The Paediatric Dentition
6.5 CPD Hours | FULLY BOOKED | Advanced management techniques for carious and hypomineralised molars in children... Despite advances in preventive dentistry, dental caries is increasing in children. In addition, the prevalence of developmental defects of tooth structure (enamel hypomineralisation and hypoplasia) in young children is increasing in general dental practice. Management of the pulpally involved or severely compromised primary tooth poses considerable challenges for clinicians providing care of the child patient. Vital pulp therapy and stainless steel crowns are proven, dependable and efficient treatment options in the primary dentition as a means of maintaining the tooth and space for the permanent successor, whilst minimising the need for re-treatment. Case selection through appropriate diagnosis is essential to the long-term success of the procedures. In some cases, it may be appropriate to extract a primary tooth. We will discuss the reasons it may be preferable to extract a tooth and the options for space management. These options will include practical demonstrations and hands-on experience with the construction of a chairside space maintainer.  Stainless steel crowns may be indicated in permanent molars when there has been enamel hypomineralisation, significant breakdown of the crown and pulpal sensitivity. The procedure is more complex than for primary crowns but the results are again reliable and predictable. Restoration with stainless steel crowns can provide an effective interim restoration with a view to considering planned extractions at the appropriate developmental stage.  ...

Advanced Orthodontic Biomechanics & Treatment Solutions
6.5 CPD Hours | The Stuff You Have to Know!... Advanced Orthodontic Biomechanics is an ongoing orthodontic lecture series primarily designed to answer specific orthodontic treatment questions. As has been the case for the past few years, the course contents for this orthodontic seminar are based on questions and topics submitted from the previous year’s participants.  The surveys from these groups result in numerous requests to answer specific questions regarding specific treatment problems and Eric has grouped these together in order of the most requested items. Dr Lowenhaupt will will be presenting more cases under the category of "Why did this not work?" as well as cases entitled "How could this be done better?" Some of the most popular/frequent subjects were; Tips for dealing with ankylosed deciduous teeth Treatment sequence for impacted cuspids ‘Thin-slicing’ missing upper lateral incisor cases Another common request had to do with extraction cases and more specifically which teeth to take out and when (including management of congenitally missing teeth in extraction cases). Other questions related to changes in aligner treatment and technology, use of elastics during finishing and simple solutions for minimal relapse cases where things didn’t work out as planned. Additionally, there was the request to see more tips on practice management and inventory challenges for the non-specialist office. So this online lecture will seek to address these items (including answering many of the specific questions that were asked).   Multiple cases will be utilized to demonstrate various aspects of mechanics and treatment modalities with particular interest paid to the best available ‘evidenced-based information’. Additionally, multiple treatment ‘pearls’ will be shown to make your practice easier and more efficient. ...

Conservative Management of the Worn Dentition - Including Injection Moulding Restorative Techniques
6.5 CPD Hours | *COURSE UPDATE* Conservative Management of the Worn Dentition - Including Injection Moulding Restorative Techniques  THURSDAY 22 OCTOBER 2020 - VIRTUAL PRESENTER 9:00AM - 1:30PM - 4 CPD Hours Professor Ian Meyers will join us via video link at the ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development for this virtual presentation from his dental studio in Brisbane. Although virtual, the sessions will be fully interactive. You’ll still have the opportunity to directly discuss the topic with Professor Meyers, watch demonstrations live, and receive immediate feedback on the hands-on simulation exercises you’ll carry out. Reduced pricing for 22 October. This virtual presentation will only apply for the 22 October 2020 date. ------------------------------------- What strategies are required as patients and their restored dentitions age? Restoration of an extensively worn or badly broken down dentition can be complex, costly and Time consuming to implement. Because of its complexity and cost, this treatment is often delayed until it becomes essential. Dentists (and patients!) want to stop the repeat restoration cycle and its ongoing costly restorative burden. So how do we treat the patient with a severely broken down dentition? Through lectures, clinical demonstrations and participation exercises, Professor Meyers will present four steps to restorative success: Clinical evaluation of patients Review of a number of patient cases  Risk assessment tools Impact of patient’s health and lifestyle  Correct treatment planning prior to restoration Oral environment How dry mouth and salivary acidity correlates with severe tooth wear and non-carious tooth surface loss Examination requirements, salivary analysis and remineralisation strategies Stabilisation of the oral environment and risk reduction prior to restoration New materials and techniques How to evaluate the range of materials and techniques available for cost-effective and conservative management and aesthetics Step by step procedures (using a range of materials) to allow participants to compare the various materials and techniques for direct and semi-direct restorations Practical experience Demonstration and participant simulation exercises covering techniques for the restoration of the worn dentition; including direct restorative techniques, laboratory procedures, direct, semi-direct and indirect adhesive technologies ...

