DE0413: USPHS Quarterly CDE Webinar: Ensuring Success Using Glass Ionomer Restoratives [Recorded Webinar]
Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools that have been in use for decades, dental caries remains a significant problem in many populations. The science and chemistry for using glass ionomer restoratives for its unique ability to treat caries lesions chemically will be presented. Success is often determined by correct placement techniques. Dr. Young will review how to properly use glass restoratives with, and without, the use of silver diamine fluoride [SDF] using minimally invasive methodology to bridge the gap between remineralization and traditional restoration.
This quarterly webinar for USPHS dentists is available live from 1:00 - 2:00 ET, and a recorded version will also be available afterwards.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. When to drill and when not to, selective caries removal, and glass ionomer cement to treat caries chemically
2. Proper placement technique of glass restorative materials separately and in combination with SDF
3. How to place a silver modified atraumatic restorative treatment [SMART] restoration
