Remineralization used to be as simple as "put some fluoride on it!" But is the array of products available today claiming “remineralization” pushing the limits of oral healthcare? In a clinical world of dry mouth and acidic beverages, perhaps we’re putting too much faith in an antiquated understanding of what happens on the surface of a tooth. The science of reversing demineralization can be summarized easily, but clinicians would be wise to realize it takes more than an electronegative anion to rebuild the strongest biological substance on earth. How far can we push chemistry before accepting biochemistry makes more sense, and what could go horribly wrong? ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

The hygiene department plays a major role in the health of a practice, some may even say it is the heart of a dental practice. Knowing and improving your hygiene department vital signs can be critical to overall practice success. Hygienists are in unique positions, typically having the most one-on-one contact with the patients. They are typically first in line to present the benefits of preventive, restorative or aesthetic dentistry, providing suggestions and assisting with the decision process, setting the stage for case acceptance. Besides the direct patient care and helping patients understand the best treatment for their wants or conditions, there is also the business side of the profession – what does hygiene contribute to the financial success of the practice? A hygienist who understands the value of their position, the hygiene vital signs and thus the business side of their department can then be prepared for discussions with their employer regarding incorporation of new technology or even wage increases. This CE webinar will provide the participant with the tools and techniques to identify the vital signs of a health hygiene department, show how a successful hygienist can help improve the health of the practice, the health of the patients and promote the value they bring to the table.

We have it all wrong. The sheer number of patients walking around with ongoing periodontal disease confirms that simply telling patient to brush and floss has not worked. Once periodontal disease is resolved, it is now more important than ever to provide the patient with the knowledge and tools to allow them to consistently debride the affected sites in their mouth. The truth is that we too often make recommendations that do not provide the patient with the best chance to achieve adequate daily maintenance. The indisputable evidence that the mouth is connected to the rest of the body compels us to give patients the recommendations that afford them the best chance to adequately maintain their teeth. We can no longer afford to take the same old approach to OHI that we learned in school. In this CE webinar, come and learn the new, scientifically supported approach to patient daily hygiene. You will learn what to look for, what to say and what to use to help your patients enjoy the oral and overall health benefits of achieving and then maintaining a preferred level of oral health.
