There are many clues that provide evidence of disease, such as occlusal wear, recession, bleeding, fissured tongues, erythemic tissues, incipient lesions and many more. Determining our patients’ high-risk factors for oral disease and systemic health is multi-factorial, and our role as dental professionals allows us to evaluate the first signs of disease.
This program will help you and your team review the patients’ risk factors in-depth, while empowering the clinician to compare clinical technologies that align with the patient’s lifestyle to reduce disease.
- Review the role of pH in the caries risk assessment and learn to identify stages of demineralization and remineralization
- Learn how to expedite risk assessments to enhance patient education and prevention
- Prioritize the patients’ high-risk factors to comprehensively decrease their risks of oral disease and systemic health
- Evaluate the latest clinical technologies and homecare technologies to decrease patients’ oral and systemic disease risk
