Course Descriptions & Times
Lecture #1: 7:00pm-7:30pm
Why Zirconia Crowns fail & how to avoid it
A dentist and laboratory perspective on why zirconia crowns fail intraorally and in the laboratory. We will debate the material science of zirconia with a comparison to natural dentition and other leading restorative materials. The best practice of bonding techniques and steps to prepare the crowns will be illustrated. Karsten Klimmek will explain the importance of correct prep design, the possible failures, sandblasting, tinting of zirconia, staining techniques and best techniques to cut off crowns intraorally in case of failures.
Zirconia material science, wear on opposing dentin, finishing methods extra and intraorally.
Best methods of bonding and cementing. Errors during manufacturing and how to avoid them.
Errors during bonding and how to avoid them. Preparation design for best outcome of material strength.
Lecture #2: 7:30pm-8:00pm
6 Easy Steps to Case Acceptance
Case Acceptance is the lifeblood of a restorative practice. Getting more patients to want what we know they need is critical to success. Mark Murphy will provide an entertaining program full of useful tips and ideas that you can use right away. By utilizing excellent communication skills and scripts.
Choose behaviors and communications that support better patient education and choice.
Develop a more co-discovery, curiosity inducing new patient examination experience.
Lecture #3: 8:00pm-8:30pm
Smileloc® by RODO®: Screw-less, Cementless & Retrievable
You will gain an understanding of the system to have conversations with your patients about current unmet Clinical needs. You will be able to identify implant cases that could be restored using the Smileloc by RODO system. Those might include single pre-molars and molars as well as bridges in all combinations using the regular, narrow and wide Ti-Coping.
Unmet Clinical needs
Mesio – Distal space suggestions
Applying the SmileLoc onto the abutments using the SmileLoc seater
Retrieving the reconstruction using the Induction device
Lecture #4: 8:30pm-9:00pm
30 Minute Airway/Occlusion Update
This current evidence-based review of examination, diagnosis, airway and treatment will emphasize how to evaluate and apply risk assessment and easily communicate with your patients. It will help you stay current with the American Academy of Prosthodontics guidelines and ADA resolutions. Mark Murphy will explore with you the basic screening for the role of occlusion and airway in treatment planning. The focus will be on developing risk assessment skills that you can use right away in restoring your patients.
Help the participant develop a risk assessment protocol regarding occlusion in restorative care.
Strengthen the participants understanding of current treatment protocol.
Provide a splint therapy matrix for decision making.
