    A routine exam that discovers a sensitive, brown, crumbling and carious first permanent molar in a previously asymptomatic 6 year old is a challenging clinical scenario for the doctor and patient alike. Can I get this tooth numb enough? Will the restoration hold? Should I seal the remaining groves? Is a permanent stainless steel crown the best solution? What about or extraction? Turns out, that the current literature gives us pediatric dentists evidence-based guidance on how to set up these teeth, and ultimately the patients, for long term success. This lecture will take a deep dive in to the composition of the hypominerlized molar. We will also be describing different strategies for restoring these teeth with a focus on sensitivity reduction and long term preservation of enamel. The restoration of peg-shaped laterals is a challenging procedure for the restorative dentist. What esthetic and functional factors should be considered during the diagnosis and treatment planning phases? What restorative materials are currently available to restore peg-shaped laterals? What restorative strategies and clinical tips can be used during the restorative phase? This presentation will provide information from a conservative esthetic dentistry perspective to help answering these and many other questions.

    Traditional operative treatment using different restorative materials, has been used for over a century to treat the dental destruction caused by dental caries. It is invasive, technique sensitive, costly, and requires significant cooperation from the patient. Many patients are unable to receive this treatment because they are too young, anxious, have medical conditions that limit their cooperation, or lack the resources to access care. The advent of new materials, concepts and products, have allowed the introduction of Minimal Intervention Approaches to manage caries lesions that allow us to give patients an alternative option. This presentation will discuss the use of Silver Diamine Fluoride, ITR/ART and the Hall Technique as Minimal Intervention Approaches in the management of caries in Pediatric Dentistry. Learning Objectives: 1. Differentiate the concepts of minimally invasive dentistry, minimal intervention approaches and personalized optimal interventions understanding the needs and advantages of these approaches. 2. Understand the scientific basis for current recommendations for SDF, ITR/ART and the Hall Technique as well as their indications, pros and cons. 3. Acquire the knowledge and techniques required to implement these approaches into clinical practice.
