Course Description:

Like “leaky gut,” imbalanced flora in the oral cavity leads to systemic dissemination of pathogens, biofilm transport, inflammation, and other complications. In pilot studies utilizing botanical medicine, particularly liposomal formulations, improvement in periodontal tissue has been confirmed and is an exciting development in oral health care.

In this presentation, Dr. Sodano will review the role of sIgA in oral microbiome health and how pathogens and endotoxins from biofilms create systemic consequences and review this game-changing research.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the role of sIgA in oral health and how botanicals can be used to up-regulate immune response.
  • Review specific nutrients that impact periodontal health.
  • Review the mechanism that creates systemic disease states by biofilms, endotoxins, and pathogens.
