Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools such as fluoride that have been in use for decades, dental caries remains a significant problem in many populations. The ADA Caries Classification System (ADA CCS) was published to classify all stages of caries lesions and to help discern when surgical restoration versus chemical remineralization is likely needed. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF), a unique chemotherapeutic agent used with or without glass ionomer cement (GIC), may well bridge the gap between remineralization and traditional restoration, especially in certain populations and situations. This CE webinar will review the science and proper placement of SDF and GIC restorations.
