"Less is More: Minimally Invasive Treatment Options for Enamel Caries and Defects"
Location: Sequoia North Ballroom E-H
2.5 Hour CE Credit
Of interest to Dentists, Students & Residents, Dental Auxiliaries and Dental Office Staff

Course Summary:
Unsightly congenital enamel defects and acquired white spot lesions can be troublesome for many patients. Historically, these blemishes have been treated with invasive and costly resin bonding and veneers. Dealing with enamel defects can prove particularly troublesome for young patients, which when left untreated, often become a source of embarrassment for the patient. Or worse, some lesions may progress to cavitation, particularly post-orthodontic white spot lesions. In this course, the instructor will review three simple and painless options to manage enamel defects. MI Paste, Icon Resin Infiltration, and etch/bleach seal can improve or even completely reverse the appearance of congenital enamel defects and white spot lesions while preserving tooth structure and repairing the patient’s natural enamel. Decision making on when to surgically intervene for incipient approximal lesions in the posterior also presents a challenge for the dental practitioner. This course will review two non-invasive treatment options to consider in lieu of a “watch and wait” approach. Resin infiltration and silver diamine fluoride are alternatives to the surgical management of non-cavitated proximal lesions which preserve sound tooth structure.

Course Objectives:

Presented by:
Jeanette MacLean, DDS is the owner of Affiliated Children’s Dental Specialists in Glendale, Arizona, and mother of two. She received her dental degree, with honors, from the University of Southern California in 2003 and completed her specialty training in pediatric dentistry in 2005 at Sunrise Children’s Hospital through the University of Nevada School of Medicine.
