PEAK Presentations from your Colleagues

Hear your colleagues present real-world examples of how they implemented lessons learned on esthetics, prosth, and ortho from the 2024 Spring meeting. Nothing to present? Come anyway, the best lessons are often learned from your colleagues.

When Implants Go Wrong: How to Diagnose, Prevent and Treat Dental Implant Complications by Dr. Bart Silverman

As predictable as implant dentistry has become, complications and failures still occur. This program will help clinicians with proper patient selection, and how to overcome some of the more common challenges and failures that occur post-surgically as well as post-restoratively. Learning which type of grafting material is best for different grafting protocols/objectives and an introduction into a digital workflow with a focus on full arch reconstruction will be discussed. 

Learning Objectives: At the end of this course, attendees should be able to:

  • Identify potential complications
  • Understand how to approach failed grafted sites
  • Identify the correct suturing techniques for grafted and non-grafted surgical sights
  • Select the correct grafting/regeneration materials and protocol based upon a patient's needs
  • Understand the implementation of a digital workflow for full arch reconstruction

Advanced Endodontics: From Concepts to Clinical Practice by Dr. David Landwehr

Endodontic success is dependent on a variety of interrelated factors, but elimination of bacteria from the root canal system is the ultimate goal.  Although case complexity varies greatly from tooth to tooth, the core fundamentals of endodontic treatment remain the same.  This seminar will provide a comprehensive review of advanced endodontic diagnosis strategies and the limitations of pulp testing.  A protocol will be presented to aid clinicians in locating the hard-to-find canals.  A glide path strategy that will allow clinicians to negotiate small, long, and curved canals will be reviewed.  Instrumentation options will be discussed to maximize clinical efficiency and safety in common and atypical anatomies.  Enhanced irrigation protocols will be explored prior to presenting state of the art obturation techniques.  Additionally, retreatment strategies will be discussed with a special emphasis on identifying and removal of different root filling materials.

The participant will learn:

  • How to increase the accuracy of endodontic diagnosis by understanding the limitations of pulp testing and radiology.
  • The importance of glide path management and the benefits of creating a reproducible and enhanced glide path with a single mechanical instrument, while preserving maximum dentin for restoration and function.
  • The design features and working characteristics of root canal instrumentation systems and their impact on clinical efficiency and predictability.
  • The simplicity and importance of enhanced irrigation following shaping of the root canal system.
  • A predictable way to remove gutta percha and other obturation materials from the root canal system.

Now You Don't, Now You See It: A Tour of Adding the Z Axis Into our Diagnostic Tools by Dr. Rob Bagoff 

X-rays were first discovered in 1895.  Since then, the mysteries of the “inside” of things has become less mysterious. We have graduated from a “CONE” at the end of the 2-D X-ray unit to a present-day cylinder or column. Large exposure times have been reduced to milliseconds due to better film and digital sensor technology. Then, onto the scene came the CBCT 3-D imaging. In the late 1990’s CBCT’s were introduced into dental schools, hospitals and some private offices. From 2010 on, CBCT’s have made their way into our private offices. 

We will review:

  • How the CBCT can enhance our diagnosis and treatment planning
  • How we can better identify the beginnings of an endodontic lesion.
  • Better implant bone loss diagnosis.
  • How we send a scan to the oral surgeon when taking out impacted third molars on your patients. 
  • The ability to scan an analogue impression and email it to your lab. 
  • How you can mesh a CBCT and a digital intra oral impression for patient case presentation, to sending the files to your in office or remote lab for restorations.
