Course Summary

Periodontal disease is the most common disease in small animal practice. In order to discuss the disease effectively with clients and make sensible recommendations, we must fully understand the disease process.

 

This 60 minute eCPD tutorial for veterinary nurses will explain in detail how periodontal disease occurs. It will discuss the two main forms, namely gingivitis and periodontitis. It will explain the role of plaque, calculus and other factors and demonstrate what we see when periodontitis has occurred.
