Meeting #2: Managing Complex Dental Treatments

In this forum, Dr. Andrew Cobb will present current diagnostics and planning workflow for managing complex dental cases. He will discuss proper records, diagnostics, and analysis to help design treatment plans.

Participants will learn:

  • Diagnostics and planning workflow in managing complex cases
  • Necessary records and how to analyze them for planning
  • A methodical treatment plan strategy to achieve desired treatment outcomes

Date:  11/16/2017

Time: 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Meeting #3: Anterior Edentulism: Treatment Strategies for Aesthetic and Functional Restorations

Missing teeth in the anterior area of the mouth present unique challenges in both aesthetics and function. In this forum, we will present considerations in diagnostics and treatment planning when there are multiple missing teeth in the anterior region. We will discuss how to assess aesthetic requirements, occlusion, number and location of dental implants, and tissue management strategies for optimal aesthetics.

Participants will learn:

  • Considerations in multiply missing teeth in the anterior region
  • Aesthetic and functional diagnostics and planning strategies
  • Selection criteria for number of implants, restoration design, and restoration materials

Date: 01/11/2018

Time: 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Presenter:  Dr. Flavio Rasetto & Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi

Meeting #4: Faster, Easier and More Predictable Results: Determining Implant Stability and Scientific Loading Criteria

There can always be difficulties in determining the osseointegration status when an implant is to be loaded with the prosthesis. Nevertheless, it is vital to know whether the implant is stable. Research today demonstrates the implants can be subject to immediate or early loading, but there were no objective standard methods of determining implant stability which is critical to immediate or early loading.

Participants will learn:

  • Current scientific loading criteria for immediate or early loading will be presented with clinical cases and and reliable scientific data such as Resonance Frequency Analysis.
  • Determine impact of implant design on stability.
  • Evaluation of bone density and parafunction for successful implant procedures.
  • Understand loading protocols for everyday implant dentistry.

Date:  03/29/2018

Time: 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Meeting #5: Evolution- An Update on Ceramics, CAD/CAM, Bonding, and Implants

Dr. Markus Blatz; Professor of Restorative Dentistry, Chairman of the Department of Preventive and Restorative Sciences, and Assistant Dean for Digital Innovation and Professional Development at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine

What are the fundamental aesthetic treatment planning guidelines to select the best materials and treatment options for our patients considering the large variety of silica-based, high-strength, and hybrid ceramic materials available today? How to best integrate digital workflows and resin bonding technologies? How to design new smiles and handle bonded laminate veneers? Do different ceramics require specific laboratory and clinical treatment to function properly in the mouth? Is all zirconia the same? How to cement different ceramics? What are the best materials to restore dental implants? And, in this age of “evidence-based dentistry”, what is the scientific evidence on all of these topics?

This presentation will answer such questions in an unbiased manner and provide an update on aesthetic, less invasive, and long-term functional treatment options from conservative laminate veneers to implant-supported full-mouth rehabilitations. Case selection, tooth preparation, dental implants, digital manufacturing in the dental laboratory and in clinics, fundamental material science, as well as cementation and bonding techniques of ceramics based on decades of research and the latest scientific evidence will be presented.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and implement fundamental esthetic and treatment planning guidelines
  • Differentiate modern ceramic and hybrid materials and their indications
  • Learn about CAD/CAM technology and its diverse applications to fabricate indirect restorations
  • Understand strategies for success with ceramic restorations for teeth and implants based on the current scientific evidence
  • Apply adhesive dentistry concepts in combination with indirect restorations
  • Understand guidelines for successful and long-lasting esthetic restorations from laminate veneers to full-mouth implant-supported rehabilitation

Presenters: Dr. Markus Blatz
