The course intends to set the scientific foundation for the implementation of the “Fluorescence Enhanced Theragnosis™” concept in clinical dentistry.
Fluorescence based diagnosis provides the needed treatment guidance shift in clinical practice towards certainty. The decision-making process, treatment choice selection is becoming evidence base and documentable using direct visualization approaches.
Direct visual treatment enhancement guarantees evidence, guidance and control of the procedure and it`s accomplishment. Invasiveness for prevention is not needed any further due to the immediate guided visual guided execution. Treatment success rates can evidently be raised to unexpected levels considering the changed diagnosis and execution criteria.
Dentists immediate benefits out of the implementation of the “Fluorescence Enhanced Theragnosis™” concept in clinical dentistry is a facilitator towards performance of visual guided evidence based clinical dentistry will be coronated by higher patients satisfaction due to reduced invasiveness and higher treatment outcome.
