Creating a positive patient experience often begins by identifying and addressing any underlying fears or anxiety regarding dental treatment. New techniques of inhalational sedation are leading more and more dental clinicians to choose nitrous oxide-oxygen to alleviate tension in their fearful patients. With a long track record of safety, low cost and ease of use it has become the quasi standard for today’s clinicians.
This CE webinar is part of a triad of webinars that will give a historical perspective, show how to rapidly identify anxiety and phobias related to treatment, explain the clinical science of N2O/O2 application and address occupational safety issues and practice management.

The right fit is important whether it’s our clothes, shoes, work and oral health. In 2017, a new CDT code created the right fit to finally treat gingivitis after decades of merely dumping gingival inflammation into the same category as health. It’s time to shift dentistry focus from finding the cavity to treating the caries pH infection disease. Watching and waiting for breakdown makes no sense. Saliva is one of the body’s most effective means for protecting the tooth enamel to be a pH buffer against acid. This CE webinar focuses on early treatment using up-to-date right fit technologies and systems and the latest in remineralization therapies.

Help your patients FIGHT Periodontal disease while learning to Detect, Diagnose, and Treat more effectively after watching this CE webinar.
The ability to create and modify provisional restorations simply and quickly has opened the door to predictable aesthetic dentistry. Unlike plastic surgery, dental temporization allows the patient to preview his or her new smile and then alter it as necessary for functional, esthetic and phonetic reasons. A well-made temporary restoration, the key to an aesthetic restoration, provides the lab with a blueprint for tooth length, width, thickness, arch form and position, midline cant, and occlusion. Once the patient has approved the temporary, the lab replicates it in porcelain using silicone templates. In this CE webinar, material selection and usage, as well as the working/re-working process (all crucial to the success of temporaries) will be thoroughly discussed.
For health, environmental and esthetic reasons most dentists have reduced or completely eliminated the use of amalgam and moved towards composites for direct posterior restorations. In this CE webinar, you’ll learn about the goals of the Minamata Convention, the practical implications of the EPA regulations governing amalgam disposal, and how to avoid the “7 Deadly Sins of Posterior Composites”. These practical tips are designed to help you with prep design, matrix placement, material adaptation and finishing/polishing to help you create durable, long lasting and esthetic posterior composites.
Your pediatric patients require special attention. You must treat your child patient, all the while managing behavior. Your work must be both effective and efficient, procedures and protocols tried and true, and above all your equipment and materials must be reliable.