Alternatives to Crowns
6.5 CPD Hours | The Indirect-Direct Composite Restoration... A patient presents to your practice requiring urgent attention for a fractured molar. Secretly, you hope that the tooth will require a crown, but instead find that the tooth is largely intact and perhaps should be treated with a large direct composite. Disheartened at not being able to do a more complex and profitable procedure, you resign yourself to the mundane of a “533”. Whilst this is of course being a little cheeky with the reality of such a situation, it is true that larger composites are very hard to do, and you would prefer to do a crown. But when your clinical judgment tells you that the tooth does not really need a full coverage crown, what is the alternative? Too often this is the thought process we go through when in fact the present technologies and techniques available to us make this an exciting opportunity to practice minimal intervention, bio-mimetic dentistry. And with no laboratory fee, these procedures are profitable! This tooth does not require a filling, it is crying out for an adhesive, reinforcing, aesthetic reconstruction in composite resin! During this lecture program, you will learn about the latest advancements in dentine bonding agents and ultra-low shrinkage composite resins. See how these materials can be implemented into your practice, bringing with them the benefits of lower polymerisation shrinkage and decreased stresses to the tooth. Post-operative sensitivity can be resigned to the past and these technologies will help to further improve the prognosis of the tooth and the longevity of these conservative restorations. In this presentation, you will see how these principles can be applied to anterior and posterior restorations. ...

All-Ceramic Crowns and Veneers in the Aesthetic Practice
12.0 CPD Hours | In the modern age of patients demanding more aesthetic and natural looking restorations, this two day course covers the use of ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers, onlays and crowns) from treatment planning to preparation and cementation. A thorough clinical assessment with comprehensive planning of the patient will be emphasised with the use of diagnostic waxups in the workup of anterior restorations. Understanding the principles of smile design and communicating with patients will be emphasised and allow the practitioner the confidence to plan cases predictably. The myriad of different ceramics available will be discussed with their indications and alternative approaches to their implementation. Preparation and provisionalistion techniques will be practiced within an intensive hands-on workshop and participants will be expected to complete multiple preparation of porcelain veneers, onlays and crowns.  With the evolution of different ceramics, it has made the area of cementation somewhat confusing with questions being asked… “do I need to cement this or should I bond this?” Different cementation techniques from conventional, self-adhesive to adhesive bonding will be explained and simplified with an outline when each technique is indicated. Participants will practice what is sometimes a stressful procedure, the adhesive cementation of veneers, with useful tips and hints that will make this less nerve wracking! ...

Practical Radiography in Dental Practice
6.5 CPD Hours | Accurate radiographs are essential to make a correct diagnosis, deliver positive treatment outcomes, assess long-term results and provide medico-legal protection. This course will look at the opportunities and challenges of 2D and 3D imaging. Conventional 2D images remain the mainstay of dental treatment with film, digital sensors or phosphor plate options. Digital systems used correctly reduce radiation exposure and the need for manual processing of traditional film. This course will use two holders that operate across all 2D platforms and give you the results you need and want, including perhaps the most difficult requirement, taking an accurate and repeatable endodontic image with rubber dam in place. The objective of the 2D part of the course is to demonstrate simple clinical techniques to achieve this aim for all teeth and under all clinical situations. The 2D discussion will also include techniques and interpretation of OPG images.  3D or CBCT imaging is the most exciting development in dental radiology today. This part of the course will stress the advances in diagnosis and treatment planning that CBCT provides. Learn how to interpret CBCT images and use generic imaging software to its maximum advantage. Emphasis will be placed on recognising the difference between artifacts and pathological conditions and understanding the medical implications of 3D imaging.  2020 Testimonials "Steve and Pete are very knowledgeable and make the topics very easy to understand. One of the best courses I have done with ADA NSW" – 27 August 2020 “Well organised course, very easy to understand" – 27 August 2020   ...

Basic Orthodontics for Paediatric and General Dentist
13.0 CPD Hours | Paediatric and General Dental specialists are often curious if they would enjoy offering orthodontic treatment to selected patients in their practices.  In today’s competitive practice environment, the practitioner is often overwhelmed by the types and number of different orthodontic courses available. In order to be effective in achieving ideal results for your patients the modern practitioner must be knowledgeable and experienced in all facets of dentistry.   In orthodontics it is important to understand details of differential diagnosis, prognosis, treatment planning, treatment options, biomechanics and retention.  Many orthodontic cases can be treated by the non-specialist and many should only be treated by the specialist. By functioning together with the specialist for the good of the patient we can look forward to achieving fine results for our patient’s families. In practice on a daily basis, paediatric and general dentists encounter patient conditions including anterior and posterior cross- bites, ectopic eruption, crowding, Class II & III malocclusions, missing teeth and aesthetic situations. This two-day Introductory Orthodontics Course is specifically designed for the paediatric and general dentist looking for a sophisticated, evidence based yet clinical approach for orthodontic treatment.  Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment options, treatment mechanics, retention design, trouble-shooting and evaluation of chief complaints.  This course is not designed to give the participant the ability to treat any and all cases but rather is tailored to giving the participant insight into the possibilities of incorporating orthodontic services into their practices and what that might entail. ...
