A Practical Guide To The Use Of Luting Cements
AGD Subject Code(s): 017 CE credits: 3 Cost: $59.00
Faculty: John O. Burgess, DDS, MS
14523

Dentistry uses a wide range of cements to retain crowns, posts and fixed partial dentures to tooth structure. Dental practitioners should have a good understanding of the properties and categories of dental cements to ensure the long-term clinical performance of cemented restorations. Classes of dental cements have evolved from zinc phosphate to glass ionomers, resin modified glass ionomers, resin cements and lastly to self-adhesive resin cements. Self-adhesive resin cements require no bonding agents and simplify the cementation procedure. Since metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin and all-ceramic restorations are used today, an understanding of cement performance is needed before selecting a material to use in a particular situation. This article gives a brief review of cement performance and introduces a new material to the class of self-adhesive resin cements.

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.

The Hard and Soft Chairside Denture Reline
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.
