About the Course
This lecture will provide the attendee with the most up-to-date information regarding emerging technologies in caries detection and caries risk assessment. Dental caries, the most prevalent disease in humans, affects 97% of the population in their lifetime. Yet, dental professionals are still primarily using >100 year-old technologies to diagnose this most prevalent infectious disease. Recently, new ways of assessing and dealing with dental caries as an infectious disease have been proposed, and new products have been introduced. It is anticipated that the progression of this most significant technological development in dentistry will do more to change the way we practice than anything in recent decades. This course will review the science behind these developments, and will introduce clinically relevant information to practitioners to prepare them to understand related new information as it is introduced to the professionals and consumers. In addition, application of these techniques to early intervention protocols including the use of silver diamine fluoride and other agents to mitigate the impact of caries will be described.
