How to Implement for Maximum Profitability and Deliver Minimally Invasive Care

Course Description:

3D Imaging may soon be the standard of care, yet for now it is a high-tech, expensive and complex technology that must be implemented correctly to get an excellent ROI.  This webinar is about how you can use 3D Imaging to grow your practice, improve the quality of care you provide, and to make you more efficient and profitable.  Is 3D Imaging right for your practice?  Do you have 3D Imaging and wonder if it is being under-utilized?

If you can answer yes to the following questions, this webinar will be of interest to you:

Have you had a patient with non-descript tooth pain that you couldn’t locate?   Have you ever had difficulty diagnosing an abscessed molar and knowing exactly where the lesion is?  Have you ever thought that you would do more implants if you were totally confident in what’s under the surface?  Have you ever wondered what your patient’s joints really look like before undertaking complex restorative?  Have you ever wondered if there is a quick and simple way to assess an airway in a way that is easy for the patient to see?  Have you ever thought that ceph tracing for orthodontics was a pain and a waste of time?

Have you had fear that you couldn’t implement 3D, especially if your team doesn’t know how to use it?  Have you been worried that a 3D Imaging system could become an uber-expensive dust collector?  Have you been concerned that you wouldn’t get paid for the imaging that you do?

Series Summary: You have the basics down and now you want to take your endodontic skills to the next level: after all, endodontics is not just about cleaning, shaping, and obturation. This series will be divided into four courses encompassing diagnostic and prognostic challenges, the management of dental trauma, an introduction to surgical endodontics, and various obturation advancements. The courses will be given by an internationally renowned endodontist with over 30 years of clinical and academic experience. This series of courses is designed for the dentist desiring a more holistic understanding of important endodontic topics.

About this session – It’s a fact: perfect endodontic treatment can sometimes be unsuccessful. Unfortunately, the lack of healing can often be attributed to an inadequate preliminary diagnosis or an improper prognosis assessment. Dr. Berman will systematically review the many variables that should be taken into consideration before the bur ever hits the tooth, including endodontic case assessment, periodontal concerns, tooth restorability, and the detection and prediction of the presence of root fractures. After this presentation, you will never look at pending endodontic treatment the same way again.

Session Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Describe the variables that exist prior to endodontic treatment which may contribute to non-healing.
• Understand the variables that may be present, which may decrease the prognosis for a tooth requiring endodontic treatment.
• Discuss the reasons for the lack of endodontic healing based on an improper prognosis assessment.
• Describe the subjective and objective findings of root fractures as they may relate to the tooth and associated periodontal structures.

Obturation of the root canal system represents the final phase of root canal treatment. The rationale for choosing an obturation method can be influenced by the anatomy of the canal and driven by the “plasticizable” properties of gutta-percha. Understanding how to confidently adapt gutta-percha to the apical third of the root canal system can significantly improve the clinician’s obturation results.

The purpose of obturation is to prevent the reinfection of a root canal system that has been properly shaped, cleaned and disinfected. Successful obturation requires the use of materials and techniques capable of densely filling the entire root canal space from the apical terminus to the canal orifice. Having a solid understanding of multiple obturation techniques allows the clinician to predictably treat a wider variety of cases.

Upon completion of this course, the practitioner should have a better understanding of the following:

– The ideal properties of an obturation material.

– How to properly gauge the final apical preparation.

– The purpose of size verification.

– Warm vertical obturation using Continuous Wave of Condensation.

– Chemoplasticized obturation.

– Carrier-based obturation.

– How to clean the chamber following obturation.

This webinar is designed to help every clinician understand several methods of root canal obturation all while improving the seal in the apical third. Having multiple obturation
available lends to more clinical versatility and a more predictable endodontic results.

Proper irrigation during root canal treatment can make the difference between long-term success and short-term failure. Understanding what, how and why specific solution are used could have a significant impact on the treatment outcome. This webinar is designed to help establish a safe and simple way to achieve proper root canal disinfection during endodontic treatment.

Eliminating the organic component within the root canal system is the cornerstone for favorable endodontic outcomes. With the knowledge that our current instrumentation techniques leave at least 35% of the root canal system untouched, clinicians must rely on other means to address the remaining etiology. The purpose of this presentation is to identify various irrigation solutions and techniques used to increase the odds of a successful endodontic outcome.

Upon completion of this course each participant should have a better understanding of the following:

– The effects of varying concentrations of sodium hypochlorite.

– How depth of irrigation penetration can effect canal disinfection.

– Safe ways to irrigate with sodium hypochlorite.

– The importance of removing the smear layer.

– The advantage of using combination irrigation products.

– How to sequence irrigation solutions for maximum disinfection efficiency.

– The advantages of agitation and activation of irrigation solutions.

Establishing a predictable irrigation protocol is an important part of every root canal procedure. Having a thorough understanding of root canal disinfection techniques can elevate every clinician’s chances for a favorable long-term endodontic outcome.

The ability to create and maintain a reproducible glide path is the foundation of control for endodontic treatment. Establishing uniform parameters for every root canal system greatly enhances the level of predictability during the root canal shaping process.

Root canal treatment can be a very rewarding part of any dental practice when the treatment process goes as planned. But when control over the treatment is lost, this procedure can be fraught with challenges and frustration for both the practitioner as well as the patient. Understanding how to establish and maintain a reproducible glide path is the foundation for predictable and efficient endodontic treatment.

Upon completion of this course, the participant should have a better understanding of the following:

– The advantage of orifice modification.

– Proper canal negotiation.

– How to negotiate challenging canals using file bending techniques.

– The passive step-back technique.

– The importance of apical patency.

– Minimum glide path requirements.

– The difference between reamers and files.

– Engine driven glide path options.

This webinar is designed to help the practitioner understand critical core concepts and principles used to establish a reproducible glide path. These techniques can be used with any instrumentation system and do not require any modifications to your current endodontic hardware. These concepts and principles are designed to enhance the predictability of the root canal shaping process.
