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.

This CE webinar is designed to expand your clinical knowledge of innovative products that offer more preventative options. If you’re tired of seeing patients come back with caries (and we all know they’re tired of the pain and inconvenience), learn how to stop the caries cycle using more non-invasive treatments. Glass Ionomer sealants are not just for public health patients. They are not only proven effective, but they can be applied in even the most difficult situations because there are no bonding agents or isolation necessary. You’ll not only be treating vulnerable sites and patients, but the slow release of fluoride will keep protecting them between visits. You’ll learn about products that offer your patients sensitivity relief, greater fluoride protection, and the prevention of white spot lesions. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

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 )

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.

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. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

In this CE webinar, we will review digital and analog shading techniques for direct and indirect restorations. The need to blend as well as maximize bond strength drives modifications in both preparation approach and material depending on the intra-arch and intra-tooth position and size.

Substance abuse is at an all-time “high” in this country with an estimated 1 out of every 10 Americans addicted to prescription or illicit drugs. As dental professionals, we must awaken to the reality that many of our patients have substance-use disorders and that our examination findings of advanced caries, severe hyposalivation, and poor plaque control are often the effects of depressant, stimulant, and opioid abuse. In this CE webinar, learn how to recognize the clues of substance abuse from a routine dental examination, discuss your concerns and suspicions with patients, develop and deliver safe and effective dental treatment, and manage pain with non-opioid medications. *Note: Course content does not include marijuana ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )
