In dental impressioning, there are so many variables that must be accounted for in order to achieve a great impression every attempt. Nowadays, with the introduction of digital intraoral scanners, this holds true perhaps more than ever. There are many ways to achieve an acceptable outcome, whether the approach be by conventional or digital technique. In this CE webinar, we will discuss materials methods that provide predictable results for both approaches. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

Despite advancing technologies in dental caries and prevention it remains one of the most common oral diseases globally. Dental health care practitioners are challenged to continually evaluate current research and incorporate findings into clinical practice to adequately equip their patients with health promotion and preventive strategies. With a paradigm shift from drill and fill to minimally invasive dentistry, which focuses on conservation of tooth structure, a medical model of disease management needs to be incorporated. The caries management plan for each individual should be based upon reducing caries risk factors and enhancing the protective factors with the additional aid of behavior modification coupled with minimal intervention restorative dentistry, if appropriate. This CE webinar will take a look at the latest evidence-based practical guidelines for caries management along with strategies to incorporate new treatment methods into daily practice.

Dental material manufacturers tend to promote their respective materials using combinations of literature and various studies. Literature extols the physical properties of various materials, often using bar graph data to compare one competitor to another. The question is: what is the true importance of that “data” to “my dentistry?”

This CE webinar will discuss the clinical significance of those bar graphs. Life behind bars will take the listener into the world of material design and testing and attempt to connect the data to where it matters - the clinical application of the material. Mr. Connell will speak to the testing parameters and value of the data presented, while Dr. Ron Kaminer will discuss the clinical implications of the data being discussed.

Class 2 restorations are the one of the most common procedures done in dentistry but many of us find them stressful, are challenged to attain good adaptation in the box, find contacts unpredictable, struggle with sensitivity, and generally hate to see them in our schedules. And then there’s the issue with recurrent caries. Class 2 composite fillings have an average lifespan of 5-6 years. Failure is mostly frequently caused by secondary caries at the base of the proximal box. This CE webinar will teach the technique for efficiently placing successful Class 2 composite restorations. Feel confidence with Class 2s instead of the stress.
