Detailed impressions for fixed and removable prosthodontics, need to have a high level of accuracy in order to provide good quality, long lasting restorations. This webinar will explore the development of silicone impression materials, their biomaterial properties and how to correctly perform the most widely used impression techniques. Common challenges, including accuracy of fit, improving marginal adaption, reducing the incidence of costly remakes and the reduction in chairside fit times, will also be discussed.
We know that removal of hard and soft deposits is important in healing periodontal disease. If periodontal disease contributes to the overall inflammatory load, are we doing enough to reduce inflammation in our treatments? This CE webinar will try to answer that and other questions in the ongoing quest for full understanding of inflammatory diseases. Many may be surprised at the low cost and low physiological impact new science is finding to reduce the inflammatory load and heal pockets and bleeding.
Endodontics is one area where the use of technology has made the diagnosis and procedure easier for the dentist. In this CE webinar we will examine pulpal diagnosis with an emphasis on the use of a tooth vitality tester. After locating canals the use of an apex locator makes the instrumentation more efficient and reduces radiation to the patient.
This CE webinar will review the current local anesthetic agents available for use and discuss indications for the various agents. Procedures to minimize discomfort of injection will be discussed. Anatomic and pharmacological failures will also be reviewed including a review of dealing with areas of acute infection.
Is it time to increase pay in your practice? According to PayScale.com, 88% of employers set their sights on increasing pay this calendar year.

3. Exposure to sample cases where pre-prosthetic orthodontics was employed to improve outcomes.
Everyone is talking about the conundrum that three generations in the workplace is creating. While the generalizations are many and certainly not always accurate, in working with hundreds of dental practices, there’s no denying that we are witnessing a clear shift in priorities and career philosophies as Gen Xers (born 1965-1980), and Millennials (born 1981-2000) take their places alongside Boomers (born 1946-1964). In this CE webinar, learn how to manage those differences and understand how each generation brings its strengths and weaknesses.
