We will discuss the need to get to the root of the problem for our patients and ways to not only relieve discomfort but fight the decay process at the same time. This course will discuss the impact of quality saliva, and how the pH and buffering capacity plays a role in our patients suffering from low salivary flow. We will also take a closer look at Sjogren’s Syndrome and the role of the hygienist in helping these high-risk patients.
