How to Optimize Cavity Care and Staff Comfort with Glass Hybrids and Silver
Diamine Fluoride 

The pandemic has put stress on dentistry with clinics choosing various responses of whether and how to adjust. Minimally invasive, maximally effective dentistry offers options that avoid production of infectious aerosols and can safely engage personnel who may be concerned about formerly routine procedures. With more efficiency than ever, pits and fissures in primary or permanent teeth can be sealed or filled with Glass Hybrids. Non-cavitated or cavitated and cleansable caries lesions can be treated with Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF). The ADA Guideline on "non-restorative treatments" documents that treating caries without a drill has become standard. Now the whole team can get involved in the management of caries in a manner that optimizes productivity for the clinic and cavity control for the patient.

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET • Jeanette MacLean, DDS, DABPD, FAAPD
The Glass Menagerie: Material Selection for Varying Clinical Scenarios
Hydrophilic, bioactive, bulk-fill, biomimetic, desensitizing, remineralizing; The chemical and physical properties of glass ionomer restoratives make them an ideal dental material choice.  For clinicians that are either new to glass restoratives or looking to expand their use of these materials, the wide array of products can sometimes create confusion. Dr. MacLean will use case studies to demonstrate how she utilizes different materials to achieve clinical success. 

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET • Douglas A. Young DDS, EdD, MS, MBA
Ensuring Success Using Glass Restoratives
Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools have been in use for decades, dental caries remains a significant problem in many populations. The science and chemistry for using glass ionomer restoratives for its unique ability to treat caries lesions chemically will be presented. Success is often determined by correct placement techniques.  Dr. Young will review how to properly use glass restoratives with, and without, the use of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) using minimally invasive methodology to bridge the gap between remineralization and traditional restoration.
