Orange County Dental Society Root Resorption of Dental Origin 2022/10/25 - 2022/10/25 Webinar Martin Trope, DMD (714) 634-8944 http://www.ocds.org Under normal circumstances permanent teeth do not resorb. This fact appears to be due to anti-resorptive properties of the pre-cementum on the external surface of the root and the pre-dentin on the internal surface of the root. If these tissues are intact, periodontitis will result in bone resorption but root resorption will generally not occur. If however, these tissues are removed or altered, the inflammatory response will include multinucleated clastic cells and root resorption will ensue. Therefore active root resorption due to dental injuries is always inflammatory in origin, is destructive in nature and is radiolucent on the radiograph. If the stimulus for the inflammation is not removed the destructive inflammatory resorption will continue until the entire root surface is destroyed. The healing response is dependent on the amount of damage to the root surface if the initial inflammation goes into the healing phase. If the inflammatory stimulus is self limiting or is reversed by the dentist healing will result. If after the destructive inflammation subsides the damage to the root surface is over a small surface area healing with new cementum and periodontal ligament will result. This is considered favorable healing. If on the other hand the damage is over a diffuse or large surface area, cementum will not be able to cover the entire root surface and bone producing cells will attach directly onto the root surface and eventually osseous replacement of the root will occur. This is unfavorable healing. This talk will describe the typical causes of root resorption. Diagnosis of different inflammatory stimulators will be discussed and the most effective treatment strategies to minimize inflammation and thus predispose to favorable healing will be presented.

UCLA School of Dentistry Dental Acupuncture and Integrative Oral Medicine 2022/10/07 - 2022/10/09 UCLA School of Dentistry Kenneth E. Moore, DDS; Cynthia P. Diep, DDS, LAc; Andrew Shubov, MD (310) 206-8388 https://dentistry.ucla.edu/academics-admissions/continuing-dental-education/courses Patients are increasingly seeking out acupuncture as an adjunct to standard pain control measures. This is becoming more relevant in the setting of the current opiate epidemic, as acupuncture provides a non-pharmacologic approach to reduce pain. This is also important in the realms of sleep medicine and orofacial pain where pharmacotherapy is riddled with a high side effect burden and risk of abuse. Despite the WHO having recommended acupuncture for treatments on headache, facial pain, neuralgia and insomnia, few programs are available for dentists who wish to seek training. UCLA School of Dentistry is offering a unique, evidence-based program to train dentists in the basics of dental acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory. By combining TCM principles with Western allopathic Medicine modalities, participants will feel comfortable diagnosing and understanding the pathophysiology of both acute and chronic oral pain conditions from an integrative East-West perspective. Moreover, participants will learn basic acupuncture treatments that can be safely delivered to patients. 4 Session Course at UCLA October 7-9, 2022 November 4-6, 2022 December 2-4, 2022 January 13-15, 2023 $6000 80 View Details

UCLA School of Dentistry Preservation of Alveolar Bone Dimensions in Extraction Sockets 2022/10/22 - 2022/10/22 UCLA School of Dentistry Paulo Camargo, DDS, MS; Philip Melnick, DMD (310) 206-8388 https://dentistry.ucla.edu/academics-admissions/continuing-dental-education/courses The exponential growth in implant dentistry has resulted in the development of a number of new and important procedures. The preservation of the dimensions of the alveolar ridge after tooth removal is crucial for the successful placement of dental implants. The scientific evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of bone grafts and guided bone regeneration in preserving and regenerating hard tissue in extraction sockets is overwhelming. This hands-on workshop uses a pig jaw model where participants will practice the regenerative treatment of fresh extraction sockets, including the selection and use of bone grafts, membranes and biological wound dressings. Additionally, participants will be taught flap elevation and suturing techniques that may be used in conjunction with ridge preservation procedures. $950 8 View Details

Diode lasers are soft-tissue lasers that have many advantages over traditional surgical and therapeutic techniques including less pain, faster healing and preciseness, bacterial reduction, along with no contraindications. Some of the most commonly used Diode laser procedures in the hygiene department are Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR), Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT), hemostasis, and the treatment of oral lesions (aphthous ulcers/herpetic lesions), This course will present common diode laser procedures, techniques used in the hygiene department, and how to incorporate lasers into your practice. Learning Objectives: • Identify the laser procedures and benefits most commonly used in the hygiene department • Understand the laser device and settings • Discuss tips and techniques to get the best results with your patients • Describe strategies for communicating and educating patients about lasers HANDS-ON WORKSHOP: Diode Lasers Used in the Hygiene Practice Course Description: The Diode laser has become the most utilized laser in dentistry today especially in the hygiene department.

Kepic, DDS, MSD Prognosis for the Periodontally Compromised Tooth Course Description: A Historical Perspective Along With Short and Long-Term Follow up of Cases. Establishing an accurate periodontal prognosis is paramount to case success. Prognosis is often thought of as being “static,” established once, and never to change. However, proper periodontal therapy can alter a tooth’s prognosis, if done in time. This course will show both short and long-term cases where prognosis has changed during therapy. Learning Objectives: • Identifying the clinical factors used in assigning prognosis. • Understanding the historical research that leads to the modern day concept of prognosis. • Defining the new concept of periodontal diseases and host susceptibility as factors used in determining prognosis. -------------------------------------------------------------- Katrina M. Sanders, RDH, BSDH, M.Ed, RF Warning: Graphic Photographs Ahead Course Description: While the rest of the world may quiver with churned stomachs, one of the best traits of a dental professional is their excitement and joy around graphic oral diseased cases. Despite the oftentimes ‘colourful’ nature of the oral disease, these cases offer an incredible learning opportunity, particularly in the importance of early and definitive intervention. Join Katrina M Sanders, RDH, BSDH, M.Ed, RF for a dental rendition of ‘Dr Pimple Popper’ as she presents graphic photographs of surgical cases requiring periodontal therapy. This will be your final warning: there WILL be graphic photos ahead! Learning Objectives: • Review appropriate surgical cases for periodontal referral • Identify options for treatment planning of detailed periodontal therapy in an efficient, detailed and strategic method • Describe short and long term goals for periodontal patients that are measurable and attainable Please visit website 6 CE View Details
