Anterior Discolorations: Resin Infiltration and Microabrasion – When, Where, and How
Presenter: Dr. Nathaniel Lawson and Dr. Augusto Robles

Surface and sub-surface enamel discolorations may bring a patient into the office for esthetic treatment. Traditional treatment for these lesions could involve composite resins or ceramic veneers. More conservative options are available for removing minimal tooth structure that do not involve bonding restorative materials which need to be replaced over time. Microabrasion is a technique which removes up to 100 microns of the outer layer of enamel. Resin infiltration is a new technique which removes some of the outer layer of enamel and then infiltrates an unfilled resin into the space. This CE webinar will describe both techniques and how to use them in combination.


Flowable Composite Resin in a Variety of Clinical Applications Pediatric Dentistry for the General Dentist

Flowable composite resins have long since been used effectively in preventative and restorative pediatric dentistry. But until now their use has been generally limited to sealants and liners. Recent improvements in mechanical properties and availability of different viscosities have changed how we view and use flowable resins. We now have many different flowables with different properties to choose from. Specifically, variations in viscosity lead to different clinical indications. We can now match appropriate viscosity and delivery to appropriate clinical scenario. As a result, flowable resins have a newly increased versatility and usefulness for different restorative situations. This CE webinar will walk through the advantages of different viscosity flowable resins and their indications for use with your pediatric patients. We will study several different clinical cases and choices of material for most effective and efficient use of our materials to best serve our patients.

Ceramics for chairside dentistry continue to change. With these changes in materials and processing techniques, the applications of ceramics have expanded. Speed, toughness, strength, load bearing, esthetics, and handling are all important factors when selecting a material. This CE webinar covers an understanding of what is presently available along with how these materials are tested and how those properties relate clinically can greatly assist a dentist on determining what ceramics could be used for which applications.


Optimal Dental Materials for Group and Solo Practices in a Post-Covid World

The list of issues facing dental practices is far and wide ranging from overhead problems to those created by technology. Post-COVID issues are; patient accumulation and attrition, growing practice revenue in an ever-increasingly competitive environment, and technology advancements that include materials that require monitoring and updating. By keeping on top of the following, your practice can take these challenges head on before they become obstacles in the way of success. Patients are living longer so the dental profession now must assist patients in maintaining their dental health throughout their long lives. This CE webinar will address how dental providers can be proactive in their patient’s dental health, use healthy individualized materials, and incorporate new materials and technologies to increase their revenue.


Aerosol Containment Beyond SARS-CoV-2

The COVID-19 pandemic certainly captured the attention of the dental profession and regulatory agencies regarding the airborne transmissibility of many diseases. While aerosol mitigation has always been considered important, COVID-19 has lifted the value on how aerosol mitigation must be a priority. As we now know, aerosol containment has been a critical element in controlling the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 in dental treatment facilities. Did we simply assume that we were safe prior to the pandemic? This CE webinar will look at the use of high volume evacuation and how to maximize its use to continue to prevent the spread of airborne diseases through aerosols.


Featured On-Demand CE Webinars






Bonding to Zirconia
Presenter: Dr. Nathaniel Lawson
Sponsor: Bisco
CE Credits: 1 CEU (Self-Study)
View Full Description »
You don't always need to bond to zirconia, but when you do, it's good to know how. The steps for bonding to zirconia are different than those for glass ceramics. We will review these steps, the evidence for performing these steps, and the little details of performing these steps. By the end of the CE webinar, the participant should have a straightforward protocol for bonding zirconia dental restorations.







Cementation and Modern Indirect Materials
Presenter: Dr. Lee Ann Brady
Sponsor: GC America
CE Credits: 1 CEU (Self-Study)
View Full Description »
Bonding all of our indirect restorations can pose several clinical dilemmas from anesthetizing the patient at the seat appointment to how we remove the restoration when it is time to be replaced. Our modern cements have evolved along with the indirect restorative materials that we use today, allowing us to take advantage of the benefits of cementation, optimal handling properties and clinical outcomes. In this CE webinar we will look at today's glass ionomer based cement systems as well as self adhesive cementation materials and techniques.
