Treating Caries Chemically: Minimally Invasive, Maximally Effective - 1  CE Credit

Course Categories: General Dentistry / Corrective and Restorative Oral 

This presentation will present a scientific overview of minimally invasive dentistry (MID) at the tooth level utilizing new tools such as the ADA Caries Classification System, selective caries removal, and chemical approaches such as silver diamine fluoride (SDF), and glass ionomer cement (GIC). Actual clinical cases will be used to illustrate these concepts.

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

  •  SDF and Glass Ionomers treats chemically at the tooth level

  •  Selective caries removal is minimally invasive

After taking this course, you will:

  • Understand current strategies which use critical thinking and an evidenced-based decision method in managing the disease of dental caries

  • Leave with practical tools needed to treat and prevent the disease of caries using a caries risk assessment and intervention protocols based on individual risk

  • Develop a better understanding of the disease process as well as the science behind products and behaviors that will arrest, reverse, and prevent future disease


Using the ADA Caries Classification System in Clinical Practice - 1 CE Credit

After taking this course, you will:

  • Have the skills to classify caries lesions by location, extent and activity

  • Determine when nonsurgical and surgical treatments are appropriate for all stages of caries lesions

  • Understand how the ADA Caries Classification System will benefit your practice and improve patient care


New Advances in Caries Management: Risk Assessment, Silver Diamine Fluoride, and Glass Ionomer Cement - 1 CE Credit

After taking this course, you will:

  • Possess evidence-based treatment options to manage caries based on individual patient risk factors

  • Understand how to use the ADA Caries Classification System to determine when nonsurgical and surgical approaches are appropriate

After taking this course you will understand how the following missing pieces affects patient-centered care:

  • Preventing and treating caries disease

  • Knowing when to treat surgically and when to treat chemically (minimally invasive dentistry)
