A revolution has been occurring and it has some people pretty uncomfortable. In school we learned of ankyloglossia, the pictures showed a tongue that was completely tethered to the floor of the mouth. We were taught that if the patient can talk and eat there's no reason to "clip it." At the dawn of time infants who couldn't nurse because of ankyloglossia were left to perish. Those were brutal times! Since infant formula and bottles are so easy to use and children are nice and round, releasing ties has been relegated to the elective surgery discussions. What if that's wrong? Why is that wrong? The question of why that's wrong has been the life's work of Dr. Sarouch Zaghi. He is a protege of Dr. Christian Guilleminault, the father of sleep apnea who boldly set out to show that sleep apnea in non-obese children was a function of improper facial growth, lead by a lack of tongue mobility. Dr. Guilleminault set Dr. Zaghi onto the missing link in all of sleep architecture, the tongue. Today we know of new ways to actually measure the mobility of the tongue, when, why, and how to release the tongue and how important orofacial myofunctional therapy is to all of sleep, with or without a functional release.

The goal of every composite restorative material developed by manufacturers, is to become the synthetic restorative that best mimics natural tooth structure and be the most Biomimetic available. Materials can claim to be the “best” in one or more performance categories or testing protocols. However, the best material theoretically - will be the one that is “best” in the greatest number of those testing categories or properties. This CE webinar will detail and analyze the various “key” testing protocols used in manufacturing for the testing of composite materials. We will then explain the in-vivo, clinical value, of those tests and associated bar graphs. Additionally, we will discuss how these various performance indicators, impact the long-term marginal integrity of restorations. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

Preservational Prosthetic Strategies: Posterior Focus
Presenter: Dr. Clarence Tam
CE Supporter: VOCO America
Release Date: 9/1/22
Expiration Date: 9/1/25
CE Credits: 1 CEU (Self-Study)
View Full Description »
Posterior restoration success has much to do with the principles in primary anatomy that are often focused on and restricted to only anterior teeth. The art of layering posterior composites is not only a functional art, it reflects our desire to mimic nature in esthetics also in our practice of Bio-Emulation. Conversely, there are anatomical features of anterior teeth that are often neglected, just because they are out of direct frontal sight. When are teeth "too weak" for some restorative materials? How does one dial in the occlusion to maximize success using modern direct materials some never thought possible to use in extensive applications? How can we humanely and successfully place large restorations with a conservative slant in youngsters with massive structural deficits? What are the keys to success in posterior bonding besides esthetic? How do we minimize post-operative sensitivity and marginal leakage? How do we maximize shear bond strengths to the substrate, much of which is "unpredictable" dentin? We will review curing strategies for best long-term clinical success.

Expiration Date: 8/10/25

Dental material manufacturers tend to promote their respective materials using combinations of literature and various studies. Literature extols the physical properties of various materials, often using bar graph data to compare one competitor to another. The question is: what is the true importance of that “data” to “my dentistry?” This CE webinar will discuss the clinical significance of those bar graphs. Life behind bars will take the listener into the world of material design and testing and attempt to connect the data to where it matters - the clinical application of the material. Mr. Connell will speak to the testing parameters and value of the data presented, while Dr. Ron Kaminer will discuss the clinical implications of the data being discussed.
