Bisphosphonates and Their Impact on Patient Treatment
There has been increasing discussion concerning a variety of implications for patients who have been administered bisphosphonates, which are FDA-approved chemical agents used in the treatment of osteoporosis, metastatic cancer involving the bone, and Paget's disease. I The first report of the biological characteristics of bisphosphonates was published in 1968, when scientists discovered that bisphosphonates have a marked ability to inhibit bone resorption. Bisphosphonates suppress or reduce bone…
Legal Considerations in the use of Cone Beam Computer Tomography Imaging
Cone beam computed tomography imaging represents a paradigm shift for enhancing diagnosis and treatment planning. Questions regarding cone beam computed tomography’s associated legal responsibility are addressed, including cone beam computed tomography necessity, recognition of pathosis in the scan’s entire volume, adequate training, informed consent and/or refusal and current court status of cone beam computed tomography. Judicious selection and prudent use of cone beam computed tomography technology to protect and promote patient safety and efficacious treatment complies with the standard of care.

Managing Technology for Best Outcomes and Productivity
Digital technology provides tools to improve planning, clinical execution, prosthetic design, manufacturing, maintenance, and cost of care.
Dental professionals need to understand the value of individual technologies as well as the benefit derived from linking them together.
During this presentation, a business model and clinical cases will be used to illustrate how a number of digital technologies can impact outcomes and productivity.

Interdisciplinary Dentistry: Distilling Complex Patient Management Down to Fundamental Steps
The interaction between different specialties is a common treatment modality in patients with severely mutilated dentitions as well as in those with more limited clinical conditions but with high esthetic demands. In theory, every oral rehabilitation should be better approached by a multidisciplinary treatment.
From 2D to 3D: The Benefits of 3D-X-ray in the Different Fields of Dentistry
CBCT(Cone Beam Computed Tomography) has developed in the last years from a highly specialized used subject used mainly by specialized surgeons and implantologists to a wide field of indications, used mostly by general practitioners, periodontists, endodontists, general implantologists and orthodontists. The picture quality has increased drastically so the 3-D X-ray techniques are able to show aspects that 2-D X-ray-techniques are unable to present. 3-D X-ray systems are linked today to other diagnostic and electro-mechanical systems as there are automaticised software measure and diagnostic tools, intra and extra-oral scanning systems and CAD-CAM-milling-systems. That increases the diagnostic and treatment possibilities this systems offers to the users.
