In this course, the participant will learn about the different types of temporary dental materials available and how to safely utilize them for a patient who needs to have a tooth temporized to get them out of pain, until the patient can be seen by a dentist for definitive treatment. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recognizes that unique clinical circumstances can result in challenges in restorative care for infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special health care needs. When circumstances do not permit traditional cavity preparation and/or placement of traditional dental restorations or when caries control is necessary prior to placement of definitive restorations, interim therapeutic restorations (ITR) 1 may be beneficial and are best utilized as part of comprehensive care in the dental home. The course will include a review of the current Nebraska statutes and appropriate dental materials and procedures allowed for Expanded Function Dental Hygienists. There will also be a “hands on” portion of the seminar utilizing the temporary dental materials placed and finished in Dentiforms.
At the end of this course, the participants will:
- understand when and how temporary restorations should be placed.
- understand what materials to use.
- understand the important role of temporary restorations in the management of oral health.
