Advanced Restorative Continuing Dental Education

Guided Implant Solutions for the Failing Dentition

  • Chesapeake, VA
Credits:
14
Tuition:
$4,600

Despite the tremendous advances in implant dentistry, we still see too many prostheses that are uncleansable, not functionally stable, or esthetically displeasing because implants weren’t placed in the proper position. Determining where the teeth need to be from a functional, phonetic and esthetic standpoint PRIOR to implant placement is the key to long-term success.In this class you will be working through thru two cases start-to-finish. Printed mandibles and maxillas of the actual patient and all of the diagnostic data will be provided. You will go through the process of treatment planning the case 3-dimensionally, relating the desired tooth position to the CBCT.

The Worn Dentition

  • Chesapeake, VA
Credits:
16
Tuition:
$4,600

One of the most important skills a restorative dentist can acquire is to know how and why to change the vertical dimension of occlusion and when it is appropriate to do it. Cases involving extreme wear, occlusal plane problems as well as alterations to the steepness of the anterior guidance are all cases we at The Dawson Academy show, and discuss. Yet the specific details of how to work through a case when all the teeth are prepared can be daunting. This two day, hands-on on class will take each participant through a step-by-step protocol that will go from preparations to delivery.
