Don’t take our word for it. See for yourself how effective the Perio 101 treatment protocol is listed below is a small, random sample of patients treated with the Perio 101 protocol. There are many more with similar results. All of these results were obtained by hygienists in a general dentist’s office (not a periodontist’s) using the concepts taught in the Perio 101 course. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to achieve similar results in your own practice.
A 66-year-old female presented for periodontal treatment on 7-23-08. She hadn’t visited a dentist in over four years. She has 28 teeth present. Of the 168 measurements obtained: 138 were bleeding; 61 were shallow pockets (4-5mm); 14 were deep pockets (6mm and above). She didn’t have any loose teeth, but her deepest measurement was 10mm. There was no suppuration.
One week later, she began treatment (no scalpels and no stitches). She was re-measured on 11-26-08.
This patient has been continuing with regular periodontal maintenances. As of 1-4-11, she has nine bleeding points and six shallow pockets. In just under 3 years of continued dental care, her value to the dental practice is over $10,000.
On 2-3-09, a 65-year-old female patient presented for periodontal treatment. It had been over a year since her last dental appointment. She said that the reason she hadn’t been to the dentist in over a year was because she was informed that her gum disease required gum surgery to reduce the pockets. She didn’t like the idea of gum surgery, so she chose to ignore her disease. Then she learned about our protocol.
She had a very severe case of periodontitis. We measured her pocketing around each of her 25 teeth. Of the 150 measurements we took: 124 were bleeding; 12 exuded suppuration; 51 were shallow pockets (4-5mm); 35 were deep pockets (6mm and above). Her deepest pocket was 11mm, and three pockets were deeper than 9mm.
On 8-5-09, she returned for a re-evaluation her of her periodontal disease. She was treated like everyone else… no scalpels or stitches. She still has all 25 teeth, so we re-measured the 150 sites.
This patients value to the practice during those 6 months is over $5,500.
On 8-13-08, a 53-year-old male patient presented for periodontal treatment. The patient stated that he not had his teeth professionally cleaned in nearly a decade, because he was told that he needed to have gum surgery to treat his gum disease.
We measured 150 sites around his 25 teeth. 82 measurements were bleeding; 5 exuded suppuration; 31 were shallow pockets (4-5mm); 46 were deep pockets (6+mm). His deepest measurement was 13mm and 11 measurements were deeper than 9mm. 3 teeth were also loose, including one with Class IV mobility. He was treated without scalpels or stitches.
On 12-3-09, we re-treated the tooth with Class IV mobility, as it was still mobile (Class I) and it still had pockets ranging from 4-8mm (as compared to 8-13mm at the first visit). It is still uncertain whether or not the tooth can be saved, but the patient hasn’t given up on it just yet.
He returned for an evaluation on 1-6-10, and all teeth were re-probed with the exception of the one tooth that was retreated the previous month. His readings were as follows:
This patients value to the practice over the course of 2 years was over $12,500.
On 12-4-08, a 50-year-old male patient presented with a very severe case of periodontitis. With only 23 teeth remaining, we recorded 138 measurements. All 138 measurements bled, 3 exuded suppuration (though it’s possible that some most of the suppuration was missed due to the profuse bleeding), 18 of the 23 teeth were loose, 24 measurements were 4-5mm, 100 measurements were 6mm and above, 22 measurements were deeper than 9mm. 12mm was the deepest measurement, and 18 teeth were loose. He was treated with our protocol… no scalpels, no stitches.
He returned on 1-8-10 for a re-evaluation. His improvements 13 months after treatment are as follows:
This patients value to the practice over the course of 2 1/2 years was over $16,000.
On 7-3-09, a 39-year-old male patient presented with generalized moderate to severe periodontitis. His sister, a dental hygienist, informed him that there was nothing that could be done to save his teeth, and he would need to have them all removed and wear dentures for the rest of his life. He had 28 teeth present, so we measured 168 sites. 133 sites bled, 6 exuded suppuration, 89 sites measured 4-5mm, 42 sites measured 6mm and above. His deepest measurement was 8mm and 10 teeth exhibited mobility ranging from Class I to Class III. Periodontal treatment began on 7-21-09.
On 1-12-10, the patient returned for periodontal maintenance appointment and re-evaluation of his progress. The improvements were as follows:
Over the course of 13 months this patients value to the practice was over $6000.
On 11-1-07, a 50-year-old male presented stating that he’d had scaling and root planing performed in 2006, and had been going back every 3 to 4 months for periodontal maintenance appointments. He was frustrated because his condition wasn’t improving, and he felt that it was actually getting worse. His periodontal status was charted and his condition was as follows: 32 teeth were present, so 192 sites were recorded. 88 sites bled. There was no suppuration or mobility. There were 121 measurements recorded at 4-5mm, and 13 measurements recorded at 6+mm. His deepest measurement was 6mm. Periodontal therapy was begun on 1-16-08.
He returned for periodontal maintenance appointment on 1-20-10. His improvements have been as follows:
Over the course of 3 years, this patients value to the practice was almost $6,000.
