Course Description

Clinical practice today uses scientifically sound evidence-based approaches. There is a noticeable shift to the caries treatment paradigm by better preventing and managing caries as a disease.

This presentation will present a scientific overview of caries management by risk assessment utilizing new tools such as the ADA Caries Classification System, silver diamine fluoride (SDF), partial caries removal, and glass ionomer cement (GIC) to managing caries. Actual clinical cases will be used to illustrate these concepts.

The presentation provides an excellent update relevant to clinical applications for the dentist, hygienist, assistants and front office.

Course Objectives:

As a result of attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Develop evidence-based treatment options to manage caries based on individual patient risk factors
  • Use the ADA Caries Classification System to determine when nonsurgical and surgical approaches are appropriate
  • Demonstrate how to use SDF, partial caries removal, and GIC to treat caries chemically
