Dentist Fee: $375.00  Other Fee: $375.00

Confronted with a bombed out primary tooth and don’t know which way to turn? You treat mega-adult cases with implants and prostheses, but you’re scared of a baby tooth attached to a kid? This workshop reviews pulp therapy and will improve your skills on esthetic and full coverage restorations. Treatment is performed on typodont teeth with pulp chambers for realism.

Type: Participation    Handouts: Yes

How do you know when and how to save a space when a tooth is lost or missing? This workshop will review the various indications for and types of unilateral and bilateral space maintainers with practice on Gerber chairside band and loop, lingual holding arch and transpalatal arch. We will also work on space regaining appliances and their indications as well as fabricating a distal shoe-type appliance, an appliance that causes fear even amongst practitioners with many years of experience.

Fr342 - Can You Really Save That (and Why Would You?): Treatment Options for Carious Primary Teeth
Time: 1 - 4 PM
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

Are you totally confused on how to treat teeth in children? Don’t they all fall out anyway? And what about the kid they’re attached to? This course reviews local anesthesia, pulp therapy, restorations and space maintenance in the primary and early mixed dentitions. Minimally invasive dentistry will be discussed and analyzed including LSTR, Hall crowns and SDF while learning that minimally invasive may not be pain free. The attendee will learn to embrace a treatment paradigm that includes function and longevity, review treatment and understand risk factors for pulp therapy and aesthetic and functional restorations and see ways to easily determine which space maintainer (even cosmetic ones) to use when extraction is the option.

Does your front staff respond appropriately to real dental emergencies by screening fully and communicating to the back? We will review the most common dental emergencies in children as well as assessment, treatment and follow-up protocols. The process from initial phone call screening through scheduling will be analyzed helping your office seamlessly integrate emergencies.
