Implications of Bisphosphonate Use for the Dentist
The authors look into the research studies into bisphosphonates, the important classification of drugs for the treatment of bone diseases. Are bisphosphonates safe when used during or around implant treatment? The authors have some good news for us.

Using Cross-Sectional Tomography to Perform Exploratory Radiography
Since osseointegration was first introduced by Branemark, dental implants have been used increasingly to replace missing teeth. The high predictability of implant success has been well documented. Unfortunately, there are numerous failures in implant dentistry. The primary failure on endosseous dental implants include improper diagnosis, treatment planning, and/or sequenceing; poor periodontal tissue management and/or maintenance; improper implant position at surgery; and aesthetic requirements…

CBCT / CadCam Restorative Technologies in Clinical Dentistry
This lecture will provide you with the background information on the rapidly changing digital dental technologies that allow you to make enlightened decision on what to use and how to gain the greatest benefit when incorporated into your practice. Recent advances such as three-dimensional dental radiography with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), virtual dental implant planning, clinical execution with guided surgery and new computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology for the implant abutment and restoration all play a role in the success of modern implant dentistry. While the benefits of CBCT scans for treatment planning and fabrication of surgical guides is well understood, this lecture will also illuminate and clarify the inherent potential problems found in some imaging data.

Integration of 3D Digital Technology: The Advancements in Today’s Dentistry
So in this Webinar Dr. Gamil will discuss the concept of Total digital solution, and how to understand, integrate and implement it in everyday practice, starting with the phase of scanning: CBCT, Intraoral or in lab optical scanners, face photos, digital models, impression scans and their integration.
Then going through the phase of planning using the acquired data using specialized software, showing the added benefit and amazing potentials and ending with the different type of manufacturing such as: 3D printing, Laser sintering, Milling and their applications and how this pool forms together what we call the total digital solutions and how to be familiar with the workflow, implement and ride this wave of tomorrow becoming a reality today.
CAD CAM Dentistry for Teeth and Implants
This webinar will discuss options for Cad/Cam fabrication of ceramic restorations for teeth and implants. The technologies available today can give the same aesthetic restorations with half the time, and half the visits. The software capabilities are available for all types of restorations. All the different types of scanners will be discussed and how they are used in a prosthetic private practice. Various CAD - ceramic materials allow the clinician to get high translucency, high flexural strength and excellent marginal integrity.
Comprehending Maxillofacial Anatomy and Related Pathology with CBCT
The advent of CBCT has brought a great deal of excitement to the dental professionals. For the first time, we have a diagnostic tool which has overcome the known disadvantages of the traditional projectional dental diagnostic images (periapical and panoramic radiographs) with the provision of sharp sectional images at any desired plane (multiplannar imaging). However, the interpretation of these images is somewhat challenging mainly due to the anatomical complexity of the maxillofacial region and the lack of familiarity of the profession with multiplannar imaging. This course will review in detail the anatomy of the certain challenging sites (neck, paranasal sinuses etc) of maxillofacial region and discuss the related pathological entities. Often times these may be simply incidental findings fact that raises the degree of the responsibility of the dental professional.
