The Program

Course Description: 
"All-On-4" and "Revitalize" are all based upon Nobel's Teeth-In-A-Day concept, a very popular method of restoring edentulous patients and patients with failed dentition. Generally, this service is synonymous with immediate placement of 4 implants and subsequent seating of a provisional restoration during one surgical procedure in one day. This procedure has been completed successfully thousands of times throughout world. However there are alternatives to this particular procedure. Patients can receive more than 4 implants; it is not required that the provisional restoration be loaded immediately; new methods allow less alveoplasty; alternative restorative materials have emerged recently; and more. During the course we will share these concepts.

ROE has assisted chairside with and fabricated restorations for hundreds of cases. We'v

Attendees of this course will learn the All-In-One-Day procedure. Discussion will include presurgical steps, design of the provisional appliance, surgical procedures including bone reduction, guided surgery, non-guided surcdtgery, two methods for immediate loading the provisional prosthesis, in-office laboratory process, and final prosthetic restorative procedures and options.

Doctors are welcome to bring pretreatment casts to the course to discuss.

CLINICAL PERFORMANCE OF ALL-ZIRCONIA RESTORATIONS
TRACK-RESEARCH'S FINDINGS FROM 3 YEAR INVIVO STUDIES

Speaker: Rella Christensen PhD

Location: ROE Dental Laboratory Date: April 11, 2014 Time: 8:00 - 8:30 Registration 8:30 - 11:00 Lecture

Format: Lecture 3 hours Register: Call 216 663 2233 ext 306 Cost: $45

Course Description:

The rapid acceptance of all-zirconia single- and multi-unit restorations by clinicians and patients is without precedence in dentistry.  An ongoing controlled clinical study of BruxZir all-zirconia posterior single- and multi-unit restorations now entering its fourth year has yielded important information.  This presentation will show clinical and scanning electron microscope images answering questions about zirconia durability, wear of opposing dentition, esthetics,rella christensen optimal preparations, cementation, how to handle endo access if needed, and many other critical questions.  This study is showing superior performance for the all-zirconia restorations which is noteworthy in today’s economy.

Understanding All-Ceramics - Techno-Clinical Perspectives and Clinical Tips for Success

Speaker: Dr. Damon Adams, Editor in Chief of Dentistry Today

Location: Computer Helper Publishing, 450 Beecher Rd, Columbus Ohio 44230

Date: April 25, 2014 Time: 8:00 - 8:30 Registration 8:30 - 4:30 Lecture

Format: Lecture 7 hours Register: Call 216 663 2233 ext 306 Cost: $125

Course Description:

Knowledge of the latest indirect dental materials is vital to maximizing the aesthetic and functional success of your team-created restorations. Dental materials are sometimes being brought to market and being widely used in patients without adequate science-based evidence. Dr. Adams will help you increase your understanding of the most advanced materials with the goal of making better-informed choices. A basic knowledge of today’s all-ceramic materials is also a must for today’s assistants and hygienists, allowing them to explain, discuss, and support treatment plans presented to patients that include these advanced aesthetic options.
This full-day science-based presentation is recommended for doctors.

Learning Objectives:
 What are the clinical factors that can make the difference between success and failure for your all-ceramic cases?
 What you and your office team can do to help the laboratory team give back the best result
 The basics classifications of the all-ceramic materials currently available
 Advantages and disadvantages of each class of modern all-ceramic materials
 A review of some of the latest developments and innovations in the world of all-ceramics
 How to minimize all-ceramic fractures/ failures to reduce stress and increase profits
 100% zirconium restorations: Evidence-based data versus future challenges?
 New coping designs for HIP’d zirconia. Should our labs be slow cooling, or fast cooling zirconia restorations? Myths versus research!
 What are the best cements for all-ceramics available today? The latest approaches to increase bond strength and decrease microleakage. Curing challenges under ACs?
 An update on surface treatments for all-ceramics. Making it much simpler!
 Treatment planning considerations for all-ceramics: opening the doctor-technician channels
 Are all-ceramics always the best choice? What are some of the best alternatives?

DR. DAMON ADAMS ATTENDEE FEEDBACK FEB, 21 2014

Dear Dr. Adams, “Dear fellow U of Mich graduate!

Again thank you for the quality of your lectures, you are a great mind!”    Dr. Jacques Ciepielewski

Damon.           “Let me honestly tell you that your lecture was the best I saw...  You cruised through a lot of great points without belaboring over any too long, you were light hearted without trying to be a comedian…” Tom Northway DDS

Hi Damon,      “ Wow!! I'm so glad that I got to sit in on your AM session….  In my opinion, you are already a world class speaker with a relevant choice of material to cover.  Your delivery is relaxed and engaging…..with just enough humor thrown in.  You may not realize how good you are so I am telling you!! …..and you should know that I am a CE junky of sorts and have sat through zillions of presentations….. You're a "head-liner" bro……”  Dr. "Marty" Goldstein

Hello Dr Adams,   “I attended your seminar yesterday at the CDS MWM and I REALLY enjoyed it. 
It was truly enlightening to learn more about the different types of ceramics that there are available for crowns and to have them organized.  I look forward to going through the notes again just to get a better understanding of each. …I was concerned more about the harm they could do to the opposing dentition and did not think about the supporting periodontium itself.   Sincerely, Kathy Zuccarelli DDS

Dr. Adams,     “Thanks for a very informative and comprehensive lecture. I certainly learned more today than I did in dental school on this topic. Thank you!” Dr. Lindsay Lichtenberg

Damon,           “Thank you for your honest and insightful lecture on ceramics at the Chicago Mid Winter meeting.
