Course Title

Nitric Oxide: The Oral Systemic Link

Course Objectives

  • Understand the mechanisms of production of nitric oxide in the human body
  • Recognize the importance of oral nitrate reducing bacteria
  • Illustrate how certain oral hygienic practices disrupt microbiome and cause increase in blood pressure

Course Summary

Oral hygiene has been connected to systemic health for decades. The discoveries around nitric oxide producing bacteria in the oral cavity provide a mechanism that explains the oral systemic link. A healthy and diverse oral microbiome can provide sufficient nitric oxide to regulate systemic blood pressure. Use of mouthwash, fluoride and oral infections disrupt the oral microbiome leaded to loss of nitric oxide production and increased risk of cardiovascular disease and hypertension.

Thermal imaging in Dentistry

Course Objectives

In this training you will learn the following:

  • Learn to interpret thermal images for possible dental issues.
  • Learn what temperatures are normal for the area imaged.
  • Learn where to refer the patient for what the thermographers are suggesting.
  • Be introduced to dental meridians where each tooth relates to a part of the body.

Course Summary

Using tools like digital imaging with a thermal camera we can help assess inflammation. See how you can determine the need to refer out for additional evaluation. These images may give you clues that a patient uses one side more than another to chew, nocturnal clenching and grinding, hidden infections that result in lymph gland involvement. Our body is designed to heal itself but slow growing, chronic inflammation can create a burden that we are unaware of. Thermography is a tool using a camera that detects temperatures in the tissues. A cool temperature will image in blue. As the temperature rises it will be reflected in green, yellow, orange, red and finally the hottest is white.
