12/6/19 - Better Preps, One Visit Crowns, and Small Diameter Implants: Things You Can Do to Help Patients and the Practice 

Dr. Richard Lipscomb

Course Description:

As General Dentists, we are constantly put into clinical situations that can be managed in different ways.  So, the more treatment options we can offer to patients, the better the chances we have to help patients with their dental problems.  This course will cover how to be more efficient in prepping teeth for C+B cases, and offer One-Visit-Crowns (OVC) and Small Diameter Implants (SDI) to your patients.  

Also, attendees will be shown what preppred tooth margins should look like, and how to create them.  The key to predictable, functional, and esthetically pleasing C+B cases, is producing margins that everyone can see (the Lab Technician, the Dental Assistant, and the Dentist).  This allows your lab to build upon a great foundation, the impression-making to be more predictable, and the provisional process becomes faster.

Learning Objectives:

1. State two criteria that C+B labs are looking for in digital scanned preps and impressions or traditional impressions. 
2. Explain how visible margins are created.
3. Identify two components of a one-visit-crown procedure.
4. Explain how to place a OVC using indirect chair-side technique.
5. Learn how small diameter implants can benefit your existing denture patients.
6. Recognize the indications and contraindications for the use of OVC and SDI.
7. Learn how OVC and SDI can be incorporated into your practice.
