The Holy Grail of True Regeneration - Fibronectin The Holy Grail of True Regeneration - Fibronectin

Continuing Education Credits:

1 CEU (Continuing Education Unit)

Course Presenter(s):

John Chrispens, DDS

Date Added:

06/13/2012

Course Description:

Periodontal Diseases have been associated with an increase in bacterial plaque and calculus. Recent evidence, however, suggests bacteria (biofilm) is a trigger, but the host inflammatory response is responsible for osseous structural loss. The barrier between the bacterial trigger and the host inflammatory response is the epithelial attachment. While radiographic bone loss is often used as a criteria of periodontitis it is the loss of epithelial attachment which is the real gauge of periodontal disease progression. Therefore, the goal of periodontal therapy is to regain and maintain the epithelial attachment. Our discussion will involve a histologic study review about the key role of fibronectin, "Nature's Nectar" & why it is the Holy Grail of true regeneration. Come follow a real Professor's histologic journey in search of the Raiders of the Lost Attachment and how to get it back.
