Let’s face it, sitting through a lecture about dental caries or caries risk assessment isn’t appealing (in fact it sounds downright boring). However, the science of clinical cariology is beginning to have an impact on restorative techniques and technology.
Streptococcus Mutans has more to fear than a rheostat, now that we’re armed with salivary diagnostics and bioactive materials.At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
- Intervene medically in the caries process.
- Control patient caries risk with focused therapeutics.
- Design restorations to minimize recurrent decay.
- Improve the prognosis of restorative treatment.
