Upcoming Event
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Live Webinar: Re-imagining the Future of Orthodontics with Clear Aligner Technique
Clear aligner treatment is now a proven orthodontic technique that is able to treat a wide range of malocclusions. This presentation will discuss differences in biomechanics between how fixed appliances and clear aligners move teeth. It will offer a perspective on how to evaluate different clear aligner systems and select a clear aligner system based on components of the system and the type of tooth movements required. An overview of clear aligner treatment will be given, including aligner innovations that are available to treat deep bite, open bite, Class II and premolar extraction cases with excellent clinical outcomes.
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Live Webinar: Not Your Typical Toothache
The common endodontic diagnosis of pulpal and periapical pathology can be quickly complicated by the additional findings of resorption, fractures, or combined endodontic-periodontal disease. This lecture will prepare clinicians with the evidence and skills necessary to both diagnose and manage the complicated endodontic disease. Clinicians will differentiate the heterogeneous group of entities that make up resorptive pathologies, including those without a pulpal source. Furthermore, clinicians will be able to recognize cracks and fractures and possess an evidence-based algorithm for their diagnosis and management. Finally, the diagnosis and management of the periodontal-endodontic disease will be discussed. Attendees will leave comfortable and confident in their skills in diagnosing those findings considered atypical in endodontics. This is the first time this course has been presented in the SF Bay Area and includes case presentations.
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
