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.

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.
