    • “Implant Complications – Color and Shade Selection – Immediate Prosthodontics – Cranio-Facial Implants” Michael S Jacobs BS, DDS, MS, FACP 7 CE units

      Nov 3, 2017
      REGISTRATION FORM Jacobs Nov 3 2017 Implant Complications, Color and Shade Selection, Immediate Prosthodontics, Cranio-Facial Implants Implant Complications: This presentation will illustrate the most common implant complications and how to prevent and deal with these complications. This includes less than ideal implant placement, abutment loosening, soft tissue problems, acrylic resin fracture, porcelain fracture, screw breakage and fixture breakage. Each problem will be evaluated and a discussion of how the problem could have been avoided will be a central theme of this presentation. We will also demonstrate how these problems and complications were addressed. Color and Shade Selection: Color Science as it relates to dental shade selection will be discussed. The advantages of various shade guides will be addressed along with the use of a Spectrophotometer in the selection of an acceptable shade. The effect of the light source will also be presented as it relates to shade selection. Immediate Prosthodontics: The role of immediate prosthodontic replacement of teeth will be discussed as it related to removable, fixed, and implant prosthodontics. The planning and performance of immediate placement of removable and fixed dentures. Also, immediate provisionalization of an anterior implant will be presented along with the conversion of a complete denture to an immediately supported implant denture. The planning that is required for the various treatment options will be emphasized. Cranio-Facial Implants: The use of the cranio-facial implants will be illustrated. The restoration of ears, a mid-face defect, and a partial nose using cranio-facial implants will be discussed Course Objectives: 1. Be aware of the most common biomechanical implant complication 2. Understand how these complications can be minimized. 3. Understand the treatment techniques that can be used to overcome complications 4. Being consistent in shade selection. 5. Being aware how lighting affects shade selection. 6. Shade alteration techniques will be presented. 7. Awareness of the impression combinations that can be use for immediate dentures 8. Technique used to immediately convert a conventional mandibular denture into an implant supported denture the day of implant placement. 9. Provisionalization of and immediately placed implant in the anterior area of the mouth 10. An awareness of the potential of cranio-facial implants to aid in the restoration facial defects.
    • “Don’t Sleep on It: The Dentist’s Roll in Diagnosing and Treating OSA” Ariana Ebrahimian, DDS 7 CE units

      Jan 19, 2018
      REGISTRATION-FORM-January 2018 Ebrahimian DON’T SLEEP ON IT: The Dentist’s Role in Diagnosing and Treating OSA This course will focus on the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Special attention will be paid to how dentistry can either exacerbate or alleviate sleep disordered breathing. Course Objectives: • Participants will earn a comprehensive understanding of obstructive sleep apnea and its associated co-morbidities • How to screen for and identify patients with sleep disordered breathing • How to effectively implement the medical model in treating obstructive sleep apnea Cost: Member $135, Non Member $235, Auxiliary $65
    • “Stress Bite Related Disorders” Donald N. Reid, DDS, FICOI 7 CE units

      Feb 9, 2018
      REGISTRATION FORM Feb9 REID STRESS RELATED BITE DISORDERS Walk down any street and ask folks if they have an uncomfortable bite, headaches, face pain, ear pain and sore teeth or feel they grind their teeth and more than likely, you’ll hear, “Oh yes, I’ve been told I have TMJ!” If they don’t have those symptoms, chances are they know people who do. Conservative estimates are upward of 40 million people in the U.S. alone fit that category. Stress-related bite disorders are utterly mysterious and confusing to the majority of dentists, yet we skillfully repair patients’ teeth but miss a life-changing opportunity to help them in ways beyond imagination. Additionally, dentists miss an opportunity to convert ordinary dental patients to “raving fans.” Dr. Reid will utilize animations he’s created and case examples to help participants see for themselves why literally millions of people continue to needlessly suffer from stress-related jaw problems. Learning outcomes: • Learn the main elements for a healthy, stable and comfortable bite. • Understand the causes and effects of improper bites. • Learn how lifestyle stressors influence the magnitude of patients’ problems. • Learn what you really need to know about TMJ to safely treat 98 percent of your patients. • Learn the step-by-step formula for predictable, successful splint treatments. • Understand how to turn a patient visit with a broken crown into comprehensive restorative outcome. • Hear various treatment options to solve patients’ problems and the communication skills you need to know. • Learn how to interview patients before you look in their mouths to ensure they’ll accept you and what you offer them. • Learn a simplistic approach to the most comprehensive exam your patients ever had.
