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.

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. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )
