Morning Session Information

The 4 C’s in Solving the Caries Puzzle


Caries Detection & Assessment System
Case-based protocol
Calcium/Phosphate & Fluoride

Objectives: 4 CEUs

Engaging in this program, the participant will be able to:

• Identify the need for implementing a Caries Risk Assessment for all patients in a practice
• Differentiate the stages of an active carious lesion and identify when remineralization therapy or surgical     
   restorative treatment is indicated
• Discuss all current dietary challenges that place a patient at greater risk for dental and root caries
• Compare the latest products engineered to deliver “calcium and phosphate” and how it interacts to improve
  fluoride uptake
• Define the mechanism of action and benefits of Silver Diamine Fluoride

Course Description:
This program introduces a suggested “caries risk assessment” survey to identify individual patient risk level for dental caries. Mapping a treatment plan is only successful when the dental team understands all factors that influence the caries pattern and prevalence based on medical history, lifestyle changes, behaviors and disease factors.

The program will preview several case studies that begin with CAMBRA and design a mapping to incorporate appropriate therapies and patient-applied practices to reverse early carious patterns. At the final segment of this seminar, the discussion will encourage the participants to inquire and share their successes with all latest remineralization products and how they plan to improve their day to day practice using evidence-based science.
