Come and enjoy a two course dinner for World Oral Health Day at The Pagoda While listening to our new exciting presenter Laura Drummond!
Remineralisation – the building blocks for the future
In caries management, it can be tricky to move our mindset from the reactive model – waiting for disease to occur, to the preventative caries management model – reversing early tissue breakdown and preventing disease from occurring in the first place.
Early caries detection devices and advances in remineralisation technology over the recent years have been exciting. Coupled with experienced risk assessment and management solutions we can move away from “let’s watch it” and have a more proactive way of steering our patients towards oral health.
In this presentation, Laura will discuss remineralisation, the active ingredients available and how they contribute to remineralising enamel. Laura will review the technology we have available for early caries detection and finally offer considerations of caries management options when assessing patient’s risk for disease.
The presentation also discusses:
The change of mindset from waiting for caries to occur vs treating the risk factors and early demineralisation there for focusing on primary and secondary prevention.
- Bacterial screening
