* The Hygienist’s Role in Implant Therapy: An Introduction
CE credits: 1 Cost: $20.00
Faculty: Scott Froum, DDS, Chris Salierno, DDS
15306

Dental implants have become a quickly growing facet of dentistry with purported good success rates. In order to obtain a successful esthetic result in implant dentistry, communication among the members of the implant team is crucial. The traditional members of the implant team include the surgeon, restorative dentist, and the laboratory technician. However, just as important as members of the implant team are the hygienist and the patient. The long term success of implant dentistry is dependent on the maintenance role taken by the hygienist and the ability of the hygienist to act as “first responders” when implant complications arise. Proper diagnosis, prevention, and treatment strategies are essential for hygienists to know in order for a dentist to have a healthy and successful implant practice.

  • Implement hygienist participation as integral members of the implant team.
  • Recognize the clinical signs of implant complications.
  • Implement proper diagnosis, prevention and treatment strategies for implant patients.

Advanced Digital Implant Dentistry
AGD Subject Code(s): 149 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Scotty L. Bolding, DDS, MS
14752
The Dental Implant industry has seen significant advances in the past three decades, however there are still millions of people across the globe with missing teeth that have not enjoyed the benefits of replacing their teeth with dental implants. There are many factors that prevent patients from choosing implants such as fear, cost, and lack of knowledge. However, even in developed countries there are still many dentists that do not offer their patients implants because of the perceived complexity and cost associated with offering dental implants to their patients. 
 
New digital technologies are beginning to streamline the dental implant workflow and simplify the delivery for the dental implant team.   Through advanced digital engineering, dentists are now able to offer precise guided planning, digital impressions, CAD/CAM models, and restorations.   These techniques are providing the revolutionary opportunity for the dental team to collaborate and plan dental implant cases virtually with more predictable cost and more predictable outcomes.

Enhancing the Esthetic Outcome of Implant Restorations with Socket Preservation (webinar)
AGD Subject Code(s): 691, 692 CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Scott Froum, DDS, Chris Salierno, DDS

Poor extraction site management can lead to future esthetic and functional prosthetic complications. On the other hand, preservation of bone volume and soft tissue height at the time of tooth extraction can help make possible prosthetically-driven implant placement and attainment of functional and esthetic restorative goals. Proper management of extraction sites at the time of tooth extraction may also can reduce or eliminate the future need for advanced ridge augmentation procedures prior to implant placement.

How to Get to "YES" with Geriatric Dental Implant Patients
AGD Subject Code(s): 690, 752 CE credits: 1 Cost: $20.00
Faculty: Eric Shapira, DDS, MA, MHA
15304

People are living longer and keeping their dentitions longer. Our healthcare capabilities are much better than the early 1900’s when the average lifespan was approximately 47 years of age. Although almost 25 % of the US population is edentulous, an even greater number of people over the age of 65 years will be prone to being partially edentulous in the future. This cohort of people will have the opportunity to receive one or more dental implants as tooth replacements. Dental implants were first recognized in the 1950’s as a source of alternative tooth replacement. Now they have evolved to being the first choice in restorative procedures to replace a missing tooth or teeth. In these strained economic times; however, it may be a difficult decision for our senior population to spend large amounts of money to replace missing teeth with dental implants. How to get to “YES” with potential geriatric dental implant patients is a discussion about the techniques of communication and empathic responses to important questions. Also discussed are strategies to enable patients to consider dental implants rather than a fixed bridge or removable appliance, where indicated. Among the most difficult parts of a dentist’s job is getting our patients to accept what our clinical judgment indicates they need. The ultimate decision about having dental treatment is the patient’s.

Restoration of an Immediate Extraction Site Using a High Silica Quartz Glass Fiber Reinforced Provisional Bridge
Not Rated
AGD Subject Code(s): 695 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Ian Shuman, DDS
15511

Following the extraction of a tooth it is frequently ideal to replace it at the same appointment. In instances where a multi-unit fixed prosthesis is the best treatment, an immediate provisional should be fabricated. Due to the length of time needed for the socket to heal completely and achieve its mature contour, a long term provisional must be created. This course will demonstrate the steps needed to fabricate a long term provisional bridge using a quartz fiber reinforcement material.

Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together: Chair Side CAD/CAM and Cone Beam Integration in Implantology
AGD Subject Code(s): 615, 616 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: August de Oliveira, DDS
15144

Chairside CAD/CAM and cone beam scanners work together to help make dental implants a safe, predictable, efficient procedure for patients and dentists. A CAD/CAM optical scan and crown proposal can aid dentists in many ways. The crown proposal and soft tissue represented in an optically scanned virtual model can aid the doctor in the presurgical planning of implants. The virtual hard and soft tissue model can be combined with a cone beam scan to reduce artifacts created by radiopaque materials. Optical scans of duplicate dentures can aid in the planning of edentulous cases. In some cases an intraoral scan can replace a stone model in the fabrication of a surgical guide. CEREC® guide is a milled surgical guide that allows dentists to place implants via guided surgery chairside. With new advances in both lab and chairside CAD/ CAM systems, dentists now have the ability to fabricate custom abutments, crowns and frameworks.
