- Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - All-day meeting - Streptococcus Mutans Put a Hit on Me with speaker Brian Novy, DDS.
Location: White's of Westport
How to Eat Candy
Depriving cariogenic bacteria of sugar is the cornerstone of traditional caries management, yet the science of CAMBRA (Caries Management By Risk Assessment) takes cariology to a whole new level and the ability to monitor lesions over time improves clinical outcomes. If youre still telling patients to, Brush, floss, and use fluoride toothpaste youre going to be surprised by the myriad of treatment options available today. Streptococcus mutans has more to fear than stronger fluoride and more of it, as dentistry embraces oral healthcare.
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
1.Identify risk factors leading to caries
2.Explain the role of commensals
3.Implement disease management in practice
4.Safely consume a variety of candy and sugary beverages
5.Prolong the life of restorations in all patients
