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.
In this CE webinar, follow Dr. Flax as he takes you on journey with a very challenging patient to make him look good and feel great, while giving the patient hope for future dental solutions.
Upon completion of this CE webinar participants will:
• Learn how to visualize patient anatomy with CBCT scan imaging modalities;
• Understand certain parameters needed to recognize potential implant receptor sites
• Learn how to plan for screw-retained or cementable restorations
• Understand how to plan for bone grafting or bone reduction to enhance treatment outcomes
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.
This CE webinar will cover clinical case selection, treatment and prognosis, through the understanding of proper diagnosis, materials and biological considerations, when performing vital pulp cryotherapy treatment.
During this CE webinar, the participant will cover the following:
• Review the research in Disease Prevention; Biofilm, pH, and American College of Prosthodontists Guidelines.
• Understanding the proper use of tools, technology, and products on natural teeth / implant restoration patients.
• Clinically change your prophylaxis protocol and home-care recommendations to new biofilm focused care.
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. In this CE webinar, we will review post & core systems and placement techniques that will ensure predictable outcomes, giving you yet another tool to help your patients get the 5-star dentistry they deserve.
How many new patients are lost every month because your business employees are handling new patient calls as routine inquiries rather than potential sales opportunities? If ever there were a perfect occasion to sell the practice and the services offered, it’s when the prospective new patient calls your office. They are interested, ready, and willing to learn more. Learn how to prevent practice growth from tripping over your frontline.
When a clinician struggles with the laboratory or the fit of a final restoration, the answer can often be found at the prep appointment. The integrity of our final restoration is often related to the quality of the impression that we make at the preparation appointment. This CE webinar will provide you with some clinical tips that will help you insure that you have quality that is consistent and predictable.
Cementation of fixed restorative restorations requires new bonding techniques to be effective. When dealing with a crown or bridge, many techniques must be mastered to gain ideal strength and longevity. This includes bonding to various substrates in tooth and lab fabricated restorations of varying types and materials. This CE webinar describes and illustrates the steps needed to bond fixed restorative units.
This CE webinar will discuss both nerve and bone anatomy and how they can change the efficacy and ease of delivery of a local anesthetic. A review of the maxillary nerve, the mandibular nerve, the mandible and the maxilla will be discussed. Certain injection techniques and local anesthetic products will be reviewed in light of this nerve and bone anatomy.
During this CE webinar, we will discuss different impression techniques, review different impression material combinations, talk about closed tray versus open tray impressions for implants and review techniques for clear aligner therapy and OSA appliances.
Dentistry has fully embraced the digital age and its integration into one of the oldest treatments in dentistry is proof that it is here to stay. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) of complete dentures was introduced following the success of CAD/CAM in implant and fixed prosthodontics. CAD/CAM complete dentures have seen exponential growth in the dental market with the number of commercially available CAD/CAM denture systems growing every year. Interest in CAD/CAM has also been affected by a reduction in the number of dental laboratory technicians with extensive experience and expertise with traditional fabrication processes. This CE webinar will cover key aspects related to the current status of computer technology for the fabrication of complete dentures and removable partial dentures.
In the second CE webinar of this two-part series on infection control presented by Dr. Karson Carpenter, participants will learn about:
• Infection Risks and Actions to Stay Healthy
• Cleaning, disinfection and sterilization; what do they mean and why do we practice them?
• Sterilizing dental instruments
• Environmental surface disinfection: products and surface compatibility
• Cleaning and disinfection best practices
