• Learn the many applications for the use of air abrasion
Upon completion of this CE webinar, the attendee will
• understand that caries is a surface biofilm disease unable to be effectively managed with surgical dentistry alone
• understand the caries process is a dynamic process that begins and ends on the surface of the tooth, wherever that surface might be
• be able to identify that glass ionomers are suitable restorative materials for cavities in pediatric patients
• be able to manage this disease better with a vision of using different restoration materials for different circumstances and that restorations should be a part of preventive dentistry
Over 58 million Americans have at least one form of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) or cardiovascular disease (CVD). 50% of all cardiac deaths result from CHD. This CE webinar will review risk factors, such as atherosclerosis, and discuss the role of cholesterol in the process in women and men.
Since reliable and precise tooth movements are essential for ideal orthodontic treatment results, can clinicians offer the same or even better patient outcomes with Invisalign® as they do with standard wire and bracket systems? During this CE webinar, Dr. Ibrahim will explore this question and walk you through her journey of integrating Accelerated Invisalign as her preferred treatment modality for all patients. Through a series of case reviews, she will show how integrating AcceleDent® with Invisalign patients’ treatment helps ensure that the programmed movements in the aligners will be expressed more predictably during the treatment period. She will discuss how Align Technology’s innovations with the software, materials and features built into the aligners also help ensure that she’s able to provide the same, and more often, better control of tooth movement, more efficient patient care and enhanced results than with standard fixed appliances.
As dental professionals need to address the implant maintenance challenge with researched-based protocols to be able to assess, identify, and know when to refer for peri-implantitis. Many of us are confused by conflicting messages. In this CE webinar, end the confusion with a comprehensive system for assessment, instrumentation, monitoring, and peri-implant disease treatment including cement residue implantitis.
This CE webinar discusses the new “scaling” dental code. This code reports scaling where an evaluation can be performed; there is no bone loss, but there is moderate or severe gingival inflammation present. This procedure would typically be followed a few weeks later by a prophylaxis as determined by the dentist.
How do you treat patients who present with Xerostomia? This CE webinar we will review the prevalence of patients experiencing complications and discomfort from reduced, natural salivary flow. We will also discuss a novel approach to soothing/moisturizing dry mouth tissues, treating sensitivity, and helping to prevent caries and gingivitis.
This CE webinar will review, in a real world “wet fingered” dentist’s way, some of the techniques, technologies and key research on how to perform advanced adhesion dentistry simply in your office on a daily basis. These techniques can eliminate post-operative pain & increase the longevity of adhesive restorations dramatically while preserving the maximum amount of tooth structure. These techniques will be illustrated with step-by-step images and videos of multiple clinical cases.
This exciting CE webinar encompasses a thorough investigation on diagnosis, assessment, and treatment planning cases for narrow diameter implants. Topics include: looking for ideal cases, moderate, and advanced cases. Also covered in this webinar is a comprehensive review of narrow diameter implants, background, theory, and understanding of their success rates.
The digital revolution is here and influencing many aspects of our daily dental practices. This concise CE webinar is packed with clinical examples and ideas to help you develop a systematic approach for every indirect procedure from start to finish - digital preparation design and impression tips to temporization and delivery of a highly-polished, accurate final restoration. Discussion will specifically revolve around how to incorporate digital scanning into your workflow without the milling process.
Sharp explorers and radiographs have been the primary means of caries detection for many years. Both tactile inspection and radiographs have limitations. The caries has to become deep enough or large enough to be “seen” by the tip of the explorer or radiographically. In this CE webinar, learn how advanced diagnostic tools are being used to detect earlier. Florescence technology provides a means for diagnosing early demineralize to deep decay through a color scale. Appropriate restorative options can then be utilized. Using this technology will aid in our goal of minimally invasive dentistry.
3D imaging has changed the practice of endodontics. In recent years the King's College London team has completed a number of clinical trials highlighting the importance of Cone Beam Computed Tomography in diagnosis, and outcome assessment in endodontics. This webinar is a journey across the Endodontic 3D revolution.
In this CE webinar, Dr. Kraver will present several cases on how to use fiber reinforced composites to achieve beautiful short and long term provisionalization cases in the anterior. The student will learn how to use this technique for implant cases, missing lateral incisors, for staging larger cases, and in the lower anteriors as an alternative to a removable appliance
Have you ever been concerned with the decision to proceed with endodontic treatment or to be in a “holding pattern“? Endodontics requires a high level of technical skills and biological understanding. In this CE webinar, Dr. Olmsted will share his 15 steps for endodontic diagnosis, allowing the clinician and staff to consider appropriate case selection and treatment planning.
Dentists are inundated with new and improved products from manufacturers on a regular basis. The question is, “how do I decide what products to incorporate into my daily practice? Will they make my life less stressful and more productive?” In this CE webinar, Dr. Gillespie will review several products from the latest in bonding systems to all types of bulk fill materials.
In this CE webinar, you will develop a better understanding of when to use Glass Ionomer products as a Bio-Active dentin substitute. Glass Ionomers have a therapeutic benefit as well as ionic exchange adhesion Minimally Invasive Restorations originate from the “inside out”.
This CE webinar will focus on the use of barriers for Guided Bone Regeneration. It is well known that membranes are needed to isolate soft tissue from invading hard tissue grafts. At times, the combined use of bone graft materials in combination with membranes maybe cumbersome and time consuming. New bone graft materials available on the market minimize these drawbacks, by incorporating the membrane material within the volume of the graft. Techniques and indications for modified socket grafting procedures to easier coverage for sinus lift will be presented, so that the clinicians has additional arrays of materials to make a more in depth referral vs non referral call.
This CE webinar will present the oral manifestations that may be encountered in pregnancy. Many myths regarding dental treatment for the pregnant patient will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on the consensus statement produced by an expert workgroup meeting convened by the Health Resources and Services Administration in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Dental Association coordinated by the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center.
Direct posterior composite restorations are among the most frequently performed restorative procedures, yet dentists often struggle with placement, polishing and consistently generating single shade esthetic results with little to no post-operative sensitivity. This CE webinar will discuss how each element will play a critical role in the professional’s decision making process when determining which materials, systems and techniques are best to utilize when doing direct composite restorations. We will review esthetic principles, modern preparation design and universal bonding. Additional topics will include innovative product suggestions.
The language we use can have a huge impact on how the patient perceives the practice, the doctor and the service provided. Impressions are formed within seconds from the patient’s first call, to the dental assistant seating the patient, to the hygienist explaining what’s going to happen to the dentist establishing trust.
Learn how to make your first impression be the best it can be and preserving that WOW impression every time.
Truth be told, bonding is not perfect in every situation and all too often Glass Ionomers offer dentists patients wonderful options for their direct restorative care. This CE webinar will demonstrate how GICs compliment our restorative care for our patients.
