Dr. Arta Farahmand, a periodontist in Torrance, CA, launches an interdisciplinary study club encouraging dental practitioners from a variety of specialties to work together and solve complex cases.

Torrance, CA, March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Arta Farahmand, long-time periodontist

in Torrance, CA, is leading a local study club aimed at bringing together periodontists, restorative clinicians, orthodontists, and endodontists to discuss innovative, collaborate patient care approaches in challenging situations. The study club, "Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning for the Complex Case," includes four sessions in 2019 at the Torrance Doubletree Hotel. Each session is worth two continuing education credits.

A proponent of interdisciplinary medicine, Dr. Farahmand launched the study club in response to requests from peers. The first session was held in January 2019 and focused on orthodontics for restorative and cosmetic purposes. Interdisciplinary medicine brings experts together to stop the spread and destructive outcomes of oral conditions such as gum disease. When diagnosed and treated early, gum disease poses less risk to patients than when it reaches more advanced stages. As the gums, teeth, and jawbone are systematically affected by bacteria and infection, tooth and bone loss become inevitable.

Patients who visit a Torrance, CA, periodontist presenting concerns including tooth loss, gum recession, tooth grinding, malocclusion and other issues may require multiple treatments to bring their mouths to a healthier state and reduce chances of systemic difficulties. Consequently, relying on an interdisciplinary approach to treatment can allow optimal results and ward off setbacks.

Each "Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning for the Complex Case" meeting will cover a distinctive aspect of interdisciplinary medicine as it pertains to dentistry. From weighing treatment options and adhering to minimally invasive treatment planning, to sequencing treatment plans and addressing prosthetic soft tissue interfaces, the study club will give members the information they need to make wise choices and recommendations for patients with gum disease, malocclusion, sleep apnea, tooth loss and other conditions.

Those interested in discovering a collaborative approach to patient care can Dr. Farahmand's office at 424-488-7500 to reserve their seat at the next interdisciplinary study club meeting.
