NEW YORK, NY, USA: People from around the world flock to the annual Greater New York Dental Meeting, and with very good reasons beyond the fact that there is no registration fee. This year, Dental Tribune America has partnered with the meeting’s organizers to offer four days of symposia in the areas of endodontics, implantology, cosmetic and digital dentistry. The meeting is scheduled for 29 November to 2 December.

Each day will feature four individual one-hour lectures on various topics led by experts in their fields. Participants not only earn CE credits, but also gain an invaluable opportunity to learn diverse aspects of dentistry and how to integrate a variety of treatment options into their practice.

DTSC Symposia at the GNYDM – C.E. Program 2009

29 November, 10:00 – 11:00 am
One-Step Adhesion, One-Step Cementation
Dr George Freedman DDS

7th generation adhesive materials have simplified the process of dental bonding, and made esthetic procedures very predictable. These new products etch, bond and desensitize in a single step, and virtually eliminate post-operative sensitivity while decreasing the potential for marginal breakdown. Since 7th generation adhesives do not require “moist” dental surfaces for bonding, this most technique sensitive requirement has been eliminated.
Indirect procedures have been simplified by newer, easier to use, impression materials and one-step resin cements. Etch, prime, desensitize, condition, and bond the abutment(s) in one single application. Straight from the automix syringe, into the crown, and onto the moist prepared tooth. One-step post cementation and core build-up techniques and materials are also available.

29 November, 11:30 – 12:30 pm
High resolution Cone Beam with PreXion 3D
Dr Dan McEowen DDS

Cone Beam Computed Tomography offers a whole new paradigm to dental radiography. From what has been conventional 2D images, dentists now have the ability to look at the maxillo-facial region in any direction, any thickness as well as in 3D. With the introduction of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) the specialist and general dentist alike can now afford to own and enjoy the benefits of this fantastic diagnostic tool. We will discuss the basics of CBCT, FOV (field of view), focal spot, Flat panel types, processing time, gray scale and how these affect resolution and image quality. We will discuss PreXion 3D high resolution images and spend time with real scans showing how these images can be used in Periodontal treatment planning, Implant planning, Oral surgery planning, Complex Endodontic planning and diagnosis and treatment planning for the general dentist.

29 November, 1:30 – 2:30 pm

Know Your Products & Tools for Today’s Healing Dentistry
Dr Fay Goldstep DDS

Dental therapy has returned to its CONSERVE-ative basics: less removal of tooth and periodontal structures; and less intervention in the healing process. This program focuses on the new technological advances that have made this possible: scientific, accurate, reproducible and clinically significant caries detection; the potpourri of the ingredients and tools that the dentists needs for healing therapies; giomers — the new healing composite resin; photo-activated disinfection to promote remineralization and healing; and user-friendly laser technology to keep perio treatment in your office.

30 November, 1:30 – 2:30 pm
OraVerse - In Practice
Dr Steven Glassman DDS

Dr Steven Glassman will discuss the use of OraVerse in his practice. He will share his experience including useful applications, case examples, patient responses and ideas on how it may be incorporated into treatment plans. OraVerse is a local anesthesia reversal agent that accelerates the return to normal sensation after routine dental procedures. Clinical documentation showing the safety and efficacy of the drug in clinical trials will also be highlighted.

30 November, 3:00 – 4:00 pm
The Advantage of Small FoV High Resolution CBCT Imaging
Dr Dan McEowen DDS

This presentation will instruct you on how to take a 360 degree rotation with either 512 or 1024 projections during the scanning time. You will learn how to produce ready-to-go 3D, saggital and coronal images within 30 seconds after the scan axial. Dr McEowen will introduce PreXion 3D, the only CBCT scanning unit using its own built-in Graphic cards, as well as 3D rendering boards, which result in the highest resolution when considering all smaller FoV CBCT scanning devices. With an outstanding image quality PreXion 3D also provides a very customer friendly and easy to use software, accompanied by premium technical support.

1 December, 10:00 – 11:00 am
Technological Resources and Biological Concepts In Minimally Invasive Endodontics
Dr Renato Leonardo, DDS

This course is ideal for the progressive general practitioner with a minimally invasive practice. Along with hands-on training, clear demonstrations and an educational presentation, lecture participants can expect information about vital and non-vital pulp therapy, the Anatomic Endodontic Technology (A.E.T.) System and the Apical Delivered Obturation (A.D.O.) System. The lecture will illustrate hand, rotary and oscillatory instrumentation of the root canal system as well as root canal filling materials and techniques.

Esthetics Using Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
Dr David Hoexter DMD

A beautiful smile-the desired image- must be healthy and maintainable. In today’s society this goal is subjective and influenced by our interpretation of esthetics. Using periodontal techniques, specifically Cosmetic periodontal surgical techniques, I will show how changing the background of the desired image will enhance it to appear brighter, cleaner, healthier, yet physiological, as well. The techniques demonstrated will be streamlined and made practical for the General Practitioner. Techniques included will be: root recession coverage; Growing Enamel techniques; Gingival ridge enhancement (for pontics, teeth and implants); gingival color changes; and others. All the techniques are designed in a teamwork fashion with the restorative dentist to enhance the desired goal.

Immediate Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
Dr Barry Levin DDS

The time frame of 3-6 months of unloaded healing is not always mandatory any longer. With osteoconductive implant surfaces, newer implant materials and proper diagnoses, patients can often experience implant therapy without the inconvenience of removable temporary appliances, and bonded provisional restorations. Immediate temporization gives the patient an immediate sense of security and esthetics. The provisional restorations can also lead to early and optimal soft tissue support from the time of surgery. The importance of bone augmentation for predictable, long-lasting esthetics and case selection will also be discussed.

2 December, 1:30 – 2:30 pm
More Than Just Teeth and Gums

Amazing patient testimonials and treatment outcomes discussed.

2 December, 3:00 – 4:00 pm
My First Esthetic Implant Case – why, how, & when? – A live and interactive online broadcast from Germany
Dr Marius Steigmann DDS

Aesthetic dental implants are of increasing importance in today’s dentistry. Success from the aesthetic aspect requires bone height and width, soft tissue architecture and prosthetic restorations close to nature. Out of these three elements, it is the soft tissue frame, which can be maintained or reconstructed not only using surgery but also with the right prosthetic elements. In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile necessary in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile is composed of two parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The form of the abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives a natural appearance. This shape is individual according to each situation, depending on the depth, angulations and diameter of the implant. Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical prospective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected if necessary. From a prosthetic point of view the emergence profile has to be created so that it looks natural and, over time, maintains the natural soft tissue level, or the one created in the surgical phase.
