“Treatment of the Worn Dentition”

This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by Komet USA, LLC


Patients often present needing “just one tooth fixed”, but when you look in their mouth a collapsed vertical dimension leaves no space for a restoration. One tooth becomes a whole mouth and instantly the entire case escalates. How do we recognize the signs of worn dentition? What if the teeth can’t be utilized in the final restoration?

This course will review how to properly analyze the worn dentition, suggest a new classification system, and execute a full mouth rehabilitation.

Course Objectives:
 Understand what causes a worn dentition
 Appreciate how classification systems simplify treatment planning
 Treatment plan and sequence appropriately

“Implant Overdentures: Incorporating Them Into Your Practice”


Implant has made dentistry grow in many directions. They have helped us to provide a higher standard of care to patients. Patients have had the ability to choose the option of fixed teeth rather than removable. Unfortunately there are still boundaries to this treatment: the “fixed” implant option is not affordable to everyone. Anatomy may preclude implant positioning and some patients may object to multiple surgeries.

An over denture option is a “go between” options for those patients who are straddling the world of removable and fixed. This can be an excellent option for difficult arches to treat, and those with on a moderate budget.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Patient scenarios to incorporate “implant overdentures” – treatment planning.
  2. Clinical requirements for procedure.
  3. Design concepts for overdentures.
  4. Review of patient cases.

The “Top 10 List” for Essential Drugs in the Emergency Drug Kit


Today there are more medically compromised patients being treated in our offices than ever before. As a result, a more detailed medical history and medical evaluation should be taken prior to beginning treatment.

This seminar will describe the essential drugs needed to create a medical emergency kit for your office. In addition, we will discuss three basic tests that can be easily performed to help in the physical diagnosis of patients medical status.

We will also discuss the “Conversational History” and how this can pick up many medical issues not revealed by the standard health history form. This can be performed by the dentist or staff and can prevent many potential medical emergencies from occurring.

Learning Objectives:

  • Easily recognize and manage the most frequent life threatening emergencies.
  • Implement three simple chair-side, non-invasive tests, to help avoid an emergency
  • Determine when to administer the essential “Top 10” emergency drugs
  • Utilize a systematic approach for each emergency depicted on color-coded cards
