Write Review

This course presents a simple approach for treating caries based on the risk factors of our patients. We will discuss treatment of the patient with low salivary flow, poor oral hygiene, frequent consumption of sugar and low exposure to fluoride. The protocols and techniques for treating each type of high caries risk patient will also be discussed. Finally, we will review the mechanism of action and evidence for fluoride.
