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 ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

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.
