Upcoming Events

    • “Supra-Gingival Dentistry…Excellence with Metal-free Posterior Indirect Onlays, Full Crowns and Fixed Prothesis” 7 CE units CORE Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz

      Sep 16, 2016

      REGISTRATION FORM Sept 2016Ruiz 

      “Supra-gingival Dentistry…Excellence with Metal-free Posterior Indirect Onlays, Full Crowns, and Fixed Prosthesis”

      When a larger part of the tooth is missing or decayed, Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) crowns are by far the most popular indirect restorations, although they have some less than ideal characteristics, including aggressive tooth preparation and often soft tissue irritation. In this course, Dr. Ruiz will demonstrate how properly performed supra-gingival, minimally-invasive non-metal restorations make dentistry more predictable and trouble-free; as well as healthier for the patient than any traditional restoration has ever been. The improved esthetic results achieved with non-metal onlays and all ceramic full crowns have resulted in increased use and enhanced patient acceptance and satisfaction. Nevertheless, clinicians often feel that these restorations are more difficult and less predictable than traditional dentistry. Placing supra-gingival margins ultimately allows clinicians to make porcelain restorations more predictable, stress free, and healthier for the gingival tissue. In this course, Dr. Ruiz will demonstrate material selection and a new paradigm in preparation and cementation. Dr. Ruiz will cover benefits, indication, and principles of tooth preparation for posterior metal free onlays and all porcelain crowns and FPD. Followed by impression, temporization and different options for a sensitive free, easy cementation.  Dr. Ruiz will also discuss patient education and motivation for this type of dentistry. 

      Objectives:

      • Demonstrate how supra-gingival, minimally invasive onlays and all ceramic crowns are healthier for patients and more predictable and enjoyable for the dentist
      • Distinguish between onlays, or all porcelain crowns systems and identify which one works best under a particular circumstance
      • Learn the new paradigm of simple predictable tooth preparation techniques specific to supra-gingival minimally invasive, veneers, onlays, etc.
      • Demonstrate temporization
      • Choose which bonding systems and cements are most appropriate for use with inlays and onlays and metal free full crowns
      • Describe sensitive free and easy cementation techniques
    • “Groundbreaking Technologies in Oral Health Care” 6 CE units CORE Daniel Llop, CDT

Some of his work can be seen in Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry, Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, Dentistry Today, Journal of the California Dental Association, CAD-CAM Dentistry Journal, JDT and Dental Lab Products, The OSTEOPERIOSTEAL Flap, and 3D Imaging technologies for Facial Plastic Surgery.

      COURSE OBJECTIVES:

      1. Understand the evolution and step-by-step process of the nSequence Guided Prosthetics over traditional methods

             2. Grasp the advantages  using 3D virtual treatment planning

             3. Set a foundation for an objective surgical planning platform in maven Pro software

    • “Orofacial Pain and the ‘Counterfeit’ Toothache in the General Dentist Office” Dr. Kenneth Moore DDS; Dr. John Orsi DDS; Dr. Rich Hirschinger, DDS, MBA 6 CE UNITS

      Nov 4, 2016 9:00 am

      REGISTRATION FORM Moore Nov 4 2016

      Patients with pain in and around the mouth most often seek the care of their general family dentist. based on the knowledge gained from dental school and a lifetime of experience, most conditions are diagnosed and appropriately treated. When a patient points to the site of pain, a tooth, it is vital to understand that sometimes the site of the pain is NOT the source of the pain. If this fact is not appreciated, despite a well-intentioned practitioner, the patient received inappropriate and often invasive treatment. When the patient’s complaint does not respond to therapy, both the patient and dentist are left dissatisfied and confused. Much like a criminal investigation, the dentist and his team must operate as detectives, interviewing witnesses, collecting evidence, offering and reviewing laboratory findings, developing a list of suspects and through deductive reasoning, identify the criminal. This all day workshop will provide tools and knowledge to systematically approach all painful conditions and how to recognize and treat the ‘counterfeit’ toothache. 

      Learning Objectives:   Introduction to the specialty of Orofacial Pain; Understand the anatomical and physiological basis for referred pain; Review the most common conditions that can produce a ‘counterfeit’ toothache; Provide a systematic approach to recognize and diagnose the ‘counterfeit’ toothache; Understand when to treat and when to refer; Understand evidence based management protocols for the most common ‘counterfeit’ toothache.
