We have been misled to believe that being 'busy' is a sign of a productive dental practice. While this may have held true in the elder years of traditional general dentistry, this no longer holds true in 2022 and beyond. The modern general dentist has more technology available to them and a greater skillset than ever before. This combination of technology and advanced skillset require a different business approach to achieve the dentists potential. In this CE webinar, Dr. Agarwal will share how to leverage 3D Imaging to improve diagnosis, increase patient case acceptance, and expand the general dentists skillset.

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.

While dental material and techniques have continued to improve, the options facing dentists when choosing adhesives and cements have increased to the point where making decisions can often be confusing. This CE webinar will discuss the different generations of adhesives, (including the new universal adhesives), total-etch, self-etch, and selective etch techniques, and how and when to use them clinically in an effort to simplify and help clear up some of the confusion. In addition, this webinar will discuss conventional cementation vs. adhesive resin cementation, resin-modified glass ionomer, self-adhesive resin, ion releasing, and light-cure and dual cure adhesive resin cements. Lastly clinical cases will be shown to demonstrate the use of these adhesives and cements including the proper protocols for treating the tooth and the restoration when adhesively bonding either glass ceramics like lithium disilicate or zirconia.
