The whys, wherefores and hows of replacing single missing tooth in the esthetic zone: strategies for implant supported crowns on different clinical indications.

In this webinar single tooth replacement in the esthetic zone will be covered. Different clinical situations will be described and according to indications appropriate approaches are going to be presented and discussed on clinical cases.

There are several challenging factors inherent on replacing a missing incisor in the esthetic zone. Decrease in bone and soft tissue volume, subsequent to tooth loss, is one of the most important of these factors. When the treatment option is an implant supported crown, adequate tissue volume becomes a prerequisite for optimum esthetic outcome. There are several treatment plan options available for the clinician to decide when a tooth is condemned to extraction. Immediate implant placement would be the first option in order to decrease treatment time and also to preserve tissue volume and contours. However, there are limitations for immediate implant placement.  Socket preservation could be another option for the management of fresh extraction sockets. If the tooth was lost certain time ago and ridge resorption has already been occurred then the clinician should consider augmentation techniques in order to obtain sufficient hard and soft tissue volume for pleasing esthetic results.

MIH in 2019

Patrick Rouas

MIH in 2019

A good knowledge of MIH will enable better care. But which strategy the practitioner should follow? Which prevention agents or dental materials should we choose? What knacks can be used in each step of treatment?

Nowadays, dental practitioners seem to be more and more confronted with molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH). This anomaly of enamel can cause some important deteriorations of first permanent molars and aesthetic problems on permanent incisors. An effective care must include early diagnosis, caries prevention of these fragile teeth, desensitizing, potential restorations and monitoring. If extraction is needed, orthodontia can help practitioners. Through a review of scientific publications and different case reports from our exercising, we’ll describe the care strategies of patients with MIH.

Stay out of Jail: Avoid Coding Errors

Dr. Charles Blair

Stay out of Jail: Avoid Coding Errors

Coding errors are predictable in today’s dental practice.

Learn the top coding errors – and how not to make them! You will also receive new, valuable information on some of the “hot” sections of the CDT code, which you can use to identify and “fix” coding problems that lurk in your practice. Most practices can expect legitimate net increases in cash flow immediately by learning how to do it right. Participants will learn:
  • The participant will learn through predictive error correction, how to avoid typical coding errors.
  • The participant will gain knowledge into narratives and documentation.
  • The participant will gain knowledge into clinical protocol sequences, particularly perio.

Have you been BOB’ed?

Theodora Little RDH

Have you been BOB’ed?

How BOB can can bridge the ‘interdental gap’ between increasing your patient health and revenue by doing prevention in a different way.

This short introduction of our friend BOB will demonstrate to clinicians how, with the help of an online app, they can increase their patients health and revenue purely through prevention. The BOB score not only provides an effective but quick bleeding score, but also an interdental brush mouth map in which the patient can use at home, and as we all know, the majority of dental diseases begin inter proximally. BOB is your new friend, there to support and motivate you and your patient even when you are not together.

Oral biofilm and its management in professional prophylaxis

Oral biofilm and its management in professional prophylaxis

In the era of mini-invasiveness also in dentistry, specifically for what concerns the Non-surgical periodontal therapy, you are trying to veer towards greater compliance fabrics, hard and soft. Our new therapeutic approach marries Flemming's proposal that in 2012, through Air Polishing Therapy, therapy based on the use of powders allow abrasiveness, proposes the removal of biofilm, the main proponent of oral diseases,in an atraumatic manner.This type of approach makes treatment, motivation and more precise and effective patient's instruction.The diagnostic aspect represents an essential basis from which to start. To it is It is necessary to combine a detailed knowledge of the mechanisms that contribute to extrusion. To isolate a periodontal pathological picture, which can be solved effectively by working within a cohesive team, prepared and well organized. During this webinar the diagnostic, etiopathogenetic, ergonomic, preventive and therapeutic aspects will be addressed.

Precision and preservation through enhanced dental microscope visualization

Precise crown preparation for CAD-CAM ceramic restorations with the dental microscope using augmented visualization will enhance clinical results for scanning/milling procedures as well as for conventional impressions.

With the advent of CAD-CAM technology, precision crown preparation is critical for success. This visual presentation will offer compelling evidence that the dental microscope will enable the dental practitioner to achieve improved clinical outcomes in all phases of restorative dentistry. Step by step preparation protocols for perfect finish lines for all ceramic crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays will be demonstrated with a dental microscope using augmented visualization to expand applications for restorative dentistry The clinical procedure highlighted will be veneer renewal demonstrating removal of existing veneers, preparation, impression, provisionalization and final placement.

Biological approach to dental implantology: An evidence based choice

This lecture aims to provide insights into the important evidence-based choices made during the development and the clinical impact of this unique implant, based on clinical indications and cases.

The development of the V3 implant focused on the design of the conical connection and the titanium grade of all components, providing more bone where it matters most. The V3 has a unique triangular neck design, resulting in minimal cortical bone compression, though ensuring excellent primary stability. This triangular shape also results in narrow chambers around the implant, allowing blood pooling and blood clot formation, thereby maintaining crestal bone vitality and enabling new bone growth. Placing the implant slightly sub-crestal even enhances more bone growth in these critical crestal bone areas. Sub-crestal placement, however, requires a very tight connection between implant and abutment, protecting the crestal bone from bacterial infiltration or micro-movement of the abutment.

Mandatory daily brushing Law in Kindergarten and Elementary Public Schools in Mexico city

From the Why to the How

Deconstructing the Mexico City law on mandatory brushing. We must bring Oral Health education back into the Classroom with daily brushing program supervised by teachers. This course provides a summary of how this was accomplished and can be adopted by others. Partcipnts will learn:
  • How to create alternative disruptive programs to reduce Dental Caries
  • Why underserve population without access to dental care will certainly benefit from school programs
  • How good habits are acquired at an early age

Is Good Dental Health a Benefit Experienced by All?

Su-yan Barrow RDH, MA, MPH, PhD

Is Good Dental Health a Benefit Experienced by All?

Oral disease is a health issue experienced by children and adults living in the United States.

The burden of poor dental health affects a disproportionate number of the population in the United States. Many of these individuals represent diverse ethnic groups. As dental professionals what can we do to address the oral health needs of diverse population groups? Participants will learn:
  • Understand social determinant factors that influence oral health outcomes
  • Describe the population groups that disproportionately experience oral health disparities
  • Explain recommendations to address the oral health needs of diverse population groups
