Enhancing the Esthetic Outcome of Implant Restorations with Socket Preservation
AGD Subject Code(s): 691, 692 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Scott Froum, DDS, Chris Salierno, DDS
14565

Tooth extraction or tooth loss can often result in both alveolar ridge resorption and soft tissue collapse. Preservation of bone volume and soft tissue height at the time of tooth extraction is an important procedure that can facilitate implant placement and ensure that proper restorative goals are met. Proper management of extraction sites at the time of tooth extraction can reduce or eliminate the future need for advanced ridge augmentation procedures prior to implant placement. In addition, poor extraction site management may lead to esthetic and functional prosthetic complications.

Pre-Veneered Stainless Steel Crowns - An Aesthetic Alternative
AGD Subject Code(s): 430 CE credits: 1 Cost: $20.00
Faculty: Dr. Carla Cohn
14872

 Preformed metal crowns (stainless steel / nickel chrome crowns) will outperform Intra coronal restorations in terms of longevity since they are reliable and durable. But an aesthetic alternative has not been available in the past. Statistics show that when full coverage is required, it is commonly the first primary molars. Since the mandibular first primary molars are the most visible, this is the area with the highest concern for aesthetics, besides the anterior teeth. When full coverage is required, stainless steel crowns are the gold standard of treatment in many aspects, however, there is a need for an aesthetic full coverage option.

Preventive Intervention For Bruxism
AGD Subject Code(s): 185 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Howard E. Strassler, DMD, FADM, FAGD, FACD
14503

Bruxism is a parafunctional occlusal activity, that may exist as either sleep bruxism or awake bruxism. Bruxers have more noticeable signs of dental attrition, abfractions, and occlusal pits on their natural teeth than other patients. Clinical approaches to managing bruxism can be categorized as acute, preventive and chronic, with the approach depending on the patient’s signs and symptoms. Preventive intervention is required if a patient presents with tooth wear. A primary preventive approach in the treatment of bruxism is the fabrication and utilization of a nightguard.

Repositioning Malaligned Implants and Performing Direct and Indirect Pick Up Procedures for Implant Retained Overdentures with Accuracy
CE credits: 1.5 Cost: $30.00
Faculty: Joseph Massad, DDS
14786

The overall long-term health and comfort of the implant prosthetic patient requires the ability of the practitioner to replace the worn overdenture from a bar design to modern paralleled stud type attachments. Also many implants that are not parallel and in cases when a bar design is not doable the ability for the practitioner to correct the severe malalignment is made possible by having several angle abutment choices to choose from. This lecture will also demonstrate how to maintain the existing vertical and horizontal relationships while picking up retentive elements in the prosthesis.

Program Format Note: This program is offered in both a Text based format (PDF) and an Audio Video Webinar format (Interactive).

The Hard and Soft Chairside Denture Reline
Not Rated
AGD Subject Code(s): 671 CE credits: 1 Cost: $20.00
Faculty: Ian Shuman, DDS
15359

Complete and partial removable dentures can become ill-fitting. This can be due to alveolar ridge resorption, wear and damage to the denture base, among others. Chairside denture relining or repairing broken areas can correct many of these problems. Chairside procedures provide immediate resolution, avoiding the edentulous period of time accompanying laboratory relines. This course will demonstrate the evaluation, treatment planning and implementation of chairside denture relining in a variety of scenarios.

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.
