Putting the ADA Caries Classification System to Work in Your Practice
Member Price: $49.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $69.00
Course Created on: 11/03/2016
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=81|31481
Description:
The most common sign of dental caries disease is the caries lesion. It derives from an imbalance in the dynamic demineralization and remineralization process resulting in a net loss of mineral over time. A system that categorizes the location, site of origin, extent, and when possible, activity level of caries lesions consistently over time can be used to determine which clinical treatments and therapeutic interventions are most appropriate to control and treat these lesions. The ADA Caries Classification System (CCS) offers clinicians an approach to capture the spectrum of caries disease presentations ranging from clinically unaffected (sound) tooth structure through noncavitated initial lesions to extensively cavitated advanced lesions. The ADA CCS supports the range of clinical management options needed to treat both noncavitated and cavitated caries lesions. This course will provide clinicians with guidance about how to operationalize the ADA CCS and insight about how it can improve the clinical management of patient caries lesions.

The Rationale for CBCT Images in the Dental Office
Member Price: $0.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $0.00
Course Created on: 08/25/2017
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=117|33685
Description:

This course discusses the use of radiation within the dental office.  It has been projected that the use of CBCT imaging in dental offices has doubled in the last 20 years.  With this increase in usage, radiation exposure to the patient has also increased.  The increase in radiation requires the dental practitioner to adhere to ALADA, or As Low As Diagnostically Acceptable.  This concept states that the dental practitioner only take images that are required to diagnose a potential problem.  The Low Dose Radiation Protocol can effectively reduce the radiation exposure to the patient, while allowing the diagnostic image to remain the same quality as a regular radiation dosed image.
