Sealants, the First Line of Defense!
In this course the instructor will discuss the caries process, treatment offerings that assist in preventing future lesions, and how to have these tough conversations with the patient chairside. Attendees will use caries assessment tools to identify early signs of carious lesions and oral pH and acidity of foods to determine the need for preventative measures. The instructor will also review the process for sealant placement, and attendees will practice placing sealants on a typodont. Remineralization strategies with over the counter remedies along with in-office therapeutic options for long-term remineralization and caries resistance will also be assessed.
