The Pharmacological Management of Caries -
The pharmacological management of carious tooth structure requires minimal infrastructure to kill the bacteria within the lesion and remineralise carious dentine into a protective caries resistant layer upon which an atraumatic restoration can be placed either at the time of the procedure or at a later date.
This simple management protocol can be efficiently applied in both the private and public dental sectors and in remote locations lacking the infrastructure required for traditional care.
Registration starts at 18.30 with refreshments and a light finger buffet.
Lecture starts at 19.00 and finished at 21.00 with Questions and answers at the end.
