Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Computer-Guided Applications Beyond Implants: Bone Grafting and Reconstructive Surgery Premium Member Content

Computer-Guided Applications Beyond Implants: Bone Grafting and Reconstructive Surgery
Technology has facilitated the diagnosis and treatment planning process allowing clinicians to become true architects and engineers of the oral cavity. Replacing missing teeth with an implant supported restoration represents both a surgical and restorative challenge due to bony defects / concavities, soft tissue concerns, emergence profile, and insufficient bone volume or bone density to stabilize an implant. The evolution of three-dimensional imaging modalities (CBCT) produces an unprecedented visualization of patient’s individual anatomy, which empowers the clinician with new state-of-the-art tools to diagnose and treatment plan with greater accuracy to manage the surgical site, increase precision, reduce patient morbidity, and avoid potential complications.

Smile Design 3D vs. 2D: The Evolution of Precision in Esthetic Digital Dentistry Premium Member Content

Smile Design 3D vs. 2D: The Evolution of Precision in Esthetic Digital Dentistry
In the digital dentistry era, trials never stop to achieve a full digital workflow to fabricate aesthetic restorations based on predictable and accurate facial guided smile design methods but the existing techniques present limitations in the process of transferring the design from 2D to 3D as they are mainly based on 2D Photography and 2D to 3D superimposition and transfers. In this presentation a review of the available techniques and technologies is presented as well as a novel technique that has been used to design a 3D smile frame using 3D face scans, 3D intra oral optical scans, CBCT and multiple software to overcome the limitations of already available 2D smile design systems offering predictable, more accurate and easier to use workflows for success in analysis, planning, design and execution in everyday clinical practice.

Comprehending Maxillofacial Anatomy and Related Pathology with CBCT Premium Member Content

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.
