Proper diagnosis and treatment planning are prerequisites for predictable and efficient endodontic treatment. Information available on cone beam imaging can significantly impact this decision making process. Learn what it takes to fully understand how to read and interpret a CBCT scan to provide your patients with most accurate, conservative and precise endodontic treatment available.

Radiographic evaluation and interpretation is imperative for accurate endodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. Assessments are made with respect to the location, shape and size of the pulp chamber, length of the root(s), visibility of the canal(s) and degree of canal curvature. When compared to traditional periapical radiographs, information available on a CBCT scan can lead to diagnosis and treatment plan modifications 62% of the time. The ability to see in all three planes allows the clinician to visually dissect the tooth and its periapical attachment in order to make better diagnostic and treatment decisions.

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

– Cone beam imaging and its application in endodontic diagnosis.

– How to properly read a CBCT scan for endodontic decision making purposes.

– How to recognize different types of cone beam artifact.

– Five specific findings on a CBCT scan that are suggestive of root fracture.

– The impact of cone beam imaging on current outcome classifications.

– How to use the CBCT scan for percision endodontic treatment.

This webinar is designed to help the clinician gain a better understanding of cone beam imaging and its uses for endodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. Understanding how to use this advanced imaging can help you and your patients make better treatment decisions for more predictable endodontic results.

Understanding Modern Dental Ceramics and the Future Practice

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

Course Description:

Ceramics are the most consistently predictable esthetic dental material.  Today dentists can offer more treatment options for patient’s complex problems.  Metal-ceramics continue to be the “state of the art” and profoundly affect prosthodontic care but the single phase or monolithic all-ceramic materials have become increasingly more popular and for good reason.

Course Objectives:

–      Understand what clinical factors impact long term survival of dental ceramic materials.

–      Understand the controversies that exist with modern dental materials.

–      Learn why monolithic all-ceramic materials will dominate the market and how future developments will bring improved long-term success.

Dental implants have become an integral part of dental practice today. Maintaining predictability and high success rates impose great challenges to the dental team. Edentulous ridge defects constitute a major problem. In the past long teeth have been placed into defects to take up vertical space. Gingival and tooth symmetry and the esthetic results were often compromised.

Today these conditions as well as the lack of bone can be augmented surgically with soft and hard tissue grafting. This may not always produce a long-term predictable result. Prosthetic techniques will be discussed utilizing ceramic gingival material and design for fixed prosthodontics.

Learning Objectives for this Series:

1. To understand what factors and concerns a prosthodontist would have treating patients that require “esthetic procedures”.

2. To understand the controversies that exists with modern dental materials.

3. To understand what clinical factors impact on long term survival of dental ceramic materials.

4. To understand the restoration of dental implants in complex conditions.

Course Description: 

Understanding methods to manage simple and complex restorative issues are critical to improving patient acceptance and even long term ceramic success.  Methods to integrate the efforts of laboratory technologists and managing occlusion and patient’s desires can have a profound impact in the practice of dentistry.

Course Objectives:

–      Discover the importance of input from your laboratory technician in all phases of treatment.

–      Avoid remakes, lost time, and ultimately lost income by learning how to clearly convey the finer details of prosthesis construction.

–      Learn how to improve levels of communication by increasing your awareness of the laboratory environment, materials, and techniques used to create a final prosthesis.

Course Description:

Oral conscious sedation has changed the face of dentistry. Intravenous access gives the sedation team the ability to better control onset, depth and duration of action. It also allows for analgesia and sedation, and does a better job of preventing hypoglycemia and hypovolemia. When combined with oral sedatives, this method allows the sedation team to enjoy the benefits of both, while minimizing the disadvantages of either. Discover why now might be the right time to take the plunge into IV conscious sedation.

Session Objectives:

– Learn the advantages and disadvantages of intravenous conscious sedation compared to other forms of conscious sedation.
– Gain the skills to determine who benefits most from the intravenous sedation route.
– Understand how to plan and train yourself and your team in order to safely and confidently provide IV conscious sedation.
