Over 58 million Americans have at least one form of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) or cardiovascular disease (CVD). 50% of all cardiac deaths result from CHD. This CE webinar will review risk factors, such as atherosclerosis, and discuss the role of cholesterol in the process in women and men.
Since reliable and precise tooth movements are essential for ideal orthodontic treatment results, can clinicians offer the same or even better patient outcomes with Invisalign® as they do with standard wire and bracket systems? During this CE webinar, Dr. Ibrahim will explore this question and walk you through her journey of integrating Accelerated Invisalign as her preferred treatment modality for all patients. Through a series of case reviews, she will show how integrating AcceleDent® with Invisalign patients’ treatment helps ensure that the programmed movements in the aligners will be expressed more predictably during the treatment period. She will discuss how Align Technology’s innovations with the software, materials and features built into the aligners also help ensure that she’s able to provide the same, and more often, better control of tooth movement, more efficient patient care and enhanced results than with standard fixed appliances.
As dental professionals need to address the implant maintenance challenge with researched-based protocols to be able to assess, identify, and know when to refer for peri-implantitis. Many of us are confused by conflicting messages. In this CE webinar, end the confusion with a comprehensive system for assessment, instrumentation, monitoring, and peri-implant disease treatment including cement residue implantitis.
This CE webinar discusses the new “scaling” dental code. This code reports scaling where an evaluation can be performed; there is no bone loss, but there is moderate or severe gingival inflammation present. This procedure would typically be followed a few weeks later by a prophylaxis as determined by the dentist.
How do you treat patients who present with Xerostomia? This CE webinar we will review the prevalence of patients experiencing complications and discomfort from reduced, natural salivary flow. We will also discuss a novel approach to soothing/moisturizing dry mouth tissues, treating sensitivity, and helping to prevent caries and gingivitis.
This CE webinar will review, in a real world “wet fingered” dentist’s way, some of the techniques, technologies and key research on how to perform advanced adhesion dentistry simply in your office on a daily basis.

These techniques will be illustrated with step-by-step images and videos of multiple clinical cases.
The digital revolution is here and influencing many aspects of our daily dental practices. This concise CE webinar is packed with clinical examples and ideas to help you develop a systematic approach for every indirect procedure from start to finish - digital preparation design and impression tips to temporization and delivery of a highly-polished, accurate final restoration. Discussion will specifically revolve around how to incorporate digital scanning into your workflow without the milling process.
In this CE webinar, you will develop a better understanding of when to use Glass Ionomer products as a Bio-Active dentin substitute. Glass Ionomers have a therapeutic benefit as well as ionic exchange adhesion Minimally Invasive Restorations originate from the “inside out”.
Have you ever been concerned with the decision to proceed with endodontic treatment or to be in a “holding pattern“? Endodontics requires a high level of technical skills and biological understanding. In this CE webinar, Dr. Olmsted will share his 15 steps for endodontic diagnosis, allowing the clinician and staff to consider appropriate case selection and treatment planning.
