Optimal prevention calls for critical skills in research and guiding patients’ compliance practices. Today’s patient profile presents a variety of risk factors which impact their dental and overall health. As fluoride is still the gold standard in preventive therapy, the latest innovations in calcium and phosphates prove to be significant in how the fluoride works in the oral environment. This CE webinar will review the indications for fluoride treatment during office visits as well as recommendations for take-home application while addressing the most common oral symptoms. Patients of all ages require an accurate risk assessment in identifying which therapies treat symptoms associated with xerostomia, dentinal hypersensitivity, gingivitis, erosion and early stages of root and dental caries.
