How Low Should You Go? Treatment of the Deep Caries Lesion

Dr Maggio

Dr. John Maggio, 
(Hon)BSc, DDS, MSc
(ORTHO) FRCD(C)

Tuition: $99 |  REGISTER NOW

2 CE points (Category 2)

Zoom Online Webinar

Course Description: 

What’s the best way to approach a large carious lesion? Can we avoid exposure of the pulp and endodontic therapy if the tooth is vital and asymptomatic? What will happen if we leave some soft dentin under a well-sealed restoration? What does the scientific evidence tell us?

The “medical model” requires that dentists understand the caries disease process, and use that knowledge to treat affected teeth appropriately. In this course, Dr. Maggio provides a literature review as a framework for rethinking our approach to caries as a disease.

Specific guidelines will be developed for treatment of very deep lesions, small carious lesions, and recurrent caries. Many clinical cases will be presented, to directly apply this information to the dentist’s daily routine.

Educational Objectives:

After completing the course, you will:

  • see caries as a disease process and treat lesions using the “medical model”
  • understand the nature of soft dentin, and its ability to be remineralized
  • be able to choose between indirect pulp caps, “stepwise excavation”, and “ultraconservative caries removal”
  • know the indications for, and advantages of, glass ionomer materials, including the “open sandwich technique”
  • be familiar with “atraumatic” caries removal

Key areas covered include functional determinants, aesthetic factors, and spatial challenges.

Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of the lecture, participants should be able to:

  • Acquire an understanding of malocclusion's multifaceted impacts, from functional disorders to societal implications.
  • Understand key aesthetic and functional determinants in orthodontic treatment need, navigating the challenges of tooth spacing and crowding.
  • Understand the critical importance of implementing interceptive strategies during pivotal growth phases.

Anatomical Variations on CBCT: Can They Impact Clinical Practice?

Dr Christiano de Oliveira Santos

Christiano de Oliveira Santos
DDS, MS, PhD

Tuition: $99 |  REGISTER NOW

2 CE points (Category 2)

Zoom Online Webinar

Course Description: 

Cone beam computed tomography is a powerful tool in dentistry and is widely used for diagnosis and treatment planning in various clinical conditions. Over two decades of CBCT use have made us aware of how often patients present anatomical variations not seen on 2D radiographs. Moreover, these anatomical variations may significantly impact treatment planning. This course covers common anatomical variations seen on CBCT and how these findings impact clinical practice.

Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

  1. Recognize dental, osseous, and neurovascular anatomical variations commonly observed in CBCT exams.
  2. Discuss the clinical significance of anatomical variation findings and how they may influence treatment planning.
