Over the last few years much has changed in healthcare. Because we have been naturally overwhelmed by pandemic news, newly published research on the importance of the oral gateway microbiome in systemic health was scarcely noticed. In addition, oral health professionals found that our preventive care protocols needed substantial updating. Many patients had significant dental issues during the “lock-down” and our practices are still catching up on delayed dental treatment. Fortunately, improved dental biological materials that are kind to the pulp, with the potential to stimulate reparative dentin by providing calcium ions and an alkaline environment, are commercially available. In addition, bulk fill resin based composite restorative increase dentists’ efficiency and improve clinical outcomes. Universal adhesives provide for consistent and reliable bond strengths. Hence, the future for oral healthcare professionals appears optimistically bright. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

View Full Description »
Historically, dental materials have been designed to be passive. They are considered successful if they do not interact with or harm the surrounding tissue. Thus, these materials are deemed to be biocompatible. In recent years, with the development of bioactive materials with impressive capabilities, this has started to change. A shift in thinking and a desire to do better for our patients has given rise to the era of bioactive dental materials. Bioactive materials are by design, interactive with a patient’s tooth structure and help to stimulate and mimic the remineralization process that takes place in nature. This CE webinar will review the science behind bioactive dental materials as well as practical uses for bioactive dental materials in everyday practice.

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.
