It’s more than screening for oral abnormalities and providing dental care to patients diagnosed with oral cancer. Cancer of any type affects most of us, if not personally, then a friend, family member, or patient that visits your office. This CE webinar covers oral concerns of oncology patients and their caregivers, products to aid in treatment of those oral concerns, and how the cancer diagnosis affects treatment considerations in your chair.
In this CE webinar, we will cover the following:
• How to achieve an accurate bite registration
• Accuracy in implant impressions
• Registration of a CR bite
• Creative immediate implant stabilization and temporization
The purpose of this CE webinar is to provide evidence for the routine use of surgical guides for implant placement and to illustrate the advantages of having those cases be fully restoratively driven. We will discuss a comprehensive strategy to implement this into practice using currently available tools, with an emphasis on speed and efficiency, leading to the possibility of same-appointment planning and surgery. Review of the process will be done step-by-step. By implementing these techniques, the advantages are experienced by the clinician and patient, resulting in predictable, high-quality implant clinical and restorative outcomes.
Dental caries continues to be a top-of-mind dental concern, affecting a majority of the US population. Fluoride is a mainstay in prevention, with fluoride varnish products becoming the primary type provided in dental practices. Dental professionals often get “side-tracked” with concerns over patient acceptance of a product utilized in patient care, rather than its efficacy, and often is the case when selecting a fluoride varnish. This CE webinar offers an overview of factors to consider when selecting a fluoride varnish product. Flavor aspects will be presented with a conversation about taste as the current primary determinant for product choice. The benefits of additional ingredients in fluoride varnish will be discussed as well as other characteristics for superior patient benefit. The entire dental team can profit from information concerning fluoride varnish choices for best patient care.
Radiographs and explorers have been used for many years to aid in the diagnostics of caries; however, we know that new methodologies do exist that can help us to achieve an enhanced level of diagnostics in respect to certain types of decay. This CE webinar will take a detailed look at the world of near-infrared transillumination and how a simple handheld technology can be utilized on pediatric through adult patients to diagnose the presence and specific location of caries and fractures—even in their earliest stages.
The learning objectives for this CE webinar are:
• Understanding the present condition of patients oral health in providing comprehensive dental care
• Utilizing malocclusion concepts of risks helping patients choose between treatment alternatives
• Identifying the value of direct restorations and integrating a digital workflow in the process of case acceptance
This CE webinar will describe situations where the use of a chlorhexidine varnish can be used to idealize tissue health, reduce caries risk and minimize sensitivity. In addition, proper maintenance of restorations is essential for their long-term health, stability and aesthetics. Unfortunately, some materials used for maintenance can damage or reduce the lifespan of restorations. This CE webinar will describe tips and recommendations for maintenance of your direct, indirect, CAD/CAM and implant supported restorations.
Glass ionomers have a proven track record of clinical success, yet some clinicians are hesitant to fully embrace them in practice. The chemistry and applications continue to improve, and a handful of dentists keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible using this gold-standard bioactive material. Whether you’re new to the fascinating world of glass ionomers or think you have heard it all before, this CE webinar will summarize the science and clinical applications of a dental material that belongs in every office.
Upon completion of this webinar, the dental professional will be able to:
• Review & evaluate their current instrument set-up used for examination and periodontal debridement.
• Identify the best instruments to effectively root plane, detoxify and polish both natural teeth and implant sites.
• Recognize the implication of screening probes in the process of care.
• Plan the proper application and timing in using both power-driven and hand instruments.
• Revisit the concept of “selective” vs “conventional” coronal polishing and what the evidence tells us today
• Improve their ergonomic comfort with innovations in cordless handpieces.
A properly placed post and core in the correct clinical situation is integral to the long-term success of the tooth and subsequently placed indirect restoration.
