WebsiteAssociation of Continuing Dental Educators logo

Course Description

Prevention and management of dental caries should be guided by the best evidence available. The objective of this presentation is to provide an overview of the most recent ADA clinical practice guidelines, derived from a systematic review of the literature, for the non-restorative management of non-cavitated and cavitated caries lesions in primary and permanent teeth. This will include a discussion of strategies such as SDF, sealants, fluoride varnish, resin infiltration, and chlorhexidine varnish, among others.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this lecture, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss evidence-based approaches for use of non-restorative strategies for arrest of caries lesions in coronal surfaces of primary teeth
  • Discuss evidence-based approaches for use of non-restorative strategies for arrest of caries lesions in coronal surfaces of permanent teeth
  • Discuss evidence-based approaches for use of non-restorative strategies for arrest of caries lesions in root surfaces of permanent teeth
