Format: Webinar
Fee: $5.00

DE Study Club Archived Presentation

As the techniques for placement and restoration have become more refined, so too has the techniques involved in tooth extraction. Because the biology of the post extraction socket is resorptive, various graft materials have been developed to try to preserve bone and soft tissue architecture. In addition, careful extraction techniques have  been developed that allow preservation of bone socket structure. When tissue volume is lost, compromises in implant therapy may occur. This webinar discusses techniques, graft material, and instrument selection that can optimize tissue preservation.

Impressions are an integral part of restoring implants, be it a fixed or removable prosthesis.

An accurate impression not only determines how the prosthesis fits the implants intraorally, but can affect bone stability long-term. The webinar will review how to improve implant impressions for an ideal passive fit, as well as when to use open tray verses closed tray techniques.

Creating a sustainable career and reducing the risk for injuries is on the minds of many. Just like any job, there are inherent physical risks in the clinical setting.

It’s overwhelming to sort through all of the options that contribute to a safer workspace. Applying basic ergonomic principles simplifies the process of selecting equipment that supports neutral, healthy body postures.

Efficient Workflow with Handheld Portable X-ray Systems
Faculty: Joseph A. Blaes, DDS
Expiration Date: September 01, 2018
Credits: 1
Format: Webinar
Fee: $5.00

DE Study Club Archived Presentation

A revolution in the design of dental office space has occurred. It is no longer necessary to have the placement of your x-ray head on the wall dictate your dental office design. The age of cordless portable hand-held x-ray system is now. Handheld Portable X-ray Systems are the best new dental product on the market today. As far back as I can remember, one of the first questions asked about a new office was where to place the X-Ray. This was always the key to the setup of the treatment room. The X-ray head had to be able to reach the chair. How many times have you had to change the position of the chair or sit the patient upright because the arm would not reach far enough. How many radiographs were ruined because the arm or the head or the patient moved after you left the room to expose the film. The Handheld Portable X-ray Systems solves all of these problems because it is totally portable! It is a hand held unit so you do not have to change the patient’s position to take an X-ray. This allows you to stay with your patient through the entire X-ray process. No more position the sensor, walk out, expose, walk back and repeat – a lot of wasted motion. The Handheld Portable X-ray System will serve 2 to 3 treatment rooms and can go anywhere in the office so any room can be an X-ray room. Experience new freedom and efficiency!

As clinicians, we are often faced with decisions to determine which products or instruments are best for our practice and our patient’s needs. There is a lot of information to sort through to make solid, evidence-based choices regarding which items are best for each situation. During this presentation, I will introduce the Rockwell Hardness Scale and describe how this quantifiable measurement can be used to determine if the implant maintenance instrument being used in clinical practice is truly safe against scratching the surfaces of the implant restorations being cleaned. With this data, one can make an educated decision regarding if their instrument of choice is too hard, too soft, or just right for successful dental implant maintenance.
