Restoring the High-Risk Caries Patient

Restoring the patient with rampant caries can be frustrating to both the dental team and the patient. Worse still is having a newly restored patient quickly return with failed restorations. Learn how to incorporate new insights about caries initiation and progression into protocols and techniques that increase restorative success. Learn the value of discriminating between caries-infected and caries-affected dentin. Evaluate the evidence and learn the techniques for the controversial new step-wise and “incomplete” caries removal protocols. Learn when and how to use the new ceramic caries removal burs and caries indicator dyes designed to minimize pulpal exposure. The influence of different restorative materials on secondary caries may be a surprise. Clinical pearls on the clinical application of bioactive restorative and luting materials will be clearly presented.
