It has been suggested to either not have your zirconia crowns glazed by your lab or to sandblast the occlusal surface to be able to evaluate the occlusion better at the seating appointment. Once the occlusion has been established, getting a glaze like finish on your zirconia restoration can be challenging. Using the 2 step zirconia polishers will ensure you achieve the glossy finish she seek. Our composite restorations deserve the same respect. Again, using the 2 step composite polishers with the 48L finishing bur will give you exquisite results, without the use of messy polishing pastes.
As we all know, the fluoride ion is a key component and is beneficial to the tooth's health. However, why settle for just one therapeutic ion when bioactive Giomer Technology provides five additional ions that can restore the tooth structure destroyed by decay as well as prevent decay from occurring. In this CE webinar, Dr. Glazer will discuss the concept of bioactive Giomer Technology and why it is important in both the preventive and restorative aspects of dentistry for patients of all ages. He will review the products that feature the propriety Giomer Technology and where these products may be indicated.
Gone are the days of free-handed bonding; same day veneers are the future. With the increase in social media, patients are looking for ways to improve their smile. Pressed composite veneers provide an affordable, simplified way to satisfy your patients and grow your practice with no lab bill. With a prefabricated nano hybrid composite shell, composite veneers have never been easier. Pre-shaped and pre-polished, pressed composite veneers are stain-resistant, providing the esthetics of a traditional veneer at half the cost. During this CE webinar attendees will learn how to treatment plan, case select, and restore using composite veneers.
Despite advances in sectional matrix and ring technology, Class II restorations continue to be a hurdle in everyday dentistry. A closer look shows how a forgotten component unlocks the secret for everyday success: the wedge. In this CE webinar, discover how a simple device will forever change your approach to direct restorations, enhance results, and drive profitability and efficiency.
In today’s world of rapid technological advancements, digital dentures are revolutionizing dentistry in many ways. This CE webinar will give an overview of the digital denture workflow, and how anyone can seamlessly transition into that workflow for both complete dentures and full-arch implant cases. We will also discuss how digital technology and digital dentures have modernized communications between the clinician, patient, and laboratory.
This CE webinar is designed to give a foundation for implementing bioactive materials in your daily treatment to enhance and grow your dental practice.
The concept of bioactive dental materials is not new. We’ve all heard of them and have probably used bioactive materials at one time or another – but are you telling your patients about the benefits of bioactive materials? Patient education can increase case acceptance and be a large source or referrals to increase practice revenue.
Dental professionals have increased risk of exposure to dental aerosols and droplets. These are caused by the rebound of spray mist on the tooth surface generated by dental instruments (e.g. turbine and powder water jet devices).
In this CE webinar, Dr. Martin Koch will give an insight into the latest research and present initial results of a study that is being conducted.
From prep to seat, indirect restorations continue to anchor dental practices in time, production, and energy. This CE webinar is packed with practical ideas to develop a systematic approach for every indirect procedure. Specific discussion will revolve around how to optimize bur selection, create predictable tissue management, identify digital scanning elements, and prepare the restoration for secure placement. Clinicians will benefit from these techniques to produce fewer adjustments and remakes, answer to any cementation conundrums, and deliver a highly-polished, accurate final restoration while improving the patient experience.
New materials and technologies enable us now to consider treatments that were previously considered impossible. This CE webinar will cover how bioceramic materials have changed our definition of irreversible pulpitis and their application in vital pulp therapy of immature and mature teeth.
Infection prevention is more important than ever before, for patient safety and for patients to maintain confidence in their dental practice. Although instruments may have been processed in the sterilizer, maintaining the sterility of dental instruments after the packages are removed from the sterilizer is a critical step in patient safety protocols. This process begins with the selection of packaging materials that are optimal for the instrument management system, utilization of process indicators and integrators, placement in the sterilizer, appropriate drying, and storage of instrument packages. This CE webinar will be based on the CDC Guidelines for Dental Health Care Settings, as well as the CDC Guidelines for Sterilization and Disinfection in Health Care Settings.
Overview of case planning for aligners including 3D analysis, case design, sequencing, and staging. Understand how orthodontic fundamentals influence safe and predictable tooth movement. In this CE webinar, learn how desired movements are sequenced and programed into each aligner stage.
Clear aligner therapy has become an increasingly common addition to the orthodontist and the general practitioner. Both adults and children seek orthodontic treatment without traditional wire braces, providing the patient with a more aesthetic and comfortable solution to straightening teeth. Attachments, bonded composite, are used for most of the clear aligner systems. These enhance the aligner retention and allow more complex movements to be performed. Dr. Ataii will explain the benefits of using a composite with bioactive Giomer Technology for clear aligner therapy. He will also discuss the best practices on how to place and remove the attachments/engagers and which products to use for optimal results.
During this CE webinar, we will:
• Review the initial exam and learn ways to improve your diagnostic capabilities.
• Discuss what we should be looking for to improve our patient’s overall oral health.
• Learn how photography and technology can improve diagnosis and case acceptance.
In this CE webinar, Dr. Nasseh will discuss and demonstrate the difference between conventional rotation motion, reciprocation motion, and the recently developed Optimized Torque Reduction motion for root canal instrumentation by describing a conservative reciprocation approach that allows safe and efficient root canal instrumentation without excessive removal of coronal dentin. In addition, the efficient obturation of the prepared shape using BioCeramics technology will be discussed and demonstrated.
As a result of the latest high strength injectable composite technology, dentists can now quickly, easily, and predictably treat Class V (abfraction), Class l, Class ll and Class Vl lesions with beauty, strength and function beyond patient expectations. Improvements in composite polymerization shrinkage, reduction of internal stress and occlusal wear, have made injectable composite material a great aesthetic option. This CE webinar will demonstrate how to use high strength injectable composite quickly and easily, so that an aesthetic result with a high success rate and predictable outcome can be achieved.
The first step in effective instrument reprocessing for dentistry is the cleaning process. If all debris is not removed from the instruments prior to sterilization, instruments and other items will not be sterile and safe for patient treatment. This CE webinar will look at all aspects of instrument cleaning, from instrument cleaning techniques and devices, to selecting the appropriate equipment and solutions and monitoring equipment for efficacy. CDC guidelines for instrument cleaning will be reviewed, and manufacturer’s instructions for use will be discussed.
The opportunities for 3D printing, scanning and integration into dental office systems is expanding at an alarming rate.
