Inside the Practice: Inside Bridging Periodontal Communication Gaps

On this episode we look at the challenges dentists face when communicating with both patients and other health care providers about periodontal disease. While it can go largely unnoticed in undiagnosed patients, periodontitis is among the most widespread infectious diseases around the globe and numerous studies link periodontal issues to other conditions including diabetes and heart disease. Yet patients rarely understand the full gravity of the condition and often refuse treatment. Additionally, medical doctors rarely refer diabetic patients or others with periodontal comorbidities to a dental professional for a periodontal evaluation. Dr. Richard Nagelberg, a full time practicing dentist and director of medical affairs for OraPharma, is hopeful that a new free tool created by OraPharma can be used to both improve periodontal diagnostics as well as patient understanding of the condition and communication about the disease with other health care professionals.

The notion that the key to obesity management is to “eat less, move more,” is a deeply rooted cultural belief that can still be resistant to the current truth that obesity is a chronic, relapsing disease. Obesity medicine experts confirm that while dietary change and exercise are essential to the success of a weight management program, used alone they will not sustain meaningful weight loss for persons with overweight, obesity, or severe obesity. Enter the generation of new drugs that target the specific underlying physiology of obesity and work along with diet, exercise, and other interventions to augment and sustain weight loss.

Second Opinion: Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been an ongoing major public health issue for some time. In 2019, antimicrobial resistance was the leading cause of death worldwide, surpassing even HIV and malaria in mortality according to a study published in the Lancet in January. When the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in 2020, many public health issues such as antimicrobial resistance took a back seat. In fact, antibiotic prescribing increased during this time as providers scrambled to care for patients. Now as COVID-19 cases continue to show a downward trend, antimicrobial resistance has become a significant priority again, and more of an emphasis is being placed on antibiotic prescribing practices.
