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....

The Paediatric Dentition
6.5 CPD Hours | 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. ...

Visit our  FAQ’s  page for more information.   We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. A hands-on workshop in developing, presenting and implementing treatment plans for moderately complex cases in general practice Treatment planning plays an essential role in gaining valid informed consent. It is a skill that challenges many dentists in private practice by posing difficulties with both clinical and administrative case management. Too often the time constraints of a busy practice rather than case needs determine how much (or little) treatment planning is done. This course is aimed at general dentists wanting to improve their case management skills of moderately complex cases by developing and implementing a consistent treatment planning processes. Participants will be guided through an easily implemented, structured process to develop and present treatment plans for their patients. On completion they will have a “take home” framework along with supporting resources to efficiently treatment plan in everyday practice....

The Basics of Clinical Photography
6.5 CPD Hours | An introductory course for beginners... Clinical photography is not just about beautiful white teeth or cosmetic artistry. It is should encompass the whole spectrum of dental care from damage and disease through treatment to review and monitoring. With today’s digital technology every dentist can chronicle photographically what they see in the mouth, whether for general records or whenever the situation warrants photographic documentation. The closest thing to what we see through our loupes is a photograph and this can actually reflect the reality of the mouth. X-rays do not show failing restorations, crack lines and wear patterns; notes cannot always clearly indicate the sequence of events in a clinical session; study models poorly represent the restored nature of teeth and the health of soft tissues. The routine use of digital clinical  photography augments charting, notes and x-rays. It significantly enhances record-taking, validates clinical decisions and provide an impressive tool for patient education and practice marketing. Attendees will see reviews of all types of cameras and the armamentarium and accessories required to take extra and intra-oral pictures. People easily comprehend visual data and this course will show instant quality images can dramatically improve patient understanding and acceptance of treatment recommendations. Attendees will be able to use four different recommended camera systems during the practical sessions, as well as ensuring their own cameras are fit for purpose. This course will be an invaluable experience for general dentists and specialists and will be useful for general photography as well. ...

Conservative Management of the Worn Dentition - Including Injection Moulding Restorative Techniques
6.5 CPD Hours | 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 ...

Healthy Teeth for Longer Life
6.5 CPD Hours | Riding the Silver Wave... It is acknowledged that our population is ageing and keeping their natural teeth longer, and along with this there is an increasing expectation by patients that they will retain their natural dentition into their senior years. Unfortunately the presenting dentition and oral environment in some older adults is frequently sub-optimal. Consequently a range of adaptable oral health management strategies are required to help address the various dental demands and clinical situations. Individualised restorative management protocols that provide pragmatic outcomes and take into consideration the persons abilities and tolerance, and may need to be less invasive and less costly, are frequently required. This presentation will focus on the preservation and restoration of tooth structure and how in general dental practice we can assist our patients to retain, and where necessary, restore their teeth to ensure an ongoing healthy, functional and aesthetic dentition. A range of traditional, and not so traditional, approaches to restorative management of the ageing dentition will be presented and discussed, and will demonstrate that contrary to popular belief, minimally invasive conservative restorative management can demonstrate good aesthetic and functional longevity. The ultimate goal is to optimise oral and dental health, and thereby enhance overall general health, and enable the elderly to enjoy living a healthy, happy, dignifi ed and active independent life while ensuring long-term sustainability of the dentition....

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....
