CE Topic: Trends in Minimally Invasive Dentistry: Learn about the evidence for using SDF and SMART to treat and prevent dental caries.  This course is for Dentists and their Dental Team!

There is an increasing awareness and interest in minimally invasive treatment options from patients and dentists. Dr. Jeanette MacLean will review some of the emerging treatments options along with a brief overview of their clinical use. Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a revolutionary approach to combating caries in a non-invasive manner.
Since its 2014 FDA clearance in the US and a widely publicized 2016 feature in the New York Times, there has been tremendous interest surrounding the use of SDF from patients and dentists. Learn the principles of case selection, informed consent, treatment planning, and a clinical protocol for SDF.
Learn how to restore cavities in a quick, effective, and painless way using SDF, Glass Ionomer Cement, and stainless steel crowns, known as Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (SMART) and the Hall Technique. Find out how offering minimally-invasive options like SDF, SMART, and Hall can attract new patients, improve patient satisfaction, and increase internal marketing and word of mouth referrals to your practice, while improving oral health and increasing access to care.
Unsightly congenital enamel defects and acquired white spot lesions can be troublesome for many patients. Historically, these blemishes have been treated with invasive and costly resin bondings and veneers. Dealing with enamel defects can prove particularly troublesome for young patients, which when left untreated, often become a source of embarrassment for the patient. Or worse, some lesions may progress to cavitations, particularly post-orthodontic white spot lesions. This course will show you three simple and painless options to manage enamel defects. MI Paste, ICON Resin Infiltration, and etch/bleach seal can improve or even completely reverse the appearance of congenital enamel defects and white spot lesions while preserving tooth structure and repairing the patient’s natural enamel.
