Description:
This course will introduce a suggested caries risk assessment survey to identify an individual patient’s risk level for dental caries. Mapping a treatment plan is only successful when the dental team understands all factors that influence the caries pattern and its prevalence based on medical history, lifestyle behaviors and genetic/systemic factors. Attendees will view several clinical cases and soon recognize that different etiologies require different treatment decisions. Additionally, with the need to shift the philosophy to a minimally invasive one, attendees will begin to see how the latest diagnostic and fluoride technologies are changing the approach to care.

  • execute an effective caries risk assessment (CAMBRA) within the standard of care for every patient.

  • introduce the stages of incipient caries by applying the International Caries Detection and Assessment System codes.

  • preview and discuss various patient cases to identify the variables that individualize the prevention plan and patient home oral care.

  • recognize today’s dietary challenges created with convenience foods and destructive drinks.

  • differentiate how calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions interplay in the remineralization of compromised teeth.
