Dental Caries Infection: A pH Mediated Disease

Saliva is one of the body’s most effective means for protecting the tooth enamel against acid. It is important to have adequate saliva to be a pH buffer. When plaque pH drops below 5.5, tooth decay can occur. Studies indicate that saliva may be useful for detecting heart disease, acid reflux, diabetes and other conditions. It’s time to shift dentistry focus from finding the cavity to treating the caries disease process. The good news is this can bring new profit to your practice. When patients can see, understand and own the disease process that has been invisible in the past; watching and waiting for breakdown makes no sense. This hands-on, interactive course focuses on three minimally invasive levels of prevention and early treatment using up-to-date technologies and systems.
