Program Purpose / Objectives

This course will discuss the early diagnosis of tooth demineralization, focusing on the use of quantitative light fluorescence (QLF). Intervention with fluoride (including fluoride varnish), glass ionomer surface protectants, sealants and minimally invasive products and procedures will be presented. Risk assessment utilization in decision-making for restorative care will be discussed and related to recommendations made by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for restorative dentistry care in children.

The history and formulation of glass ionomer cements and their development through the contemporary photopolymerized glass ionomers will be discussed. Clinical utilization, including advantages and disadvantages, will be presented. Compomers, their unique formulation, and clinical utilization will also be addressed. The effectiveness of caries inhibition and remineralization enhancement of fluoride-releasing glass ionomer cements and resins will be addressed, demonstrating fluoride release may not be directly related to caries prevention.

The use of composite resins in Pediatric Dentistry will be reviewed, including the concept of using hybrid, flowable and condensable composite resins. Appropriate clinical utilization, indications, contraindications, advantages and disadvantages will be discussed.

The explanation of why the esthetic enamel microabrasion technique is effective and how to explain this to patients and parents will be discussed. Why the technique enhances enamel caries inhibition and how microabrasion can be enhanced with bleaching will be presented.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will:

*be exposed to early diagnosis of enamel demineralization and understand preventive regimens available, as well as appropriate intervention with these agents, using minimally invasive techniques

*understand pediatric dentistry standards of care using risk assessment in decision-making * have an understanding of the clinical utilization of traditional, photopolymerized glass ionomer cements and compomers, including indications and contraindications.

*be exposed to the newer commercially available composite resins and dentin bonding resins, understand their mechanism of action and visualize clinical utilization of these materials.

*see the available fluoride-releasing restorative materials marketed today and understand their ability to inhibit primary and secondary caries, as well as remineralize incipient carious lesions.

*have an understanding of the mechanism of action for microabrasion and be able to clinically apply this information during case selection and treatment, as well as understand the safety and effectiveness of bleaching alone and in conjunction with microabrasion.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
