Periodontal Health Seminar – Bonner Method

A pain-free option to cure periodontal disease


No Pocket Depth higher than 3 mm, no Bleeding Points, Commensal Microbiota and Hygiene Autonomy for all patients
Periodontitis is an infectious disease caused by plaque or non-plaque-induced gingivitis with subsequent secondary parasitic infection by Entamoeba gingivalis and/or Trichomonas tenax.

Periodontal disease is a specific Oral Amebiasis and/or Oral Trichomoniasis infection secondary to a gingival inflammation with furnishes nutriments to aggressive acquired parasites from direct or indirect vector as most parasitic infections.

Clinically, periodontitis is easy to prevent and treated when monitoring the biofilm with a hospital grade phase-contrast microscope. Recurrence is low as long as gingivitis is discarded and entourage reassured. Regeneration of hard tissue is predictable in vertical defects while health is maintained on a sufficient period. Inflammation is easily controlled via biofilm monitoring and microscope. Tissue regeneration occur when infection and inflammation is vanished.

Periodontal Disease is Early Detectable, Easily Preventable and Completely Curable.

Breakthrough Treatment for Periodontitis

The recent use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has detected the amoeba in more than 76% of diseased sites (Trim 2011, Santi-Rocca 2012, Bonner 2014) and has demonstrated its absence in all situation of healthy gingiva. All these studies originally initiated from clinical microscopy allow the practicing dentists, on the one hand, to visualize either the pathogen biofilm in periodontal disease situation or healthy commensal biofilm according to the gingival condition. This technic, on the other hand, allows exceptional clinical results. This protocol is also pertinent and efficient for any dental practice involved in a parasitic component of periodontal diseases and implantology.

The periodontal therapy protocol proposed by Dr. Mark Bonner includes microscopic visualization of the biofilm in all examinations and all appointments for the entire periodontal treatment and maintenance. Teaching and practicing complete hygiene care in real time in dentists’ offices become part of every appointment during treatment. Disinfection is done by repeated application of topical antiparasitic medication based on hydrogen peroxide 1% and Torrens Powder (slightly salty bicarbonate), by the use of topical metronidazole paste onto gum crevice as well as a systemic antiparasitic and an antifungal when required. This disinfection phase is followed by root subgingival scaling strictly limited to the use of sonic or ultrasonic instruments, once and only once disinfection is confirmed.

    Program Overview

    4 DAYS SEMINAR Theoretical and practical course for practitioners and their staff

    1st Day: Theory
    Expectations and agreements Introduction to periodontal microbiology Microbial theories and medical paradigms Biofilm according to the periodontal state Presentation of clinical cases: from health to Periodontics Effective medical and pharmaceutical treatment in periodontics Demonstration of Fresh Sampling Using a Phase Contrast Microscope

    Day 2: Practical application of the basics
    The Parodex index Demonstration and practical work on 8 cases of periodontal disease Constitute your own Parodex index according to its biofilm and its clinical state (participation of the practitioner and his staff as a patient) Clinical and microbiological comparisons of health, gingivitis and periodontitis Review of the stages of the journey by appointment Case Study: Transmission of Periodontal Disease?

    Day 3: Take back the scientific bases and apply it to the patient
    AM How and why bacteriology? State of the art science on biofilm The winning method (American, European, Canadian school) The interest of parasitology and its origin Study your patient records: evaluate your current results Transpose the microbiological method into your practice Achieve success for all your patients
    PM Synthesis of the microbiological approach Usefulness of microscopy Clinical aids and other instruments Grouping for the benefit of patients Being a leader in periodontics and health

    4th day (one month later): Integrate the method and move towards health
    To know when to announce the disease, the treatment, the cost Know how to set a tariff Accept treatment of your patients and accompany them to the end Integrate the various communication media Summarize the protocol, record keeping Review the steps of the first visit to the maintenance visit The protocol of the therapy by appointment and the “checklist” Share diagnosis, therapy and prognosis Informed consent in periodontics Medication and detailed instructions Understanding from the patient The maintenance
    This day, aims to deepen all the hazards of communication and implementation in the practice of the firm. A CD-ROM will be given to you with new tools such as the periodontal treatment plan to give to the patient as well as the estimate to accompany it, data sheets on periodontal disease and a list of standard phrases that can help in the explanation of the patient treatment (what to say and what not to say).

    You also get a practical workshop on the proper implementation of the method with patients, record keeping and visualization of the results.
