Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is America’s leading health threat. None of us look forward to a heart attack, stroke, dementia or organ failure. But CVD affects 1 in 3 and soon to affect 1 in 2 Americans.
The treatment planning process can be the biggest challenge for any dentist. The goal of all treatment plans is to create long-term stability in the masticatory system regardless of how simple or complex a patient’s conditions present. However, the dilemmas that dentists face sometimes lead to restorative failure or patient dissatisfaction.
Splints are more than just a piece of plastic you give to patients when you don't know what else to do with them
Occlusal splint therapy can be a great treatment option for those suffering from occluso-muscle disorders and TMD. Given the wrong type of appliance, however, splint therapy can actually do more harm than good for our patients. With an improper or poorly fabricated device, patients can develop increased pain to the joint, an open bite and other serious implications.
Hear Dr. Peter Dawson revisit timeless principles that he has spent a career and lifetime in understanding and teaching to our profession. He also discusses his recently released autobiography A Better Way.
Dr. Barry Raphael discuss how many of our dental school and residency orthodoxies are now very different than what was taught. He'll turn your thinking about Sleep Dentistry around, too. Traditionally, in orthodontics we align the teeth first, set the occlusion, get the jaws to balance and match the joints, hope the muscles will follow the form, and see about the airway last (if at all).
In this webinar, Dr. Wilkerson uncovers the relationship between malocclusion and breathing disorders. Learn what to look for when screening for airway disorders, the result of leaving these disorders untreated and how they can result in malocclusions.
Wonder why some crowns break while others don't? Why a patient is experiencing pain, but it's difficult to pinpoint the source? Why some patients exhibit excessive wear?
During this course, Dr. Leonard Hess will uncover surprising (but common) reasons for clinical failures and a pathway to treatment predictability and patient satisfaction.
As Dr. Dawson has said, “Successful outcomes for patients with temporomandibular disorders can be some of the most rewarding experiences in a general dental practice.”
In a study of over 45,000 households, 1 in 5 have suffered from orofacial pain in the last 6 months, illustrating the large opportunity our profession has to provide successful outcomes that can greatly impact patients’ lives.
