Spotlight on IAPD Consensus Recommendations

Spotlight on IAPD Consensus Recommendations

Did you read the IAPD Consensus Recommendation on Restorative Dentistry yet? This is a free resource developed by the IAPD Science Committee, available in English, French and Spanish! Each IAPD Consensus-based Recommendation or Statement was evaluated to determine applicability to global clinical practices.Contemporary management of dental caries includes identification of an individual’s risk for caries progression, understanding of the disease process for that individual, and management with appropriate preventive services, supplemented by restorative therapy where indicated. The benefits of restorative therapy include: maintaining tooth vitality, removing cavitation or defects to eliminate areas that are susceptible to caries, restoring the integrity of tooth structure, preventing the spread of infection into the dental pulp, and preventing the shifting of teeth due to loss of tooth structure. Read the full IAPD Recommendation on this topic now!

IAPD Members have access to 300 past lecture recordings in the IAPD Video Lecture Centre.
