Summary:

“Extrinsic Tooth Bleaching: Science, Success & Risks"

Extrinsic tooth bleaching has become increasingly popular in recent years, both in dental practice and with the purchase of over-the-counter kits for use at home. While there are some differences between systems, almost all are based on the generation of hydrogen peroxide as the active component. Despite a number of known risks associated with peroxides, to date the dental experience appears to have been very positive. This presentation will explore the growth in popularity of tooth bleaching, explain the scientific basis for the use of hydrogen peroxide, review briefly the law as applied to cosmetic bleaching products, and consider why at least in dental practice the experiences to date have been generally favourable. Wider issues will also be explored, including the availability on the internet of bleaching systems that far exceed the safe limits for both home and in-office use and the implications for health and general dental practice.

This interactive lecture will cover the diagnosis and management of common and important oral mucosal lesions. Participants will use 'turning point' technology to give their opinion anonymously on the different lesions.
