Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools like fluoride 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. Dr. Young’s presentation reviews the science and proper placement of SDF and GIC restorations.

Specifically, you and/or your allied dental health professionals will learn: to classify caries lesions and determine appropriate treatment using the ADA CCS  the science of using SDF, partial caries removal, and GIC to treat caries chemically  proper placement technique of both SDF and GIC, separately and in combination  how to place a Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Treatment SMART restoration
