Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease
Welcome to our in-depth course on Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), tailored for dental professionals seeking a comprehensive understanding of this prevalent condition
We begin with an overview of GERD, followed by an examination of its specific relevance to dental health. You'll gain insights into the pathophysiology of GERD, understanding how and why this condition occurs, and its impact on oral health.
The course covers the diagnosis and management of GERD, emphasising the importance of recognising the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that contribute to dental erosion.
We explore the various complications associated with GERD, including its role in exacerbating conditions like tooth erosion, halitosis, and even sleep apnoea. Additionally, the course looks into medical treatment options, providing a well-rounded perspective on managing GERD from both a medical and dental standpoint.
By completing this course, dental professionals will be well-equipped to identify and address the dental implications of GERD, thereby enhancing patient care.
