Current evidence from “breaking” developments in dental research indicate a growing number of links between dental inflammation and a number of systemic disease processes in the body. These now include coronary heart disease, vascular atheroma, type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, early onset Alzheimers, and even some cholesterol levels. We are happy to discuss these links with you, and assess your risk using the “Previsor” software.
We will clearly explain to you ways of dealing with your level of inflammation and periodontal disease.
Currently we are embarked on recording all patients in the practice using Denplan’s DEPPA risk assessment programme; this forms part of our EXCEL accreditation. We hope to complete this process by the end of 2017.
