An Update on Demineralization/Remineralization

Mark E. Jensen, MS, DDS, PhD; Robert V. Faller, BS

This course was one of the first courses available on dentalcare.com.  The course has been updated without changing the original content, which is still valid.  The update includes information on new technologies emerging for caries detection and evaluation as well as information on the evidence-based approach for dentistry in the area of demineralization and remineralization.  This primarily includes the use of fluorides with information and resources on how to approach evidence-based dentistry for clinical practice.  This course begins with an historical perspective on caries as a concern in the 1940's as a major public health problem and moves to the clinical practice today...from cure to prevention.  An up-to-date understanding of the caries process in both enamel and root caries are detailed through the discussion of demineralization/ remineralization.  This course has been widely used by clinical staff (dental assistants, hygienists, and dentists in clinical practice) as well as students from all over the world.  This course is not meant to be a comprehensive cariology course but rather an introduction to the concepts of demineralization and remineralization and how they can and should be incorporated into clinical practice.  Upon completion of this course, participants will understand the continued need for fluoride to help protect against the ongoing challenge to tooth structure, secondary lesions and root caries.  Participants will also appreciate the need to examine the literature and evidence when applying clinical preventive techniques for caries prevention.

Basic Techniques for Management of the Infant and Toddler Patient

Steven Schwartz, DDS

As the trend in the reduction of caries in the patient population continues and dentists scramble to find ways to maintain business by attracting new patients to their practice, many ignore a potential source of patients that exist in their practices… the infant and toddler pediatric patient.  Introducing the pediatric dental patient during infancy and the toddler stage can have a mutual benefit for the child, parent, and dentist.  Behavior modification techniques such as non-traumatic physical restraint and desensitization may be used to gain patient cooperation.  Early examination can uncover potential problems thereby reducing future negative consequences of delayed intervention.  Informing parents of the advantages of early dental care for their child is the most effective marketing strategy.

Susan Higham, BSC, PhD, CBiol, MSB

This is part 7 of a 10-part series entitled Caries Process and Prevention Strategies.  This course establishes the concept of dental erosion as a condition that is distinct from caries, and as an emerging public health issue with increasing prevalence in people of all ages.  Although often generalized under the heading of “tooth wear,” there are actually two distinct tooth surface loss processes that must be taken into account.  Tooth surface loss can be the result of physical mechanisms, such as attrition and abrasion, or chemical mechanisms triggered by acid.  Both of these mechanisms are discussed, as well as the chemical, biological, and behavioral factors that increase or reduce risk of tooth surface loss.  In addition, diagnosis and prevention measures related to dental erosion are introduced.

When a patient presents with a bleeding disorder, how should dental providers proceed to manage the complexity of the case?  Management of such medically-complex patients involves “an understanding of basic physiology of hemostasis,” which can greatly enhance one's comprehension of most bleeding and clotting disorders.1  In addition to this composite of knowledge, clinical application of recent evidence-based recommendations can contribute to the management of these patients who may potentially require specialized medical and/or dental care.

Diabetes: A Multifaceted Syndrome Treatment Considerations in Dentistry

Lynne H. Slim, RDH, BSDH, MSDH; Cynthia A. Stegeman, RDH, EdD, RD, LD, CDE, FAND

Recognized as a major global public health problem and the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., proper management of diabetes will positively impact a patient’s oral health, especially as it relates to risk for periodontal disease.  Determining whether or not medical issues warrant immediate care before elective dental procedures is an important part of patient protocol and needs to be instituted by dental practitioners.  Better overall communication and ongoing interaction between medical and oral healthcare providers is needed to improve the overall health of individuals with diabetes.

Diagnostic and Prognostic Evaluation for the Edentulous Patient

Joseph J. Massad, DDS

As far back as dental history has been recorded, the number one perplexing aspect is determining the outcome and patient satisfaction in complete denture therapy before treatment is started.

With today’s knowledge of the past century, data has been compiled on specific problematic areas preventing an acceptable prognosis.  This video presentation will review a method of evaluating the edentulous patient and addressing known documented factors leading to success and/or failure by predicting the outcome prior to starting treatment.  With the use of an appropriate assessment and examination formula, the practitioner should be able to reasonably predict the outcome.

Diagnostic Guidelines for Blood Pressure Screening Techniques

Proper patient care includes obtaining diagnostic intraoral and extraoral radiographs which are essential to patient assessment, periodontal therapy, treatment and re-evaluation.  Radiographs are especially helpful during instrumentation as a guide for detection of calculus deposits or faulty restorations, as well as the diagnosis of dental caries, alveolar bone loss, pulpal changes, and anatomical imperfections in tooth and root surfaces.  It is imperative that dental professionals are competent in taking radiographs to ensure diagnostically acceptable images, while keeping the amount of radiation exposure to patients at a minimum.
