Amazing Breakthroughs in the Understanding of
Dental Caries Management
Few if any presentations are as immediately relevant or as practical for dental professionals. As General Dentists, dental caries management is our primary focus. As a profession dentists have done an excellent job lowering caries incidence over the years. However, dental professionals have a new problem, the high-risk caries patient. 20% of the population has a 60% of the caries disease.
Dental professionals must learn to identify these individuals and look at caries management in new ways. Performing cosmetic dentistry or placing a crown in the mouth of a high risk caries patient without addressing risk factors is asking for failure.
This presentation is unique in that the focus is on caries management and treating the disease, not simply the caries lesion. Dentists and other dental personnel will be shown a practical, easy to implement, protocol consistent with today’s scientific paradigm. This requires that first one must become aware of the major advances in our understanding of the role of biofilm in general and dental plaque in particular.
Next, an understanding of the detection, classification and assessment of lesions must be addressed. This is then followed up by integrating the concepts of diagnosis, risk assessment and prognosis. Attendees will also learn about remineralization by chemotherapeutic agents for caries management. Preventative and therapeutic products such as fluorides, chlorhexidine rinse, Xylitol gum, MI paste, etc. are covered.
The educational objectives for the presentation include:
- Achieving an updated understanding of the dental caries process
- Learn to diagnose a person as either caries disease active or balanced.
- Learn to identify risk factors and assess levels of risk.
- Learn to choose the proper treatment protocol for each individual patient using the combined diagnosis/risk categories.
