Bioactive this, bioactive that. We are being bombarded with this term in
advertisements. As with all new concepts (this one really isn’t new), there is
legitimate excitement but also significant hype. Starting with the definition and
history of bioactives in medicine and dentistry, Huffines will guide attendees
through the role of bioactives in endodontics, oral surgery, implant dentistry and
restorative applications. Special attention will be paid to the role of bioactives in
the management of deep carious lesions.

that most impact dentistry will be described along with the oral side-effects of

adults seen in dental practice and will offer the latest on the prevention of

Saturday Courses
Sa282 - Restorative Challenges in Seniors
Time: 8 - 11 AM
Room: ,
Type: Registered    Handouts: No
Dentist Fee: $95.00  Other Fee: $65.00

Most Americans now enter the senior years with natural dentitions. However,
aging causes changes in the oral cavity which have a direct impact on restorative
dentistry. Age-related changes to pulpal tissues and dentin reduce bonding.
Attrition, abrasion, erosion and other tooth wear phenomenon affect restorative
contours, material longevity and occlusal harmony. Xerostomia increases caries
risk, especially root caries, and must be properly addressed to achieve long-lasting
results. Learn practical skills and techniques to use immediately in the
booming senior market.
