Credits: 1.5

Time: 8:00 PM ET

In the last several years dentists have been paying more attention to full arch dental implant rehabilitation. Coined as the “All-On-4® ” by Nobel Biocare 18 years ago, the traditional FP3 appliance continues to gain in popularity among specialists as well as general dentists. The concept of using 4-6 implants and a bridge type immediate load appliance has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals.

The GP dentist has traditionally shy’d away from full arch implant cases for many reasons. Lack of understanding, unpredictability, challenging lab steps, high costs, and overall complication of the workflows. These have kept the average GP from feeling comfortable with the process.

For dentists with surgical dental implant experience and the desire to take their implant practice to the next level, there is a practical, predictable, and profitable way to do so. The stackable full arch dental implant guide can provide outstanding results for your patients and increase your confidence as a clinician.

-Have a better understanding of the benefits of a stackable full arch dental implant guide system
-Become familiar with the components and workflow

Clinical Considerations and Troubleshooting Techniques For Anterior and Posterior Crowns

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

Anterior and posterior crowns are predictable restorations when there is adequate prep height for resistance and retention. However, there are times axial wall height may be limited for a variety of different reasons and “out of the box” thinking about prep design may be necessary. How can we improve the resistance and retention of crowns by modifying the tooth? Can we improve our restorative prognosis by selecting the appropriate biomaterial and cement for the case? Do we always need to replace an existing foundation restoration if it’s present? This presentation will dive into these concepts and provide clinical recommendations you can use in your practice to improve outcomes in your natural tooth crown and bridge cases.

Learning Objectives:

-Learn tips and tricks to increase retention and resistance to crowns with limited resistance and remaining tooth structure
-Discover the clinical scenarios where choosing a certain biomaterial or cement choice may improve clinical outcome

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.

– The rationale for emergency dental pain.
– Criteria that can be used to determine the proper treatment direction.

– 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.
