Evidence based decision making is the framework for all facets of dental hygiene therapies and polishing is an inherent part. Over the past 40 years, a debate has swirled as to the benefits or challenges of polishing which included potential loss of enamel for primarily a cosmetic procedure. Essential selective polishing is based on scientific and clinical evidence—dental hygienists should select cleaning or polishing agents according to the individual patient's needs.

During this CE webinar, the student will
• identify criteria for essential polishing
• review indications for use of polishing vs cleaning agents
• review selection and techniques for use of mechanical devices for essential polishing
• identify appropriate infection control protocol and compliance during polishing protocol   ( disclaimer , ADA CERP Statement )
