Live Webinar-Meth Mouth: A State of Decay
With methamphetamine being the second most widely abused drug in the world, it is likely that you are treating patients who use methamphetamine and have “meth mouth”; teeth that are rotted, blackened, and broken. Many clinicians are not aware of the signs and symptoms of methamphetamine use, or the medical, legal, and ethical issues associated with treating the addicted patient. In this interactive webinar, discover why methamphetamine is the “hot” street drug and why users will give up their smile for a meth high. Learn how to recognize the oral, physical and behavioral clues of methamphetamine abuse and how to communicate your concerns to your patients. Learn how to treat patients with “meth mouth” effectively and safely and recognize your professional responsibilities and your own personal boundaries in treating the “addicted” patient.

Lights, Camera, Anterior Composites
With contemporary direct composite systems, now the clinician can truly be an artist by conservatively and esthetically creating restorations that are so life like that they virtually emulate the beauty of natural tooth structure. However, rehabilitating or enhancing a smile with direct composite resins can be a challenge. The task not only requires an understanding of the intricacies of shade selection, but also a mastery of replicating the uniqueness of natural tooth morphology and luster of the restoration.

Prescribing Opioids: 'With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility'
Dentists are in a tough place when it comes to pain. Whether pain is caused by infection, or our own procedures, patients expect us to relieve their pain. The more severe the pain, the quicker and more potent they want the solution to be. Narcotics can provide substantial pain relief, and when used judiciously on a case-by-case basis, they can be a valuable tool.
