Time: 8:00 PM ET

We live in a TikTok world. Patients often go to social media platforms not to be social but to search. Patients go home, process the treatment plan given to them, often with their significant other, and then try to understand what procedure they need and why they need it. Frequently, the patient will call the office to ask about the procedure expecting someone with clinical knowledge to answer. With the changing landscape in staffing, Dental offices need new strategies and workflows to help increase treatment acceptance by guiding the patient through their procedure and how this procedure will improve their overall health and avoid more costly procedures in the future.

The Abundant THERAPEUTIC Uses for Botox (botulinum neurotoxin) Injections in the Dental Office

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

 The use of botulinum neurotoxin in the dental office to treat facial pain and other oral-facial pathology has taken a back seat to its cosmetic usage.  Yet this neuromodulator has enormous value when used to alleviate TMD symptoms, orthodontic relapse, reduce heavy bite forces associated with failed implant integration and can aid with denture comfort and fit.  This webinar will explore the multiple ways botulinum neurotoxin can prove invaluable when used to treat the symptoms of various oral-facial pathologies.

Learning objectives:

  1. Discover how botulinum neurotoxin can provide relief for patients that have suffered for years with TMD pain.
  2.  Identify landmarks for placement of injections for maximum benefit in all 4 major muscles of mastication.
  3. Learn how botulinum neurotoxin injections have the potential to aid with orthodontic relapse, denture comfort and fit, implant integration and trigeminal neuralgia.

Orthodontics is no longer in its own bubble and how you can take advantage of it!

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

Until the last decade, orthodontics has been perceived as an endeavor wrapped in the inscrutability of cephalometric x-rays and all those measurements! This will NOT be that lecture! Dentistry has undergone a digital transformation from aligners to custom fixed appliances. While there has been a sea change in how we treat patients, what has not changed is why we treat patients. This means diagnosis comes first, followed by the treatment methodology.

The orthodontic profession must change in stride with all the changes that have occurred in dentistry and remain in lockstep with how dentists plan their cases. The interaction of the two is very important for excellent collaborative care, and this presentation will address contemporary smile design coupled with facial characteristics to “fit the smile into the face.” This presentation will be designed to elevate your good results to great results.

Learning Objectives
1. Learn how orthodontic concepts have embraced concepts from cosmetic dentistry
2. Learn how the checklist system leads to thorough diagnosis of functional and esthetic issues
3. Learn principles of Macro-Micro and Miniesthetics and how it applies to your practice.

Laser in Implantology: Why, When & How?

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

The use of lasers in has nowadays proven its interest in various specialties such as ophthalmology and gynecology. Approximately fifteen years ago, lasers were also introduced in dentistry, with several wavelengths. This lecture will illustrate more specifically the indications of Diode and Erbium YAG lasers in implantology.

Diode laser is a technology that uses a penetrating wavelength (660 to 980nm), useful for its photodynamic and photochemical effects. Its effectiveness relies on both the inflammatory host’s response and the bacterial etiology in case of infection. Erbium-Yag laser, with an absorbed wavelength of 2940 nm, allows, by its ablative effect, an easy cutting of hard tissues (bone, cement) and soft tissue (gums), as well as a complete decontamination of infected sites in case of periimplantitis for example.

This lecture proposes an update on the indications and interest of lasers in oral implantology.

Learning Objectives:

This course is aimed at general dentist surgeons or specialists in implantology or periodontology. Its objectives are to introduce them to:

  1. A comprehensive clinical approach to implant assisted laser dentistry
  2. The use of different wavelengths in the treatment of periimplantitis.
  3. The indication of each laser effect best suited to the clinical situation.
