Sometimes it seems as though our patients don’t grasp the basic concept of home care. Other times our patients with impeccable hygiene develop rampant decay and we feel helpless because we can’t figure out what’s going on. Now, factor in a lack of saliva and a cariogenic diet, and dental caries quickly gets out of control. Armed with some modern cariology, the mouth can be modified to become a very rewarding work environment.  

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Explain the mixed ecological approach to caries causation
  • Implement caries risk assessment without doing more work
  • Integrate salivary analysis into clinical practice
  • Stop “watching” lesions and see them get smaller
Recommended Audience: Assistant, Dentist, Hygienist
