 (details)

Course Number: A302-17
Course Title: Kenneth J. Ryan, DDS Memorial Seminar – Incorporating Quality Periodontics into Comprehensive Restorative Dentistry

Course Date: January 11, 2017 (Wednesday)

Dr. Samuel Low

                                                                                                                 








Course Overview:

The dental practitioner is frequently challenged when customizing periodontal treatment for the restorative patient.  The influence of patient esthetic expectations and economic considerations have complicated the decision process.  This presentation will provide the participant with user-friendly protocols and technological solutions to find and manage periodontal disease.  Take the frustration out of delivering periodontal care and gain success with patient case acceptance, tooth retention and financial reward.  This presentation unravels the complexities of achieving excellent long-term restorative results, including implant management.  Participants will have the opportunity to engage in actual patient cases through "hands on" decision making exercise.

Course Objectives:
  • Developing "realistic" non surgical therapies and the respective reevaluation with emphasis on "new" anti-inflammatory systems including micro-ultrasonics and laser technology, and nutraceuticals and probiotics and anti-oxidants. 
  • Determining the efficacy of utilizing various laser wavelengths in sulcular decontamination, degranulation, new attachment and bone regeneration.
  • Determining patient resistance/susceptibility patterns for predictable outcomes.
  • Providing a "systems" approach to assessing prognosis for restorative abutments and when to extract with resulting implant therapy.
  • Enhancing esthetic results by manipulating gingivae.
  • Establishing a quality periodontal maintenance program that enhances the restorative practice including third party reimbursement.

OP301-17 - 44th Annual Moyers Symposium "Sleep Apnea: What Every Clinician (and Patient) Should Know"
 (details)


The 44th Annual Moyers Symposium

The University of Michigan

Sleep Apnea—What Every Clinician (and Patient) Should Know

March 4-5, 2017

 

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a relatively common disorder characterized by the repeated collapse of the upper airway, resulting in sleep fragmentation and episodic hypoxemia. The consequences of untreated sleep apnea can be significant and include increased risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke, decreased quality of life and motor vehicle accidents. It is estimated that over 80% of individuals who have sleep apnea do not know that they have this medical problem, emphasizing the need for greater awareness among clinicians.

OSA has a complex multifactorial etiology and is more common in older adults who are overweight, but it can affect individuals of any age and body type. Even children, especially those with enlarged tonsillar or constricted naso-pharyngeal tissues may have obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea requires long-term management; lifestyle changes, oral appliances, surgery, and breathing devices such as CPAP can be used treat sleep apnea successfully as long as the condition is recognized.

The Moyers Symposium has had a long history of dealing with interdisciplinary topics and the 44th Annual Moyers Symposium is no exception.  We are bringing together 10 health care providers with expertise in sleep disordered breathing to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea patients, considering in detail the multiple treatment approaches that are available. Attendees may also discover that this condition is personally relevant; as the signs, symptoms and history of sleep apnea are presented.

The oral biopsy is an useful diagnostic technique that general practice clinicians may considered incorporating into their practice. We will be examining the oral biopsy armamentarium and how to handle a specimen for a successful biopsy submission. Starting with an overview of general principles of biopsy to soft tissue biopsy techniques, we then transition to a demonstration of wound closure and management of hemorrhage. Finally, we end with a hands on session practicing punch biopsies and suture techniques on porcine tissue. At the end of the course, general practitioners will be better equipped to incorporate the biopsy procedure into their expanding practice.
