The objective of this presentation is to provide an overview of currently accepted, evidence-based and/or expert opinion recommendations for the prevention and management of dental caries in dental practice. Discussions are centered on current concepts for caries lesion detection, including thresholds for caries tissue removal, and a review of caries management interventions for caries disease management in at risk patients.
At the end of this program attendees will be able to:
Discuss current principles for modern caries management and their applications to clinical care.
Compare and contrast the evidence supporting different strategies for the non-surgical management of non cavitated caries lesions (including sealants, fluorides, calcium based strategies and antimicrobials) .
Compare and contrast the evidence supporting different strategies for the non-surgical management of cavitated caries lesions, with a focus on Silver Diamine Fluoride for use in adults and children.
Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different thresholds for caries removal when considering management of caries lesions.
This presentation will provide an overview of Dr. Boyd's research in human nutrition, anthropology, and craniofacial development.
