This evidence-based course is designed to provide effective and practical strategies for managing dentoalveolar infections. The objective is to be practical. The biology of infections is used as a foundation to allow the practitioner to select the best combination of dental and pharmacological treatments to manage dental infections. In addition, potential adverse effects and their management will be reviewed. Want to know which antibiotic to use? How to manage most endodontic infections with local treatment instead of antibiotics? Which endodontic procedures offers the optimal way to reduce and eliminate endodontic pathogens? This course will answer these practical tips and more using a lecture style that emphasizes interactions with the audience.
After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Explain a practical method that combines non-pharmacological treatment with the appropriate antibiotics for managing dental infections
  • Understand the growing recognition of bacterial strains resistant to current antibiotics
  • Know how to manage the bacterial strains
  • Describe clinical outcome studies comparing one appointment to multiple appointment procedures
  • Identify methods to manage infection using local treatment
