Upcoming Medical Conferences in SunriverSearch Criteria : United States of America Sunriver
Sunriver Summer CE Weekend is organized by University of Washington (UW) School of Dentistry, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and will be held from Jul 19 - 20, 2019 at Sunriver Resort, Sunriver, Oregon, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 9 Total CE Credits. Target Audience: This course is designed dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, dental specialists Friday afternoon lecture – 2:30pm until dinner: Safety and Simplicity in Root Canal Instrumentation: Myths, Metal and Motion Nearly 25 years after the introduction of Nickel Titanium Rotary Files to endodontics, we’ve learned much about the clinical strengths and limitations of these great instruments. As a result of recent improvements in metallurgy, enhanced designs, and innovative rotary file motions, we now need to understand how these changes affect clinical instrumentation. Furthermore, we must take advantage of these improvements to create an instrumentation protocol that combines Safety with Simplicity. As a result of recent advances in metallurgy, we now have both heat treated and non-heat treated rotary files. They each possess different properties and both have indications for use as well as limitations. At Real World Endo, we believe these improvements should be employed to their utmost advantage. Consequently, we have developed a blended technique that combines the advantages of both heat treated and non-heat treated files into one Awesome Endodontic Technique!!! Lecture Objectives During this lecture component, participants will learn: • How rotary file design influences instrumentation safety and efficiency. • The advantages of heat-treated files and how best to use them. • The most effective instrument motions available for shaping root canals and their advantages and limitations Friday Evening – After dinner – Hands-On Session In this hands-on workshop, our new “Blend Technique” will be introduced and participants will learn how to use it effectively in all root canal types. After attending this workshop, you will improve your instrumentation predictability while dramatically reducing instrument separation. Furthermore, a simple yet effective obturation method will be introduced that combines the latest in material science with endodontic synchronicity for passive, bonded root canal obturation. All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the workshop. Get ready to improve your instrumentation predictability and gutta percha cone-fit while dramatically reducing instrument separation. Real World Endo remains dedicated to the preservation of the natural dentition. Hands-On Session Objectives At the conclusion of this hands-on workshop, participants will be able to: • Fully understand the need to combine the latest technology with long established, evidence-based endodontic principles. • Completely understand the need to utilize piezoelectric ultrasonics in both access and three-dimensional irrigation. • Fully appreciate the benefits of bioceramic obturation and the incorporation of matching posts. • Recognize that ‘Great Endodontics’ can be accomplished in both a safe and simple manner. The key is to combine new technology with long established, evidence-based endodontic principles. Saturday morning lecture – Current Status and Future Advances for Dental Composites, Including Techniques for Optimizing Light Curing and Bonding The current state of dental composites presents the practitioner with many material options having a broad range of physical and optical properties, and handling characteristics. The current materials have evolved based on the needs and requests of dental practitioners desiring materials capable of being used in more extensive applications, and with greater ease of use. While there is not one material that is considered ideal, dentists are able to use existing products, alone or in combination, to produce restorations that are of high quality and with excellent longevity. In the past, the introduction of new formulations was predominantly focused on materials with better esthetics, polishability, handling, and wear resistance. More recently commercial materials have been designed with reduced polymerization shrinkage and shrinkage stress, and enhanced depth of cure for use as bulk-fill restoratives. Looking to the future, the next series of developments will likely be to produce direct composite restoratives with self-adhesive qualities, already present in some flowable and cementing materials, and resin restoratives that are more resistant to the degradatory effects of intraoral hydrolysis and attack from salivary and bacterially derived enzymes. Other developments will likely include materials that are bioactive, interacting with the environment by releasing essential ions for remineralization processes, as well as releasing important molecules capable of recruiting cells to specific sites to aid in the healing and repair of lost tooth structure. Materials capable of repair of internal and external defects can also be envisioned. Lecture Objectives Upon completion of this course attendees will: • Describe the composition and types of current dental composites and explain how their composition affects their physical and mechanical properties and indications for use. • Describe the modifications in dental composite formulation that allows them to be used as bulk-fill restoratives, and identify optimal placement and curing strategies for these materials. • Identify and explain important variables that influence the production of optimally light cured and bonded dental resin-based materials. • Explain the meaning of bioactive materials and how they can be incorporated into dental composites to provide beneficial effects. • Identify the future trends in dental composite restorative materials.
