It has been suggested to either not have your zirconia crowns glazed by your lab or to sandblast the occlusal surface to be able to evaluate the occlusion better at the seating appointment. Once the occlusion has been established, getting a glaze like finish on your zirconia restoration can be challenging. Using the 2 step zirconia polishers will ensure you achieve the glossy finish she seek. Our composite restorations deserve the same respect. Again, using the 2 step composite polishers with the 48L finishing bur will give you exquisite results, without the use of messy polishing pastes.

Infection prevention is more important than ever before, for patient safety and for patients to maintain confidence in their dental practice. Although instruments may have been processed in the sterilizer, maintaining the sterility of dental instruments after the packages are removed from the sterilizer is a critical step in patient safety protocols. This process begins with the selection of packaging materials that are optimal for the instrument management system, utilization of process indicators and integrators, placement in the sterilizer, appropriate drying, and storage of instrument packages. This CE webinar will be based on the CDC Guidelines for Dental Health Care Settings, as well as the CDC Guidelines for Sterilization and Disinfection in Health Care Settings.

In this CE webinar, please join us as we explore how oral healthcare providers can make a significant difference in identifying patients who have asymptomatic or poorly controlled diabetes, and how glycemic control influences periodontal stability in the reduced periodontium of a patient with diabetes. Addressing diabetes has always been of paramount importance; however, with what we've learned about how diabetes may increase susceptibility to life-threatening viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 and associated complications, there has never been a more critical time for OHPCs to join the fight against diabetes.

Clear aligner therapy has become an increasingly common addition to the orthodontist and the general practitioner. Both adults and children seek orthodontic treatment without traditional wire braces, providing the patient with a more aesthetic and comfortable solution to straightening teeth. Attachments, bonded composite, are used for most of the clear aligner systems. These enhance the aligner retention and allow more complex movements to be performed. Dr. Ataii will explain the benefits of using a composite with bioactive Giomer Technology for clear aligner therapy. He will also discuss the best practices on how to place and remove the attachments/engagers and which products to use for optimal results.

The first step in effective instrument reprocessing for dentistry is the cleaning process. If all debris is not removed from the instruments prior to sterilization, instruments and other items will not be sterile and safe for patient treatment. This CE webinar will look at all aspects of instrument cleaning, from instrument cleaning techniques and devices, to selecting the appropriate equipment and solutions and monitoring equipment for efficacy. CDC guidelines for instrument cleaning will be reviewed, and manufacturer’s instructions for use will be discussed.
