Applications of 3D Imaging in Dentistry

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Discuss the critical differences between 2D and 3D imaging
  • Compare and understand the current variety of applications of CBCT in dentistry
  • Review basic anatomy and a SIMPLE approach to reading and reviewing
  • Assess when to read or refer

Abstract

1.5 CE Course

The advent of CBCT imaging has revolutionized dentistry by allowing clinicians to observe their patients in 3D. Not only has this technology increased productivity and efficiency, but it allows clinicians to see more anatomy and pathology than was observed with conventional 2D radiographs.

Join renowned dental radiologist Dr. Heidi Kohltfarber for an in-depth comparison of 2D and 3D imaging with applications of CBCT in all areas of dentistry, such as implant treatment planning, endodontics, orthodontics, airway analysis, temporomandibular joints, and more. Dr. Kohltfarber will also present and discuss case histories, clinical signs and symptoms, and structural anomalies that may indicate that a patient would benefit from a CBCT scan.

This course offers 1.5 CE.

The No-Nonsense Guide to Bone Grafting

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

Dr. Wong will highlight several implant cases that required bone grafting, with emphasis on how he utilized CBCT to ensure predictable patient outcomes. Dr. Wong will also review:

  • The factors that most commonly lead to bone resorption, including tooth loss, gum disease or trauma
  • Why the careful evaluation of bone density and quality is critical before any dental implant procedure
  • The types of bone graft options available — and how to determine the best fit for each patient

Abstract

With more than half of all dental implants requiring a bone graft, the importance of leveraging cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in your implant workflows cannot be overstated. While CBCT is critical for implant planning and placement, it also allows the clinician to evaluate whether a bone graft is needed.

Join Dr. David Wong, leading clinician, influencer and renowned lecturer, for an insightful look at bone grafting techniques and procedures, and how CBCT aids in the overall treatment planning process.

Abstract

As 3D imaging has continued to make its mark as an indispensable tool in the dental industry, dental professionals are increasingly leveraging the cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan into their daily practice workflows.

Join Dr. Daniel Berant, a double board-certified specialist in periodontics and orthodontics, as he walks through the basics of CBCT, with a particular focus on periodontal and orthodontic diagnosis and treatments. He will review the benefits of this technology for a range of procedures — from placing simple single implants to reverse engineering a socket for tooth autotransplantation — and how a CBCT scan has evolved from merely a crucial first step in the diagnosis process to guiding the treatment itself.

Contemporary Dental Radiography: Review of Safety, Imaging Success, & Common Technique Errors

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, the dental practitioner should be able to:
1. define radiation and relate its potentially harmful effects to safety protocols
2. write office radiation policies that reduce clinician and patient exposure
3. implement techniques that produce high-quality diagnostic images
4. identify common imaging errors and understand appropriate corrective measures
5. distinguish between 2D and 3D imaging and understand their dental applications. 

Abstract

Dental radiology requires that clinicians have an in-depth understanding and respect for the laws of ionizing  radiation as well as an earnest drive to protect themselves  and patients from possible harmful effects. This course will  present current research-based radiation safety protocols  as outlined by leading national organizations in the United  States. In addition to capturing radiographs safely, dental  professionals also need to produce high-quality, diagnostic  images. This course will cover imaging principles that  produce diagnostically sound radiographs, review capturing  techniques, and identify common radiographic errors and corrective actions.
