ABOUT THE COURSE                                                                                                    6 SCIENTIFIC HOURS

The use of silver fluoride materials in the management of caries is not new, however the upsurge in current interest is driven by the re-introduction of silver fluoride materials in some countries, and recent use in others. Silver fluorides offer a safe, easy, cost effective and well accepted adjunct or alternative to traditional caries management plans. However, it is essential that the clinician is well grounded in differing aspects of the silver fluoride materials, their design principals and use protocols in order to deliver appropriate care, and ‘best practice’ outcomes for their patients.   

Learning objectives:  Participants will understand

  •          The nature of silver fluoride activity in caries management and remineralisation of affected tooth  tissue.
  •          The differences between the various forms of silver fluoride materials currently available across the world and their  purposeful  designs.
  •          Understand appropriate case selection criteria.
  •          The benefits of silver fluoride use in preventing invasive or extensive dental procedures.
  •          How silver fluorides can increase patient compliance even n the youngest patients.
  •          How to incorporate silver fluoride use into dental treatment plans.
  •          How to incorporate silver fluoride use into dental treatment plans.

PRESENTER - Cathy Boyce

Cathy is an Oral Health Therapist, Orofacial Myologist and educator, who has enjoyed a long and rewarding career in the dental profession working in many aspects of dentistry in both public and private clinics. Her use of silver fluorides began in NSW in the early 1980's, and she quickly adopted the use of silver fluoride materials in both public and private clinical settings when they again became available for use in Australia and has used them consistently since their re-introduction. Cathy’s development of the ‘ARM-ER approach’ to caries management and sensitivity (using silver fluorides), is a clinical pathway and resource centre which helps guide fellow clinicians (and their clients) through the option to use silver fluoride materials within the contemporary clinical setting. She has had a long professional association with the leaders in the field and her knowledge and experience are now helping clinicians around the world successfully introduce silver fluoride use to their clinical practice with confidence and competence.
