This fast-paced, informative session will introduce the participants to several new materials in the arena of indirect restorative dentistry. Tips and techniques for these materials will be discussed. Pros and cons of each material will be discussed. This course will cover the latest development in all porcelains, cements, impression materials and CAD/CAM technology and elucidate their influences on the modern practice of dentistry.LEARNING OBJECTIVES
- Develop a better understanding of the indications and contraindications of each material
- Improve their understanding of the plethora of modern cements and which clinical situations are indicated for their use
- Navigate the technological advances in CAD/CAM Dentistry
THERE WILL BE NO HANDOUT.
The use of composite resin material as a direct restorative for anterior and posterior restorations has dramatically increased in the market place. With self-etching technology emerging as a viable alternative to traditional techniques and the development of new technology to assist clinicians with bulk-filled techniques, it is easy to get confused and fall behind. What materials will you advocate for use in your practice? Should practitioners change their current techniques? This course will attempt to make sense of all of the products and techniques available in today's market place and will focus on materials and their applications as well as a brief review of some of the literature. Emphasis will be placed on new developments in the composite area as well as outline what developments to watch for in the coming years.LEARNING OBJECTIVES
- Self-etching principles and how they are applied to composite resins
- How to successfully and predictably place a bulk-filled restoration
- Proper placement techniques that maximize clinical outcomes and esthetics
- How to create and maintain correct posterior anatomy and contours
- MODERATORS: Dr. Larry Stone and Dr. Pappy Chhina
The world of dentistry is evolving at an unprecedented rate. This course will take a critical look at dental technologies as it relates to the restorative arena with close attention to the current marketplace of digital impressioning units and chair-side restorative milling systems. While examining the in-office CAD/CAM technologies, you'll also get an overview of lab-based technologies that allow dentists to offer new materials without a large investment.LEARNING OBJECTIVES
- Understand the evolution of CAD/CAM dentistry over the last 5 years
- Understand the pros and cons of the major in-office CAD/CAM technologies in the marketplace
- Understand the financial impact of investing in CAD/CAM technology
- Be given strategies to manage incorporation of these new technologies into clinical practice
Technologies with Regards to Caries and Oral Cancer Detection: This course will look at the evolution of dentistry as it pertains to technologies. Historically, caries have been diagnosed with a combination of visual and tactile detection. While this modality has been reasonably accurate, research does show that there is a tendency for caries to be missed at the early stages. In today's world of minimally invasive dentistry, we have the ability to surgically or chemically treat the lesions before they become larger issues.LEARNING OBJECTIVES
- Understand how new technologies in the marketplace allow early and predictable detection
- Understand a brief overview of how digital detection fits into CAMBRA
- Understand insight into the efficient treatment of conservative restorations with new resin materials
- MODERATORS: Dr. Gary Peters and Ms. Maureen Sychterz
Children are positioned to benefit the most from an office offering oral healthcare rather than simple dentistry. Despite the challenges that come along with treating tiny tots, the potential exists to create a healthy mouth that will last a lifetime. Is it possible to control the most prevalent disease on earth when your patient can't sit still for more than 2 minutes? What do you really need in which to invest your precious capital?LEARNING OBJECTIVES
- Change patient and parent behavior
- WATR rather than "watch" early caries lesions
- Create interim therapeutic restorations
It may seem as though death is the only foolproof way to prevent dental caries, but material science provides clinicians with an array of new therapies. Enamel caries, dentin caries, and root caries are actually unique entities that require different perspective for successful treatment. Armed with the tools and techniques of caries management, it is possible to keep mouths healthy during and past their prime.LEARNING OBJECTIVES
- Prevent root caries
- Arrest root surface caries lesions
- Select restorative options for extreme risk environments
