The Game of Dentistry: Winning Big with a Whiteboard

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

In 2017, the dental world is full of excitement with all things related to
technology. There are meetings and whole multi-day events dedicated to dental
technology and promoting it’s use in the general practice. The main story on the
front cover of the September2017 issue of Dental Economics is “Evolution of
dental tech (don’t get left behind)”.
The technology available in dentistry is awesome – and so are the price tags!
Careful consideration of all the new technologies for incorporation into a general
practitioner’s office is definitely warranted. However, the latest figures from the
American Dental Association from 2015 show the average income for a general
dentist is $179,960. Before spending tens of thousands of dollars for technology,
it makes sense to boost the income of your practice first. This webinar will show
you how to do just that. Invest only tens of dollars in a low- tech whiteboard to
substantially boost the income of your practice!

Course Objectives

Discover how a simple whiteboard can be used as a powerful tool to:

  • Communicate your vision to your team.
  • Keep score and make work a game.
  • Efficiently control the clinical flow of your day.
  • Be a constant reminder of what a great purchase decision you made!

08.23.17 8:00 PM ET Endodontics William Nudera, DDS, MS Selective Root Retreatment: A Conservative Alternative

Selective Root Retreatment: A Conservative Alternative

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

Root canal retreatment is traditionally consider an “all or none” treatment approach. Meaning, all restorative and obturation material must be removed from the entire root canal space of all roots regardless of the individual periapical status. In contrast, surgical endodontics is not viewed as an “all or none” approach. It is a generally accepted that only the diseased root(s) should be addressed via root end resection androot end filling. Knowledge gained from CBCT imaging has introduced a new reasonable treatment option for endodontically treated teeth presenting with post treatment disease. This new concept allows the clinician to make predictable treatment decisions based on the periapical status of an individual root(s) rather than make assumptions about the tooth as a whole. A “selective root retreatment” combines the approach of an non-surgical retreatment with the selectivity of a surgical root resection.

Upon completion of this course, each participants should have a better understanding of the following:

- The current recommendations for root canal retreatment and associated risks.
- The conflict between the root canal retreatment model and the endodontic
surgical model.
- A literature based rationale justifying a more conservative approach to endodontic retreatment.
- The importance of CBCT imaging when determining the presence or absence of periapical pathosis.
- How to use the CBCT image to create a guided precision slot access designed to selectively treat one or more roots of a multi-rooted tooth diagnosed with post treatment disease.

We may be “over retreating” perviously root canal treated teeth that present with recurrent or persistent apical pathology. This presentation is designed to make a reasonable argument using our current “accepted evidence” and logical reasoning to defend the clinician’s choice to approach root canal retreatment in a different way. It is being suggested that retreatment could be limited to a single root or roots clearly demonstrating periapical pathology while leaving the root(s) with no visible or perceived pathology untouched.

Demystify Diagnosing & Treatment Planning Teeth with Root Resorption

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

Root resorption can be a real enigma when diagnosing and treatment planning. Depending on the location and
severity of the resorption, it can dramatically affect the prognosis of the case. There are several different types
of root resorption, but probably the most complicated resorption to manage is the invasive cervical root
resorption. These cases need to be properly assessed. The lines of communication between the different dental
specialties need to be maintained, since the management often necessitates an inter-disciplinary approach. This
course is designed to take the mystery out of diagnosing and treatment planning teeth with root resorption.
