WHY PERIODONTAL DISEASES INCREASE SYSTEMIC RISKS: FROM BACTERAEMIA TO INFLAMMATION
David Herrera (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > To learn what bacteraemia is, and the associated risks.
  • > To evaluate the dental procedures/activities most frequently associated to bacteraemia.
  • > To understand the role of bacteraemia and systemic inflammation in the association of periodontal and systemic diseases.

Abstract

It has been shown that inflammation in the oral environment can affect distant organs. The possible mechanisms included metastatic infection or/and metastatic inflammation. Scientific data to support the possible role of bacteraemia of periodontal origin will be discussed, together with the systemic inflammation associated to certain periodontal conditions.

BENEFITS OF PERIODONTAL HEALTH FOR PEOPLE WITH DIABETES
Phoebus Madianos (Greece)

Learning Objectives

  • > To understand the effect of diabetes mellitus on the periodontium and the main mechanisms involved.
  • > To appreciate the effect of periodontitis on diabetes and the potential mechanisms involved.
  • > To recognize the beneficial effect of periodontal therapy on the status of diabetic patients and the potential magnitude of this effect

Abstract

There is a clear bi-directional association between both diseases, and the potential effects of strategies trying to break the vicious circle created by the bi-directional association are analysed. The existing evidence regarding the beneficial effect of periodontal therapy on the status of diabetic patients will be reviewed. The best available evidence suggests that basic periodontal therapy can decrease glycated haemoglobin levels by an additional 0.38%, when compared with untreated or superficially treated diabetic patients. The impact of this, and other strategies, will be discussed to highlight the importance of the dental clinic in diabetes care.

BENEFITS OF PERIODONTAL HEALTH FOR THE PREGNANT WOMAN
Mariano Sanz (Spain)

Abstract

The possibility that periodontal treatment may reduce the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes (APO) will be discussed. The key epidemiological studies will be presented. Despite the significant associations of periodontitis and APOs, the impact of periodontal interventions, during the second trimester of pregnancy, has not provided a significant impact in APOs in most of the clinical trials available. However, the importance of providing oral health care to pregnant women should be highlighted.

BENEFICIOS CARDIOVASCULARES DE LA SALUD PERIODONTAL
Francesco D’aiuto (United Kingdom)

Abstract

Available intervention studies exploring the effect of periodontal therapy on cardiovascular conditions and markers will be discussed. There is good to moderate evidence that periodontal therapy may improve cardiovascular risk markers, such as CRP and endothelial function, while the evidence for potentially favourable effects on other biomarkers is limited. To date, there is no primary prevention study investigating the effect of periodontal therapy in reducing cardiovascular events. Evidence for the effect of periodontal interventions in secondary CVD prevention has limited quality. There is a clear need for more randomized controlled trials examining the secondary and the primary preventive effects of periodontal therapeutics.
