Patients that practice poor eating habits such as consuming sugary foods, fermented carbs, or too many calories, are at a high risk for developing caries. Sealants were introduced to as a preventative measure to reduce caries in young children. While sealants are more commonly recommended for children by dental professionals, they should be considered for any individual with a high caries risk. Over the past decade, dentistry has transitioned from a passive, reactive repair model to an active approach that promotes proactive care. This CE webinar will introduce participants to dynamic, bioactive materials that mimic nature and support and environment favorable of remineralization and promotes the natural healing process in the oral cavity. Participants will also learn about the importance of incorporating calcium and phosphate ions into dental materials.

During this CE webinar, we will
• Review the role of diet and nutrition for oral health promotion and disease prevention
• Explore dentistry’s transition from a passive, reactive repair to an active approach that promotes patient education, prevention, and proactive care.
• Examine the characteristics of water-based dental materials that have the potential for dynamic behaviors that support an environment favorable for remineralization and the natural healing process
• Explain the role of calcium and phosphate ions in dental materials and their relationship with the bioavailability of fluoride in the oral cavity.
• Discuss sealant materials that form a positive association with water in the oral cavity to create an exceptional marginal seal.
• Equip dental hygienists with evidence-based knowledge to position them to recommend products for their office.   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
