Avoiding the Periodontal Black Hole: Improving Production, Efficiency and Results with Prescription Tray Therapy
Duane C. Keller, DMD & Tanya Dunlap, PhD
Forty-seven percent of American adults have periodontitis. We can reduce this number if we combine scaling and root planing with effective chemical debridement to decrease bacterial loads. Using a prescription tray, patients deliver medication into pockets in short intervals at home between office visits. Research shows that this delivery combined with scaling leads to more significant pocket depth and bleeding reductions than scaling alone. Learn the science behind this technique to help your patients get better results.
