Ensuring Success Using Glass Ionomer Restoratives
Virtual Lecture, • May 27, 2021 • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET
Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools that 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.  No Prerequisites required for this program.
