  1. Medical Emergency Update - 2010

Medical emergencies can and do occur in dental practices every day. Over the next fifteen years the segment of the population at highest risk for medical emergencies, those 65 and older, will become a larger percentage of our patients. The entire dental team must be prepared to recognize and respond to a variety of medical emergencies that could be precipitated by the stress of the dental environment. This course will discuss the diagnosis, prevention, and management of common medical emergencies that might occur in dental offices. This four-hour course is appropriate for the entire dental team and meets the medical emergency education requirement of the Oregon Board of Dentistry for license renewal and anesthesia permits.

  2. Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and Ridge Preservation Grafting 

There are several factors to consider when restoring failing dentition in the anterior region. While a tooth can be replaced with an implant, achieving an esthetic result is challenging. The dental team must evaluate numerous criteria to define the optimal treatment plan. Among the considerations are whether to extract the tooth and perform immediate implant replacement or to perform a ridge preservation procedure. This course presents diagnostic determinants to help decide the most appropriate course of therapy to achieve the best functional and esthetic results.
 
Immediate implant placement is considered to be advantageous because of several reasons: it shortens the treatment duration, reduces the number of surgical visits, preserves soft tissue and hard tissue architecture, and enhances aesthetic outcome, especially in the upper anterior region. Specific case selection criteria will be reviewed to provide the clinician with the diagnostic parameters for immediate implants.
 
At the conclusion of this course, attendees will:
  • Understand case selection criteria for immediate versus staged implant placement.
  • Understand clinical parameters that predict the likelihood of “esthetic success”.
  • Understand the rationale and protocol for ridge preservation grafting in the esthetic zone.
  • Develop protocols for temporary restoration of immediate implant cases.
