Advanced Orthodontics
13.0 CPD Hours | Orthodontic Biomechanics and Treatment Solutions... 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 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; When to distalize and when to extract?? Treatment sequence for deep bite and open bite patients. 'Thin-slicing’ orthodontic treatment solutions for congenitally missing teeth.   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 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. ...

Practical Radiography in Dental Practice
7.0 CPD Hours | 4 Places Left | 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. Testimonials from 2020 Attendees "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" “Well organised course, very easy to understand"   ...

Conservative Management of the Severely Worn Dentition
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 several patient cases  Risk assessment tools Impact of patient’s health and lifestyle  Correct treatment planning before 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 before 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 ...
