Tooth Decay and Diabetes: A Connection We Cannot Forget!

Presented by Erinne Kennedy DMD, MPH, MMSc

In addition to periodontal disease, tooth decay is connected to systemic conditions such as diabetes mellitus. Using chairside screening, this webinar will discuss how to understand the relationship between tooth decay and diabetes. By critically evaluating patient cases, we will discuss ways in which we can achieve oral wellness.

Transmission: The Nut Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree

Presented by Erinne Kennedy DMD, MPH, MMSc

Over the last century, researchers uncovered the idea that bacteria causing tooth decay can be transferred vertically from mother or caregiver to child as well as horizontally between groups of people. Using the SillHa Oral Wellness System, this webinar will review cases to identify similarities between saliva data and disease presentation of families as well as discuss innovative strategies for families to prevent tooth decay.

Ammonia: Health Never Smelled So Bad!

Presented by Erinne Kennedy DMD, MPH, MMSc

There are two types of bacteria that can grow inside your mouth: commensal or pathogenic bacteria. When reducing caries and periodontal disease, it is important to understand how we can help commensal bacteria flourish in the oral cavity. Ammonia is a great marker of how much healthy bacteria is growing in your mouth. In this webinar, you will learn more about measuring ammonia in saliva and what that means for your patients.

Litmus Test: How Can We Tell If You Are Well?

Presented by Erinne Kennedy DMD, MPH, MMSc

Literature suggests that when patients have an acidic mouth, or acidic saliva, they are at a higher risk for caries. In this webinar, we will explore how we can measure acidity in a patient’s mouth, and their ability to bounce back after an acidic attack (buffer capacity).
