Dr. Yasmi O. Crystal DMD, MSc, FAAPD Clinical Professor of Pediatric Dentistry NYU College of Dentistry

Its ease of use and affordability make it a valuable therapy for specific cases, in spite of the dark staining that is characteristic with its caries arrest. Understanding its mode of action, expected effects and limitations will aid the dentist in the incorporation of this new therapy into practice.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Become familiar with SDF composition, mechanisms of action, indications, drawbacks and limitations.
  2. Be introduced to existing guidelines for use of SDF
  3. Understand the case selection and directions for use for its successful incorporation in practice.

With this in mind, the lecture will focus on:

1. Describing the variety of problems that can be encountered when utilizing implants to replace missing teeth.
2. Discussing in detail the plaque-induced conditions affecting dental implants that represent the most common type of implant complication
