From Here to Eternity:
How to Set Up Your Treatments and Your Practice for Long-Term Success
A diverse mix of diagnostic, restorative, and complex treatment protocols embody that the philosophy of the best dentistry is no dentistry. Early detection of dental pathologies and use of minimally invasive procedures can set a patient up for long-term oral success. Materials, equipment and techniques that have led to 35 years of clinical successes will be explored, along with many of the problems. Learning from these problems and the techniques used create important learning points.
When the National Institute of Health reports that composite resins only last 5.7 years and the main reason for replacement is recurrent decay and fractures, we need to examine how this impacts our patients and practices. Reasons for this lack of success and techniques for creating long-term success will be taught. More complex care will also be presented that follow along the lines of this minimal invasive philosophy.Objectives:
- We will delve into the full palate of dental care from diagnostics to final restoratives and maintenance protocols to help you learn how to create and maintain long-term success with minimal impact on the patients’ health.
- Minimally invasive preparation designs, restorative techniques and subsequent equipment utilized will be presented to help you tweak and fine tune your current procedures.
- You will understand Biomimetic restorative treatment protocols for more severely destroyed teeth to enhance long-term success.
- Through complex diagnostics and case presentations you will understand not only how you can transition patients into more definitive care but also how to maintain these cases for long-term health.
- You will understand how the various advanced diagnostic technologies presented can diagnose early to prevent future complex care, and intervene early to enhance success.
