Remineralization used to be as simple as "put some fluoride on it!" But is the array of products available today claiming “remineralization” pushing the limits of oral healthcare? In a clinical world of dry mouth and acidic beverages, perhaps we’re putting too much faith in an antiquated understanding of what happens on the surface of a tooth. The science of reversing demineralization can be summarized easily, but clinicians would be wise to realize it takes more than an electronegative anion to rebuild the strongest biological substance on earth. How far can we push chemistry before accepting biochemistry makes more sense, and what could go horribly wrong? ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

Part eight of the webinar series "Learning From Our Mistakes" will take you through Dr. Milnar's experience of using flowable composite to improve patient satisfaction and profitability. Worn dentition is a common issue among patients as early as age 50, usually due to erosion over time, but it can also affect younger patients due to clenching, grinding, and poor alignment. Dr. Milnar will introduce a flowable composite that maintains strength, has bioactive properties, and is very reasonably priced. By using high-quality and user-friendly restorative products, dentists can avoid mistakes and provide patients with aesthetically pleasing and healthy outcomes. This CE webinar is essential for enhancing your skill set and learning a simple procedure to generate additional income from patients already in your chair.

Providing same day dentistry is rapidly becoming the standard of care and, to be honest, it helps achieve a high level of predictability and profitability in private practice. Understanding the diversity in scanners and scanning techniques, material choices and digital workflow can still be quite challenging even for the more experienced digital dentist. More importantly, clinicians need to understand how to unlock the power of same day dentistry to increase their profitability while decreasing their chair time requirements and unpredictability of deliverables ultimately improving their return on investment. This CE webinar will share practical information of how same day dentistry plays an integral part in a practice and its best uses of application. Discussion will be considered for the restorative workflow and material selections. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

Bioactive materials have been advancing patient care for over a decade, yet many clinicians are unaware of the positive impact they can provide to daily patient outcomes, keeping the materials in a "Golden Box" only to be used in special situations. Bioactive dental materials are indicated and appropriate to use in most restorative scenarios. When used properly, they ensure quality, long lasting restorations for our patients. This CE webinar invites you to rethink your caries management practices by combining patient centricity and practice efficiency for a patient-practice win-win.

Health inequities persist for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Individuals with developmental disabilities experience poorer oral health and challenges accessing dental care. Historically, dental curriculum did not require training dental professionals on how to care for and manage treatment of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Providers often report feeling unprepared to care for this population. This course will evaluate the current barriers to care, identify complex factors contributing to oral health and equip the dental provider with strategies to improve patient care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Silver diamine fluoride has been used internationally for decades due to its antimicrobial and desensitizing properties. This therapeutic agent has only become available in the Unites States in the recent years and there is a lot of unclarity surrounding its use. As clinicians, it is vital for us to fully understand its benefits and embrace its usage as it can help us better care for our patients. In this CE webinar, we will discuss the mechanisms of action behind SDF, describing how and why it works as a desensitizer and a caries arrest agent. We will outline the best ways you can incorporate it into your treatment protocol and discuss the unique benefits it provides to patients of all ages, including children where SDF is used commonly, and adults where this tool is underutilized.

Most dentists still think of composite as filling material that should be packed into boxy preps, cured in layers and used at room temperature. Today there is scientific evidence that is the wrong way to use composite. Injection molding techniques that can wrap around the preparations are possible by using heated multi-viscosity resins. You will discover the benefits and available options for various warming techniques.
