Join us for a CE webinar on the impact of orthodontic treatment on overall health. Discover how improved oral hygiene through orthodontic treatment can lead to better overall health, as research has linked gum disease to conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. We will also explore the frequently overlooked findings that can be treated with orthodontic therapies and the role of orthodontics in improving oral hygiene.
Today, there are a multitude of different materials to choose from in CAD/CAM dentistry. A fully crystallized Lithium Disilicate block is a material that is time efficient, esthetic, precise, and cost effective. In this CE webinar, we will discuss how to choose the right block for your patient in order to create an esthetic outcome with long term success, while saving chair time. Attendees will learn how to create life-like natural restorations that do not have to be fired in a single visit.
The cornerstone for dental treatment is to prevent or control infection leading to dental disease. According to the World Health Organization most oral health conditions are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages. For patients to achieve successful long-term results, it is imperative they receive a customized home care plan that focuses on continued biofilm removal for reduction of inflammation and staving off disease initiation and progression. This CE webinar will address current approaches for prevention that extend beyond the operatory. Dental professionals will walk away with a renewed confidence in their oral health care education sessions and product recommendations.
It seems as if it has never been more difficult to practice dentistry. Costs are up, reimbursements are down. Inflation, supply chain issues, and short staffing have made it harder than ever to be profitable. It is so important, now more than ever, that we work efficiently. This CE webinar will review strategies to increase our efficiency in both direct restorative dentistry in order to keep costs down with out sacrificing quality.
For most tooth-conserving clinicians and patients, the idea of cutting adjacent teeth for a fixed bridge is unimaginable, considering the collateral damage and possible side effects. Also, for most patients, a fixed implant is vastly more desirable than a removable partial denture. Nevertheless, after 30 years of using dental implants, astute professionals have learned that, in many cases, dental implants are neither less invasive nor free of problems. Due to advances in adhesives and a better understanding on how to use them, better porcelains and manufacturing techniques are making the next generation of bonded bridges predictable. In this CE webinar, Dr. Ruiz will share a variety of prep designs and uses, as well as step-by-step techniques for temporizing and bonding and the latest research on successful zirconia and porcelain adhesion techniques.
How to effectively make your patients’ fear and anxiety lessen with a single-visit replacement solution. During these challenging times upon us, avoiding multiple dental visits is beneficial to everyone and with a single designed and navigated 3D guided surgical procedure. Much more can now be accomplished within just one visit. Come join us LIVE and see exactly how to execute this beneficial procedure in one single visit using piezoelectric technology for atraumatic extractions and digital guide design for immediate implant placement.
According to statistics from the American Dental Association, general practitioners perform more than 50% of all periodontal surgeries, almost half of all bony surgical extractions and 40% of all apicoectomies and root amputations – yet only 17% of all biopsies. Why is that? Performing a soft tissue biopsy is a much simpler procedure than any of the other procedures listed above. Unfortunately, many dentists do not learn how to perform a biopsy. The purpose of this CE webinar is to provide the dentist with a simple step-by-step protocol to perform soft tissue biopsies – with tools that you already have in your office! The discussion will conclude with a discussion of how to bill insurance companies for both the biopsy and for the pathology report.

You’d be hard-pressed to go a week these days without hearing about another tech company launching their latest version of AI-powered tools. For the companies that are driving innovation in dentistry, that day has already come. More and more virtual monitoring systems–some leveraging new AI technology to detect tooth movement and hygiene issues–are coming to market which are drastically improving how providers are able to effectively treat their clear aligner patients. How do they work? Can a photo of teeth really be more accurate than seeing them in person? Forget everything you know about the optimal way to keep cases on track and provide ongoing care for your clear aligner patients. This CE webinar can’t be missed.
The majority of implants placed today are done in a 3 stage process from extraction to final seating of the restoration taking 8 months to a year. This CE webinar will focus on a new concept allowing the practitioner to plan and have everything available to be All-In-One with everything needed to extract a tooth, place an immediate implant and possibly place a final abutment with custom loaded temporary in one appointment. We will focus on the scientific concepts and preplanning to make this happen.
“OH NO! Not that one again!” After all your training, and years of hard work and tremendous sacrifice, don’t you just hate it when you get those heart wrenching questions and resistance to case acceptance over and over again? Your team and you work so hard, and care so deeply, so why is it that often our patients don’t ask for optimal care and enthusiastically accept our treatment plans?
All too often, we are faced with essential decisions regarding how best to restore a root canaled tooth that has lost the majority of its tooth structure.

We will dive into when to place a post or maybe two or maybe three and when it’s best just to rebuild with a great core buildup. This CE webinar will take you through the thought process, the research, and the clinical steps to ensure for long term success. If you like to say bye-bye to teeth before their time is up, this course is not for you!
There are so many different direct restoration restorative materials available that it often gets overwhelming as to what one should buy or use.

You’ll learn about products that offer your patients sensitivity relief, greater fluoride protection, and the prevention of white spot lesions.
This CE webinar will take the participants through the steps required to facilitate predictable, profitable implant dentistry. Beginning with a tooth in place, the dentist/dental team must have a vision for maintaining or rebuilding the alveolar structure. Sufficient quantity, quality and location of bone and keratinized tissue are required to optimize function and form around dental implants and their associated restorations. This CE webinar will detail the steps involved in obtaining predictable implant-supported restorations.
