SDF and Beyond: Patient-Centered Brush-On Therapies for Caries Management
CE Credits
1 hour

Minimally invasive care (MIC) in dentistry is an alternative to the traditional surgical manner of managing and treating dental caries. MIC, which aims to keep teeth functional throughout a person’s lifespan by preserving natural tooth structure, has evolved rapidly since silver diamine fluoride (SDF) was introduced in the United States in 2015. More change is on the way.  

Along with SDF, which is becoming more popular, MIC has grown to include non-staining peptide-guided enamel regeneration P11-4 and povidone-iodine. In this webinar, our expert panel will explore these minimally invasive therapies and how to offer them based on patient needs. They’ll also discuss how to empower oral health teams to use them to provide patient-centered care and how to navigate future advancements. 

Learning Objectives

  • Explain how silver diamine fluoride, povidone iodine, and peptide-guided enamel regeneration are effective for caries management. 
  • Select appropriate brush-on caries management therapies, including silver diamine fluoride, povidone iodine, and peptide-guided enamel regeneration based on patient characteristics.  
  • Review the clinical evidence supporting minimally invasive techniques for caries management.
  • Demonstrate application techniques for minimally invasive dentistry interventions.
