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. The mouth is a remarkable environment that cariologists are finally beginning to understand, and so can you. Come learn everything you didn’t know about plaque and the amazing organisms that make the mouth a wonderful place to work.
- Explain the mixed ecological approach to caries causation
- Apply Evidence Based and novel preventive therapies
- Quickly identify high caries risk patients before they develop disease
- Stop “watching” lesions and see them get smaller
