Let’s face it, sitting through a lecture about dental caries or caries risk assessment isn’t appealing (in fact, it sounds downright boring). However, the science of clinical cariology is beginning to have an impact on restorative techniques and technology. Streptococcus mutans has more to fear than a rheostat, now that we’re armed with salivary diagnostics and bioactive materials.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand how to intervene in the caries process.
  • Learn how to change caries risk factors with minimal resistance.
  • Learn how to improve the prognosis of restorative treatment.

Subject: Continuing Care
Primary Audience(s): Dentist, Hygienist
Additional Audience(s): EFDA/Dental Assistant, Front Office
