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

GERD, characterised by the backflow of stomach acids into the oesophagus, has significant implications for dental health, which this course thoroughly explores.

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.

If you're not yet a member of Dentaljuce, we highly recommend you to join and gain access to our comprehensive course on Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease.

This course, along with over 100 other CPD courses, is available for a single membership payment.
