Practicing Intermediate Speed Dentistry
Presenter: Dr. John Flucke
When considering equipment, the focus is all too often on power, not finesse. Electric handpieces can provide both, and the ability to harness intermediate speed can improve your clinical practice in numerous ways. In this CE webinar, join Dr. John Flucke as he walks through clinical scenarios where intermediate speed dentistry benefited him and his patients, including:
• Finishing & shaping anterior aesthetic restorations
• Reduction of softer buildup materials
• Working in close proximity to the pulp
• Preparation of bonded post spaces
Expect More from Your Materials
Presenter: Dr. Jeanette MacLean
Sponsor: GC America
Bioactive restorative materials and prevention products with bioavailable properties are revolutionizing the dental industry. Take your patient care to the next level by incorporating treatments that do more than just ‘fill’ or ‘clean’ teeth. Learn how glass ionomer cement sealants can do more than just provide a physical barrier from plaque on pits and fissures, they are hydrophilic, can be placed on partially erupted molars, and act as a fluoride reservoir that helps to prevent caries and enhance remineralization. Sealants and toothpastes with RECALDENT® technology increase the bioavailable calcium and phosphate in saliva to enhance enamel remineralization and reduce sensitivity without staining enamel. Glass hybrid restoratives help to reduce post-op sensitivity, reduce recurrent caries, improve outcomes, and have enhanced physical properties for long-lasting durability and esthetics. Dental materials are evolving and so should you!
Minimally Invasive Prophylaxis Workflow - Technology and Trends for Every Practice
Presenter: Karen Vichos, RDH
This CE webinar focuses on the latest advancements in dental prophylaxis technology that allows dental clinicians to use more minimally invasive treatments while providing superior education and ergonomics. Additionally, new advancements in intraoral cameras will be discussed including adjuncts to help identify dental caries, plaque, calculus, and inflammation. Come learn about these exciting technologies which promise to enhance diagnostics and clinical outcomes.
Anterior Discolorations: Resin Infiltration and Microabrasion – When, Where, and How
Presenter: Dr. Nathaniel Lawson and Dr. Augusto Robles
Sponsor: DMG America
Surface and sub-surface enamel discolorations may bring a patient into the office for esthetic treatment. Traditional treatment for these lesions could involve composite resins or ceramic veneers. More conservative options are available for removing minimal tooth structure that do not involve bonding restorative materials which need to be replaced over time. Microabrasion is a technique which removes up to 100 microns of the outer layer of enamel. Resin infiltration is a new technique which removes some of the outer layer of enamel and then infiltrates an unfilled resin into the space. This CE webinar will describe both techniques and how to use them in combination.
Flowable Composite Resin in a Variety of Clinical Applications Pediatric Dentistry for the General Dentist
Presenter: Dr. Carla Cohn
Sponsor: VOCO America
Flowable composite resins have long since been used effectively in preventative and restorative pediatric dentistry. But until now their use has been generally limited to sealants and liners. Recent improvements in mechanical properties and availability of different viscosities have changed how we view and use flowable resins. We now have many different flowables with different properties to choose from. Specifically, variations in viscosity lead to different clinical indications. We can now match appropriate viscosity and delivery to appropriate clinical scenario. As a result, flowable resins have a newly increased versatility and usefulness for different restorative situations. This CE webinar will walk through the advantages of different viscosity flowable resins and their indications for use with your pediatric patients. We will study several different clinical cases and choices of material for most effective and efficient use of our materials to best serve our patients.
Featured On-Demand CE Webinars
Restorative success is dependent upon multiple factors, but it all begins with a good preparation design. Additionally, several new materials are available that allow for productive, efficient, and profitable workflows in the dental setting. This CE webinar will focus on techniques and materials that can positively impact your bottom line when incorporated into your clinical practice.
A properly placed post and core in the correct clinical situation is integral to the long-term success of the tooth and subsequently placed indirect restoration. In this CE webinar, we will review post & core systems and placement techniques that will ensure predictable outcomes, giving you yet another tool to help your patients get the 5-star dentistry they deserve.
Tooth wear and microfracture is caused by a number of different factors, such as pathological wear caused by bruxism, the physiological process of aging, trauma caused by social factors, and poor dietary & lifestyle choices. Nano-ORMOCER technology is a brilliant solution for biocompatible, conservative, painless, and efficient treatment for all ages and varieties of patients that may step into your office. In this CE webinar, learn how this "one size fits all" product category is a great pairing with all phases of dentistry and has raised the bar in aesthetic dentistry standards.
