Course Summary for Technology and Techniques for Dental Implant Success:

You know dental implants require specialized care, but do you have a WHY and HOW behind your workflow? This course will provide insight into how to create a diagnostic and maintenance workflow, utilizing the latest technology and home care recommendations that will set your patients up for a lifetime of success.

Learning Objectives for Technology and Techniques for Dental Implant Success:

  • Differentiate between a healthy, inflamed, and diseased implant
  • Understand technology and techniques available for implant maintenance
  • Understand when and where specific technology is indicated on implants based on periodontal condition and type of implant
  • Apply knowledge of what tools to recommend to patients for homecare around implants

    Course Summary for Panoramic Radiographs: 2D Imaging with a 3D perspective:

     Superimposition, artifacts, and distortion have always limited understanding of panoramic anatomy and interpretation. However, with the assistance of CBCT imaging, we can do away with those limitations to better understand the relationship of vital structures, develop more comprehensive search patterns, and appreciate changes that occur due to anatomical variations and pathology. Dr. Andreasen will join 2D and 3D imaging to revisit maxillofacial anatomy and pathology and, in addition, will utilize basic panoramic physics and principles to further the clinician's diagnostic accuracy. After attending this course, clinicians will better appreciate the value of panoramic technology and understand how to use it more effectively in their practices to diagnose and treat their patients.

    Learning Objectives for Panoramic Radiographs: 2D Imaging with a 3D perspective:

    • Identify anatomy on panoramic radiographs and understand the relationship to surrounding structures
    • Develop a search pattern for efficient and effective image review
    • Appreciate panoramic image formation principles and their use in diagnosis
    • Recognize common pathology in 2D imaging and their clinical relevance
    • Understand the advancements in panoramic technology, the limitations of panoramic radiographs, and when you need a CBCT
