Minimal Invasive Dentistry
Hands-on course
13 Feb 2019, 09:00 - 18:00 CAPP Training Institute | Dubai | UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry

Course Outline

The morning session will consist of lectures covering minimally invasive dentistry and the afternoon practical will include minimally invasive dentistry, ozone, the latest methods for caries removal, use of GIC's, adhesives and composites,  and the placement of the conservative new minimally invasive One Visit Crowns.

Course Outcome

On completion of this day, the delegate will be able to have understanding of the principles of minimal invasive dentistry:

  • Comprehensively detect and diagnose carious lesions (occlusal caries attached dental plaque, proximal or smooth surface lesions. Electrical conductance, quantitative laser fluorescence, laser fluorescence, tuned aperture computer tomography, optical coherence tomography.)
  • Apply effective treatment to identified carious lesions (remineralisation and pH, adjustment of oral environment. Air abrasion. Cavitation. Minimal cavity designs. Adhesive materials such as glass ionomer cements (GICs). Resin based composites/dentine bonding agents. Lamination. Tunnel/internal/mininbox/slot preparations. Laser cavity preparations.)
  • Monitor those patients given minimal invasive surgery and evaluate (portfolio of patients, their needs vs treatments, outcomes, corrective/further treatments.)
    Learn the latest methods and research with tooth whitening
  • Learn all about and place, bond, finish and polish the new minimally invasive One Visit Crowns
