Silver diamine fluoride has been used internationally for decades due to its antimicrobial and desensitizing properties. This therapeutic agent has only become available in the Unites States in the recent years and there is a lot of unclarity surrounding its use. As clinicians, it is vital for us to fully understand its benefits and embrace its usage as it can help us better care for our patients. In this CE webinar, we will discuss the mechanisms of action behind SDF, describing how and why it works as a desensitizer and a caries arrest agent. We will outline the best ways you can incorporate it into your treatment protocol and discuss the unique benefits it provides to patients of all ages, including children where SDF is used commonly, and adults where this tool is underutilized.

View Full Description »
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?

According to statistics from the American Dental Association, general practitioners perform more than 50% of all periodontal surgeries, almost half of all bony surgical extractions and 40% of all apicoectomies and root amputations – yet only 17% of all biopsies. Why is that? Performing a soft tissue biopsy is a much simpler procedure than any of the other procedures listed above. Unfortunately, many dentists do not learn how to perform a biopsy. The purpose of this CE webinar is to provide the dentist with a simple step-by-step protocol to perform soft tissue biopsies – with tools that you already have in your office! The discussion will conclude with a discussion of how to bill insurance companies for both the biopsy and for the pathology report.

This CE webinar is designed to expand your clinical knowledge of innovative products that offer more preventative options. If you’re tired of seeing patients come back with caries (and we all know they’re tired of the pain and inconvenience), learn how to stop the caries cycle using more non-invasive treatments. Glass Ionomer sealants are not just for public health patients. They are not only proven effective, but they can be applied in even the most difficult situations because there are no bonding agents or isolation necessary. You’ll not only be treating vulnerable sites and patients, but the slow release of fluoride will keep protecting them between visits. You’ll learn about products that offer your patients sensitivity relief, greater fluoride protection, and the prevention of white spot lesions.
