- Dental Caries Infection: A pH Mediated Disease 3 hr CE on 12/7/17 at F
Saliva is one of the body’s most effective means for protecting the tooth enamel against acid. It is important to have adequate saliva to be a pH buffer. When plaque pH drops below 5.5, tooth decay can occur. Studies indicate that saliva may be useful for detecting heart disease, acid reflux, diabetes and other conditions. It’s time to shift dentistry focus from finding the cavity to treating the caries disease process. The good news is this can bring new profit to your practice. When patients can see, understand and own the disease process that has been invisible in the past; watching and waiting for breakdown makes no sense. This hands-on, interactive course focuses on three minimally invasive levels of prevention and early treatment using up-to-date technologies and systems.
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
Identify 3 minimally invasive levels of new prevention
Incorporate risk assessment routinely into practice
Translate evidence based science into language patients can understand
Create decision tress to determine productive individualized diagnosis and treatment
