Thursday Courses
TH223 - Diagnosis and Treatment for Predictable Advanced Restorative Cases
Time: 12 - 3 PM
Room: GWCC,
Type: Registered    Handouts: No
Dentist Fee: $80.00  Other Fee: $50.00

Advanced diagnosis and treatment planning for comprehensive restorative dentistry is necessary to ensure the best possible chance for successful treatment. Ever questioned why a treatment approach worked on one patient and that same treatment failed on the next? This presentation will overview some guidelines as to when occlusal factors may play a role in restorative failure and temporomandibular disorder. Based on solid principles, this presentation will guide attendees through the management of complex cases. Learn when to treat in centric occlusion and when to restore to centric relation. The course will also discuss occlusal contact-triggered TMD, predictable diagnosis and treatment with splint therapy, and definitive treatment sequence for comprehensive restorative cases.

 

Friday Courses
FR256 - Clinical Consideration for Implant and Restorative Success
Time: 8:30 - 11:30 AM
Room: GWCC,
Type: Registered    Handouts: No
Dentist Fee: $80.00  Other Fee: $50.00

Predictable long-term results may not be possible without considering an interdisciplinary approach to treatment. When working well together, we can offer the greatest potential for an outstanding treatment result. If not diagnosed well, implants may be a clinical failure both functionally and aesthetically. The finished restoration cannot only be strong and functional, but also needs to be a very aesthetic replacement of natural teeth. This presentation focus is for the restorative treatment phase of these cases. The course will identify tooth replacement treatment options, how to shape tissue around both pontics and implant support restorations and examine treatment for single and multiple unit implant retained cases.

FR273 - Predictable Direct Restorative Techniques
Time: 1 - 4 PM
Room: Omni,
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $80.00  Other Fee: $50.00

Restorative care demands continuous learning in the areas of material science and restorative technique. The numerous choices in restorative materials have confused the clinician as to what is best indicated in a given situation. Clinical success demands an understanding of the uses and limitations of these different materials. This lecture course provides a comprehensive discussion of the ever-changing world of dentinal adhesives when considering direct restorative treatment. The course will review available options in adhesive materials including glass Ionomers and bioactive materials, eliminate the frustration of postoperative sensitivity and restorative failure, and implement techniques and material selection for near or direct pulp exposures.

Saturday Courses
SA295 - Mastering the Indirect Adhesive Interface
Time: 9 AM - 12 PM
Room: Omni,
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $80.00  Other Fee: $50.00

This fast-paced program will be packed with 100 percent clinically-proven materials and techniques for every clinical dentist. A brief intro on the science of adhesive materials will support preparation, material selection and placement of the partial and full coverage indirect restorations. Also covered will be the steps for a predictable and long-lasting repair of the “clinically feared” fractured restoration. This is a must for every clinical dentist. The course will evaluate adhesive systems best indicated with the indirect restoration. Attendees will learn preparation, material selection and clinical technique and proper implement technique for long-lasting repair of fractured porcelain restoration.
