North Eastern Division Meeting
6.5 CPD Hours | Alternatives to Crowns Presented by Dr Michael Mandikos A patient presents to your practice requiring urgent attention for a fractured molar. Secretly, you hope that the tooth will require a crown, but instead find that the tooth is largely intact and perhaps should be treated with a large direct composite. Disheartened at not being able to do a more complex and profitable procedure, you resign yourself to the mundane of a “533”. Whilst this is of course being a little cheeky with the reality of such a situation, it is true that larger composites are very hard to do, and you would prefer to do a crown. But when your clinical judgment tells you that the tooth does not really need a full coverage crown, what is the alternative? Too often this is the thought process we go through when in fact the present technologies and techniques available to us make this an exciting opportunity to practice minimal intervention, bio-mimetic dentistry. And with no laboratory fee, these procedures are profitable! This tooth does not require a filling, it is crying out for an adhesive, reinforcing, aesthetic reconstruction in composite resin! During this lecture program, you will learn about the latest advancements in dentine bonding agents and ultra-low shrinkage composite resins. See how these materials can be implemented into your practice, bringing with them the benefits of lower polymerisation shrinkage and decreased stresses to the tooth. Post-operative sensitivity can be resigned to the past and these technologies will help to further improve the prognosis of the tooth and the longevity of these conservative restorations. In this presentation, you will see how these principles can be applied to anterior and posterior restorations. Don't miss out on this engaging and informative all-day course with Dr Michael Mandikos. Your registration fee includes coffee/tea on arrival, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. ...

Conservative Management of the Worn Dentition - Including Injection Moulding Restorative Techniques
6.5 CPD Hours | What strategies are required as patients and their restored dentitions age? Restoration of an extensively worn or badly broken down dentition can be complex, costly and time consuming to implement. Because of its complexity and cost, this treatment is often delayed until it becomes essential. Dentists (and patients!) want to stop the repeat restoration cycle and its ongoing costly restorative burden. So how do we treat the patient with a severely broken down dentition? Through lectures, clinical demonstrations and participation exercises, Professor Meyers will present four steps to restorative success: Clinical evaluation of patients Review of a number of patient cases  Risk assessment tools Impact of patient’s health and lifestyle  Correct treatment planning prior to restoration Oral environment How dry mouth and salivary acidity correlates with severe tooth wear and non-carious tooth surface loss Examination requirements, salivary analysis and remineralisation strategies Stabilisation of the oral environment and risk reduction prior to restoration New materials and techniques How to evaluate the range of materials and techniques available for cost-effective and conservative management and aesthetics Step by step procedures (using a range of materials) to allow participants to compare the various materials and techniques for direct and semi-direct restorations Practical experience Demonstration and participant simulation exercises covering techniques for the restoration of the worn dentition; including direct restorative techniques, laboratory procedures, direct, semi-direct and indirect adhesive technologies ...

All-Ceramic Crowns and Veneers in the Aesthetic Practice
12.0 CPD Hours | FULLY BOOKED | In the modern age of patients demanding more aesthetic and natural looking restorations, this two day course covers the use of ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers, onlays and crowns) from treatment planning to preparation and cementation. A thorough clinical assessment with comprehensive planning of the patient will be emphasised with the use of diagnostic waxups in the workup of anterior restorations. Understanding the principles of smile design and communicating with patients will be emphasised and allow the practitioner the confidence to plan cases predictably. The myriad of different ceramics available will be discussed with their indications and alternative approaches to their implementation. Preparation and provisionalistion techniques will be practiced within an intensive hands-on workshop and participants will be expected to complete multiple preparation of porcelain veneers, onlays and crowns.  With the evolution of different ceramics, it has made the area of cementation somewhat confusing with questions being asked… “do I need to cement this or should I bond this?” Different cementation techniques from conventional, self-adhesive to adhesive bonding will be explained and simplified with an outline when each technique is indicated. Participants will practice what is sometimes a stressful procedure, the adhesive cementation of veneers, with useful tips and hints that will make this less nerve wracking! ...

Practical Radiography in Dental Practice
6.5 CPD Hours | Accurate radiographs are essential to make a correct diagnosis, deliver positive treatment outcomes, assess long-term results and provide medico-legal protection. This course will look at the opportunities and challenges of 2D and 3D imaging. Conventional 2D images remain the mainstay of dental treatment with film, digital sensors or phosphor plate options. Digital systems used correctly reduce radiation exposure and the need for manual processing of traditional film. This course will use two holders that operate across all 2D platforms and give you the results you need and want, including perhaps the most difficult requirement, taking an accurate and repeatable endodontic image with rubber dam in place. The objective of the 2D part of the course is to demonstrate simple clinical techniques to achieve this aim for all teeth and under all clinical situations. The 2D discussion will also include techniques and interpretation of OPG images.  3D or CBCT imaging is the most exciting development in dental radiology today. This part of the course will stress the advances in diagnosis and treatment planning that CBCT provides. Learn how to interpret CBCT images and use generic imaging software to its maximum advantage. Emphasis will be placed on recognising the difference between artifacts and pathological conditions and understanding the medical implications of 3D imaging. Testimonials from 2020 Attendees "Steve and Pete are very knowledgeable and make the topics very easy to understand. One of the best courses I have done with ADA NSW" “Well organised course, very easy to understand"   ...

Basic Orthodontics for Paediatric and General Dentist
13.0 CPD Hours | Paediatric and General Dental specialists are often curious if they would enjoy offering orthodontic treatment to selected patients in their practices.  In today’s competitive practice environment, the practitioner is often overwhelmed by the types and number of different orthodontic courses available. In order to be effective in achieving ideal results for your patients the modern practitioner must be knowledgeable and experienced in all facets of dentistry.   In orthodontics it is important to understand details of differential diagnosis, prognosis, treatment planning, treatment options, biomechanics and retention.  Many orthodontic cases can be treated by the non-specialist and many should only be treated by the specialist. By functioning together with the specialist for the good of the patient we can look forward to achieving fine results for our patient’s families. In practice on a daily basis, paediatric and general dentists encounter patient conditions including anterior and posterior cross- bites, ectopic eruption, crowding, Class II & III malocclusions, missing teeth and aesthetic situations. This two-day Introductory Orthodontics Course is specifically designed for the paediatric and general dentist looking for a sophisticated, evidence based yet clinical approach for orthodontic treatment.  Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment options, treatment mechanics, retention design, trouble-shooting and evaluation of chief complaints.  This course is not designed to give the participant the ability to treat any and all cases but rather is tailored to giving the participant insight into the possibilities of incorporating orthodontic services into their practices and what that might entail. ...
