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

Factors Affecting the Accuracy of Guided Implant Surgery 

Arndt Guentsch

Dr. Arndt Guentsch, 
DMD, PhD, MHBA, MS

 

Tuition: $75 |  REGISTER NOW

1.5 CE points (Category 2)

Zoom Online Webinar

Course Description: 

Malpositioned implants are hard to restore, may compromise the esthetical outcome and are a main factor for soft tissue dehiscencies around implants. Guided implant surgery improves the accuracy of implant placement for both experienced provider and beginners. Static computer-assisted implant surgery is the first-line option in guided implant surgery due to the available data and reduced cost of the equipment. However, the accuracy of guided surgery can be impacted by patient factors, the data acquisition and processing, the guide design and production, the sleeve type and height, the used guided surgery system, the surgical approach, and the support of the guide to name just a few. The presentation will give an introduction into guided implant surgery and will review the latest research to allow provider to understand, to plan, and execute guided surgery in a way that highest accuracy can be achieved.

Educational Objectives:

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

  • Define the benefits of guided implant surgery
  • Distinguish between static computer-assisted implant surgery (sCAIS), dynamic navigation, and robot-assisted implant surgery (RAIS)
  • Know the basic digital workflow for computer assisted implant surgery
  • Understand the impact of design principles of surgical guides on the accuracy of implant placement
