  • Nonsurgical Gingival Displacement in Restorative Dentistry | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - Gingival displacement is critical for obtaining accurate impressions for the fabrication of fixed restorations, especially when the finish line is at or just within the gingival sulcus. Displacement of the gingival tissue is also important when dealing with the restoration of cervical lesions due to their proximity to the periodontal tissue. The methods of gingival tissue displacement can be broadly classified as nonsurgical and surgical techniques, with nonsurgical being the more commonly practiced method. Dentists must alter their armamentarium and gingival displacement techniques to meet specific demands and obtain predictable results. Hence, the purpose of this article is to describe the different means by which nonsurgical gingival displacement can be achieved effectively under a variety of clinical situations.
  • CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - This course helps professionals strategize how to grow their practice with a focus on internal marketing initiatives.            
  • CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - This course will review the clinical rationale for core build-ups and the role of this technique as critical to successful crown preparations.
  • Updating Classifications of Dental Ceramic Materials | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - The indications for and composition of today’s dental ceramic materials serve as the basis for determining the appropriate class of ceramics to use for a given case. By understanding the classifications, composition, and characteristics of the latest all-ceramic materials, which are presented in this article in order of most to least conservative, dentists and laboratory technicians can best determine the ideal material for a given treatment.
  • The Bruxism Triad | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - Sleep bruxers are a difficult subset of patients to manage predictably. They damage teeth and restorations at a higher rate than normal stress-related bruxers. The adverse effect of their sleep bruxism does not stop just with tooth damage. These patients are more prone to sleep disturbances including apnea and gastric reflux symptoms. It appears that these three sleep issues are interwoven in a triad of factors that create a uniquely detrimental environment for teeth.
  • Restoration Replacement or Repair | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - When the decision is made by the clinician to intervene restoratively, the evidence supports consideration for localized marginal defects to repair rather than replace the entire restoration. Restoration repair conserves tooth structure, puts the pulp at less risk, and will provide a treatment outcome that can be as successful as total restoration replacement. This article will outline the diagnostic parameters and criteria for treatment planning replacement amalgam, composite resin, and glass-ionomer restorations with supporting evidence from a review of the dental literature.
  • Non-Carious Lesions Due to Tooth Surface Loss: To Restore or Not to Restore? | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - Tooth surface loss is a process that results in non-carious lesions. Several categories of tooth surface loss exist, including erosion, attrition, abrasion, and abfraction. There can be many causes of this condition, including bruxism, clenching, disease, dietary factors, habits and lifestyle, incorrect toothbrushing, abrasive dentifrices, the craniofacial complex, iatrogenic dentistry, and aging. Determining the etiology of tooth surface loss can be difficult but is possible through observation of the pattern of tooth surface loss on the teeth and is necessary for treatment planning to prevent failure. Currently, there are no evidence-based clinical protocols or studies on whether or not to treat the resulting non-carious lesions, nor is there an established protocol on how to treat them. Management of this process includes prevention, tooth remineralization, and active treatment by restoring the involved teeth. Treatment can range from minimally invasive and adhesive dentistry, to total mouth rehabilitation, to restoring the lost vertical height.
  • Implant Supported/Retained Restorations: An Integral Part of Contemporary Dentistry | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - During the past 30 years implant dentistry has grown to become not only a reliable, predictable segment of the mainstream of dental care, but also one that offers a vastly improved quality of life for edentulous patients. This article provides a brief history of the development of implant dentistry, including a discussion of key pioneers of dental implantology, and focuses on clinical applications and landmark clinical studies. Current technological advancements such as cone-beam computerized tomography and treatment planning software are also highlighted.
  • Current All-Ceramic Systems in Dentistry: A Review | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - This article describes the ceramic systems and processing techniques available today in dentistry. It aims to help clinicians understand the advantages and disadvantages of a myriad of ceramic materials and technique options. The microstructural components, materials’ properties, indications, and names of products are discussed to help clarify their use. Key topics will include ceramics, particle-filled glasses, polycrystalline ceramics, CAD⁄CAM, and adhesive cementation.
  • The Rise in Prescription Drug Abuse: Raising Awareness in the Dental Community | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - Prescription drugs classified as controlled dangerous substances are essential therapeutic modalities in treating a variety of healthcare conditions; however, their pleasurable side effects can appeal to patients for uses other than their intent. As a result, unfortunate consequences of prescription drug use can arise. Misuse or abuse of prescription drugs can contribute to addictive behaviors, serious health risks, and potentially, death. It is imperative that the dental community remains educated and informed of nationwide healthcare trends, and prescription drug abuse is no exception. Ethically, dentists should be able to respond in a manner that addresses the best interests of their patients. To respond appropriately, dentists need to understand the terminology of prescription drug abuse; be able to identify and describe the drugs most often misused or abused; be able to identify individuals who may be at risk for prescription drug abuse; and be prepared to manage patients at risk in the dental setting.
  • Universal Adhesives: The Next Evolution in Adhesive Dentistry? | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - Every so often a new material, technique, or technological breakthrough spurs a paradigm shift in the way dentistry is practiced. The development and evolution of reliable enamel and dentin bonding agents is one such example. Indeed, the so-called “cosmetic revolution” in dentistry blossomed in large part due to dramatic advances in adhesive technology. It is the ability to bond various materials in a reasonably predictable fashion to both enamel and dentin substrates that enables dentists to routinely place porcelain veneers, direct and indirect composites, and a plethora of other restorative and esthetic materials. In fact, the longevity and predictability of many (if not most) current restorative procedures is wholly predicated on the dentist’s ability to bond various materials to tooth tissues. Adhesive systems have progressed from the largely ineffective systems of the 1970s and early 1980s to the relatively successful total- and self-etching systems of today. The latest players in the adhesive marketplace are the so-called “universal adhesives.” In theory, these systems have the potential to significantly simplify and expedite adhesive protocols and may indeed represent the next evolution in adhesive dentistry. But what defines a universal system, and are all these new systems truly “universal” and everything they are claimed to be? This article will examine the origin, chemistry, strengths, weaknesses, and clinical relevance of this new genre of dental adhesives.
  • Resin-Based Composite as a Direct Esthetic Restorative Material | CDEWorld - Continuing Dental Education - The search for an ideal esthetic material for tooth restoration has resulted in significant improvements in both materials and the techniques for using them. Various resin-based composite (RBC) materials have recently been introduced into the market that offer improved esthetic and physical properties. This article reviews RBCs, including their compositions, advantages, and disadvantages, that are contemporary to today’s clinical practice as well as those that are under research consideration and/or in clinical trial phase.
