« back to classes page
For more than a century, dentists have been removing caries based on the concept of drill, remove, and restore. Evidence has shown that the remaining dentin is an essential feature for long-term pulpal health and removing excess dentinal tooth structure and encroaching on the pulpal tissue directly correlate to potential negative pulpal outcomes. The purpose of this educational presentation is to provide dental professionals with information on how to better evaluate the removal of carious tissue.  Our speaker is a clinical professor at the UI College of Dentistry and co-director of the Advance Education Program in Operative Dentistry.   She will discuss the technique that preserves dentin in the restorative process and how it improves long-term clinical outcomes along with the evidence and rationale behind the new guidelines for caries removal at different stages.  Our target audience is dental assistants, dental hygienists, and dentists.  Approved dental continuing education hours will be awarded.
 
Objectives:  1.) Identify the need to better evaluate the removal of carious tissue, 2) Discuss the technique that preserves dentin in the restorative process and ultimately improves long-term clinical outcomes, and 3) Describe the evidence and rationale behind the new guidelines for caries removal at different stages.
