In October 15-16 of 2016, the 3rd International aesthetic medicine congress will be organized by the Georgian Aesthetic Medicine Association. The leading specialists of the field will present the most innovative lectures about the aesthetic medicine achievements in the last years. The congress will proceed with the partnership of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and International Association of Aesthetic Medicine.
The Vice President of Scientific Research Center RADIX, Gvantsa Tabaghua is invited to present the speech in aesthetic dentistry at “Home bleaching teeth whitening products: new statements on safety and effectiveness”.
Over the past two decades, tooth whitening or bleaching has become one of the most popular aesthetic dental treatments. Since the 1800s, the initial focus of dentists in this area was on in-office bleaching of non-vital teeth that had discolored as a result of trauma to the tooth or from endodontic treatment. By the late 1980s, the field of tooth whitening dramatically changed with the development of dentist-prescribed, home-applied bleaching (tray bleaching) and other products and techniques for vital tooth bleaching that could be applied both in the dental office and at home.
In a modern world tooth bleaching is one of the most conservative and cost-effective dental treatments to improve or enhance a person’s smile. However, tooth bleaching is not risk-free and only limited long-term clinical data are available on the side effects of tooth bleaching. Accordingly, tooth bleaching is best performed under professional supervision and following a pre-treatment dental examination and diagnosis. Concerns regarding the safety of all bleaching treatments and products have long existed, but were heightened since the introduction of at-home bleaching.
The lecture will be focused on peroxides and their use as active ingredients in tooth bleaching materials. Important concerns related to patient examination and diagnoses.
