Digestion Dental CE Course Virtual DonticsCourse Description:
How often have you relied on your "gut instinct" to make a difficult decision that required nerve and determination? This live, interactive, webinar prepares you, the dentist, dental hygienist, and dental assistant with the tools to understand the role of the Gut-Brain Axis and its influence on the oral-systemic connection. Evidence based research has revealed the primal connection that exists between our brain and our gut. The Gut-Brain Axis also known as the Enteric Nervous System or "Second Brain" is a network of neurons that monitors the digestive system from the oral cavity to the anus, and communicates with the gut microbiota. This communication play a critical role in the modulation of the immune system, hormones, and organ systems. When one or more systems are compromised it may lead to chronic disease diagnoses impacting oral health. Understanding the role of the Gut-Brain Axis, the symptoms of compromised digestion, the influence of nutritional deficiencies and incorporating recommendations within the patient's treatment plan is essential knowledge when considering oral health conditions. Understanding the importance of digestive health may be a window into the patient's overall health and well-being, thereby assisting the dental clinician with knowledge to improve their patient outcomes.
