Smile Design and Implant Center continues their lecture series on September 5th at 7 p.m. with a presentation on Minimally Invasive Dentistry. They will explain the concept and treatments of Minimally Invasive Dentistry and showcase technologies used.
Minimally Invasive Dentistry is a growing field in dentistry. The objective is to preserve as much tooth and gum structure as possible. It is aligned closely with preventive dentistry and involves the patient in taking responsibility for their oral health and uses strategies like Xylitol therapy. “With an improvement in diet and oral hygiene and the addition of mineral laden Xylitol products it is possible to change the environment in the mouth, raise the pH and reverse early carious lesions (cavities),” says Dr. Edwards.
Minimally Invasive Dentistry uses technology such as the Diagnodent – Laser Cavity Detector and the operating microscope to find caries early. When found, the use of air abrasion to remove only the decay and preserve the strength of the tooth gives the best long term prognosis for a tooth.
