Course Description:

While the typical bleaching tray fabrication is well described, sometimes there are situations for which either different tray fabrication options or different impression techniques may serve the patient and the practice better. In this pandemic when typical alginate impressions may not be desirable on some patients, thermoplastic trays may be indicated for children, orthodontic patients, high caries patients, while splints may need a different approach as well.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand Bleaching vs. Whitening
  2. Review General bleaching principles
  3. Carbamide and hydrogen peroxide differences
  4. Discuss different types of novel bleaching tray fabrication technique other than conventional, including thermoplastic trays and impression techniques
  5. Discuss different methods for splint fabrication made directly in the mouth or on any articulator
