When faced with fractured or broken down teeth or dentition, often the choices are limited to crowns or extraction and replacement with implants, fixed bridges or removable partial dentures. Limited finances, an aging population and the improvement of direct esthetic bonded composite expand treatment options. During this course, you will learn how to do routine Class 2 posterior composites, direct composite veneers, post and cores with the core serving as a direct interim crown, direct bonded bridges, and salvaging severely fractured teeth with composite. Complex onlays can often replace crowns when a patient fractures one or more cusps. These techniques will help you solve challenges which you will encounter on a daily basis in your private practice. Clinical cases will demonstrate the versatility of well-done composite restorations, giving the esthetics and durability of porcelain with the advantage of simple repair and lower cost. In addition to the clinical considerations of assisting patients with limited finances, available practice management resources such as in-office dental plans and dental credit services will be reviewed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to save fractured teeth with composite
  • Determine how improvements of direct esthetic bonded composite expand treatment options in your practice
  • Discover how to solve challenges compacted by limited available finances

An overview of the interrelationship between periodontal disease and diabetes, cardiovascular health, stroke, cancer, pregnancy, respiratory diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and kidney disease will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the latest scientific evidence on how oral health impacts general health

Are you confused about when it is necessary to use antibiotic prophylaxis for patients with prosthetic joints, cardiac valve replacements, kidney dialysis, AV shunts, transplant patients and other medical conditions? This course will make you confident you are treating these patients appropriately.  The use of antibiotic prophylaxis and how it affects bacteremia and distant site infections will be discussed.  The biology and physiology of prosthetic joint infections and infective endocarditis as well as the related Clinical Practice Guidelines will be reviewed. The risks and benefits of antibiotic prophylaxis will be demonstrated.

Antibiotics have improved health outcomes since the discovery of penicillin. However, their overuse and misuse has now threatened their effectiveness and led to superbug infections that are untreatable.  This course will provide antibiotic stewardship guidance. It will also review the latest ADA Clinical Practice Guidelines related to when antibiotics are appropriate for patients with odontogenic infections as well as prescribing recommendations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the biology and physiology of prosthetic joint infections and infective endocarditis
  • Discover the risks and benefits of antibiotic prophylaxis
