Emergency Endodontics

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

Dental pain is one of the main reasons patients will seek out dental treatment. An unscheduled dental emergency can greatly disrupt the normal office flow and create stress within the dental practice. Understanding how to manage these types of patients by developing a systematic and methodical approach can have a positive impact on the local community and your dental practice.

The overall philosophy of dentistry promotes the preservation of the natural dentition. Often, patients will present with with emergency dental pain which can drastically impact their immediate decision to retain or extract a tooth. The goal for managing emergency endodontic treatment is to gain control over the acute symptoms so that proper treatment planning and decision making can be accomplished at a later date without pain as an influencing factor.

Upon completion of this course, the practitioner should have a better understanding of the following:
– The rationale for emergency dental pain.
– Criteria that can be used to determine the proper treatment direction.
– Endodontic diagnosis.
– Proper isolation techniques.
– Local anesthetic strategies
– Basic emergency endodontic technique

Having a working knowledge of how to manage emergency dental pain while establishing proper team and treatment protocols will have a positive impact of the growth of your practice. This presentation is designed to give the dental team working knowledge on how to predictably manage the acute pain patient, while promoting tooth retention when possible.

The Root Resorption Epidemic

Credits: 1.5

Root resorption can be a real enigma when diagnosing and treatment planning. Depending on the location and
severity of the resorption, it can dramatically affect the prognosis of the case. There are several different types
of root resorption, but probably the most complicated resorption to manage is the invasive cervical root
resorption. These cases need to be properly assessed. The lines of communication between the different dental
specialties need to be maintained, since the management often necessitates an inter-disciplinary approach. This
course is designed to take the mystery out of diagnosing and treatment planning teeth with root resorption.

12.16.20 8:00 PM ET Implant Dentistry Akil Alexander, DDS Contemporary & Classical Workflows for Implant Supported Full Arch All-on-X (Part 2)

Contemporary & Classical Workflows for Implant Supported Full Arch All-on-X (Part 2)

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

With the advances with predictability of CAD/CAM planning and success of immediate loading of full arch prosthetics, the quality of life for the patients with terminal-dentition or edentulous patient is better served with an immediately loaded fixed, cross-arch stabilized prosthesis versus a 2-stage procedure with a delayed loading protocol. This can lead to decreased treatment times and comorbidities. We will review indications & workflows comparing and contrasting classical vs contemporary surgical and restorative workflows to provisionalize and restore the full arch All-On-X patient .

Objectives:
• You will understand the various treatment planning considerations and contraindications to qualify a patient for full arch treatment.
• Understand various prosthodontic requirements and its influence on surgical considerations
• Visualize various conversion techniques with chrome guided protocol vs conventional in office workflow vs hybrid new technologies
• Appreciate the advantages of a fully guided workflow and potential benefits on practice efficiency, revenue health, and case acceptance.
• Appreciate the biomechanical considerations influencing surgical and prosthetic success; including but not limited to implant macro/micro geometry, alveolar bone characteristics and anchorage techniques and designing the case with optimal placement and design .
• Gain an appreciation for comparison of contemporary vs classical approaches to restoring full arch restorations
