Presentations:

 

Dental Implant Complications and Failures

David Ehsan, MD, DDS

Reconstruction of the Endodontically Treated Tooth: Current Concepts

Patrick Roetzer, DDS

 

Are you confident in your endodontic post/core treatments? When faced with a great root system and great endodontic condition, but badly compromised coronal portion, do you restore or extract? This lecture will help you shorten the time for reconstructions and produce excellent, evidence-based results.

 

You Will Learn:

  • Indications for posts
  • Available posts; strengths and weaknesses
  • Adhesives and their applications
  • Surface preparations for adhesives
  • Core materials
  • Techniques to assure bubble free intra-canal core application
  • Post removal
  • Endocrowns
  • CAD/CAM applications
  • Ferrules, dimensions, and locations

 

Composite Advances: Universal, Bulk Fill, Bioactive Materials and their Applications

Patrick Roetzer, DDS

 

Would you like to be able to complete difficult posterior composites in less time than you did large amalgams? Do certain situations tempt you to place alloy over composite: dry versus wet field? Are your anterior composites as good as they can be? This lecture will provide clear information on the most recent materials and techniques to use in your practice.

 

You Will Learn:

  • Indications for each category
  • Demystifying the constituents of composite
  • Particle size: how does it affect performance
  • Adhesives: light cure; auto-cure; dual cure
  • Matricing for perfection
  • Additive versus subtractive techniques
