Long gone are the days of “Let them fall out ... they’re just baby teeth!” Current theories, new attitudes, improved materials and evidence-based procedures now encourage dental clinicians to re-examine how to best treat young patients with bioactive and interim restorative materials, stainless steel and composite crowns and immediate space maintenance for early childhood caries. This lecture will discuss the various materials and proper diagnosis for restorations, posterior/anterior crowns and immediate space maintenance. New bioactive materials, along with Silver Diamine Fluoride, restorative crowns for both posterior and anterior teeth, and immediate space maintenance for primary tooth loss will be discussed. This is a two-part course (C36 and W22) that is best attended as a full-day experience. For comprehensive learning, you must register and pay for both courses for the full-day experience. However, attendees may choose to take the lecture course only.

Participants will be able to:

  • understand new theories, attitudes and materials of pediatric dentistry.
