OSC-8 50 Shades of Inflammation: The Mouth Body Connection
Our patients don’t leave their stressful jobs, poor sleeping patterns (insomnia, apnea, snoring), their physical fitness (or lack thereof) or their eating patterns (mindless eating & evening feeding frenzies) in the car before they sit in our chair. There is irrefutable scientific evidence that these habits have the ability to ramp up inflammation or dial it down. Well adjusted, rested, physically active, healthy eating patients enjoy a physiology that supports a better response to our prevention/restorative interventions. In this high energy, entertaining program be prepared to have your hair blown back and gain greater insight into the science of how lifestyle shows up in your patients' mouth and impacts healing, repair and recovery.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Explain how eating habits have the ability to dial down or ramp up inflammation and how it affects your treatment outcomes.
- Describe why your sedentary patients don't heal as well as your active living patients. ALERT 85% of your patients lead sedentary lives.
- Gain greater insight into the relationship between chronic inflammation & disease.
