room: : SOROLLA (PV3)
Language: English
Chair(s): Carlos Cañada (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > Understand the biological basis of periodontal treatment
  • > Understand the current weight of evidence for the use of adjunctive antimicrobials in periodontal treatment
  • > Discuss the use of different treatment protocols in daily clinical practice, including the role of an efficient anti-infective periodontal treatment in the prevention of peri-implantitis


Historically, the treatment of periodontitis has been largely concentrated on deep periodontal pockets. The recognition that periodontal pathogens may be found in high levels in shallow pockets around teeth and implants had a major impact in the treatment of these infections and triggered a series of studies on the benefits of adjunctive therapies, including several antimicrobials. The aim of this presentation is to provide a ‘state of the art’ overview on the use of systemic antibiotics in the treatment of periodontitis, in an endeavor to provide clinicians with guidance to make decisions in daily clinical practice.
