Learning Objectives

  • Define minimally invasive dentistry.
  • Discuss ways dental professionals use minimally invasive dentistry.
  • Explain minimally invasive dental hygiene therapy.

Do you ever provide preventive therapy and feel as though something is missing?  You’ve used mechanical, hand instrumentation, and polishing agents, yet biofilm is still present.  Technology has provided dental hygienists with an effective and efficient way to disrupt biofilm minimizing the use of mechanical and hand instrumentation yet providing a systematic, predictable approach to biofilm disruption.  

 Minimally invasive therapies provide clinicians with the best way to safely remove biofilm from around implants, crowns, primary teeth, and natural teeth using a non-abrasive powder, warm water, and air.  This course will provide a better understanding of dental hygiene therapies and how to introduce them to your team and patients.  In addition, this interactive course will guide you through a systematic approach to disease diagnosis and patient motivation through risk assessment while achieving optimal results based on individualized precision patient care.
