2:00pm–5:00pm: “Body on Fire: Understanding Inflammation’s Role in

Oral/Systemic Connections” Kelli Swanson-Jaecks

Chronic inflammation is reported as the strongest correlation between periodontal disease and systemic disease. While the inflammatory response is considered of prime importance to the body’s immune system in fighting disease, it can also have deleterious effects. When inflammation is unchecked, multiple systems within the body can be negatively affected.  Systemic conditions of heart disease, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis are commonly linked to periodontal disease, however current research is uncovering other connections, such as prostate diseases, and colon cancer. What clinical interventions can be employed to fight and prevent inflammation? Can nutrition as a lifestyle intervention reduce systemic inflammation? This informative and fact filled course will provide tangible take-home lessons for immediate implementation in your practice.

After attending this presentation, the participant should be able to:

  • Recognize the mechanism and role of inflammation in the body
  • Understand periodontal disease as a chronic inflammatory disease, affecting multiple systemic conditions
  • Discover new connections between periodontitis, the prostate and colon cancer
  • Address clinical and nutritional prevention strategies regarding inflammation
