Why Choose Hands-On Dental Courses?

Dental ContinuumSchool is a time of life we all have to go through growing up, but we don’t all have the same experience. Some have trouble with tests, others have difficulty when it comes to remembering facts. No matter the experience, advancing our knowledge is something we all strive to do. When continuing our education, there are many ways we can now learn. Lecture halls, online courses and hands on lab sessions are all options these days when it comes to going back to school. Aesthetic Advantage offers a variety of continuing dental courses to expand your dental repertoire, including hands on dental courses. But why choose going with hands-on, as opposed to the more traditional way of learning? The professionals of Aesthetic Advantage list the following advantage of hands on dental courses:

  • Individuals who learn in a hands-on learning environment are more likely to remember the material better, making your success rate a lot higher.
  • Studies show that hands-on courses motivate individuals to actively engage in their learning and improve their skills, as opposed to relying on the written word or a lecture.
  • Hands-on dental courses allow individuals to discuss any misconceptions they have on the material, providing people with the right guidance in order to be successful in all fields of dentistry.

You Learn Something New Everyday

Continuing your career in dentistry after required education is over is very important. When you take into consideration how the world of dentistry is constantly changing and growing over time, there is a clear reason to continue in dental education. Not only are you strengthening your overall skillset, but you are also ensuring that your patients are getting the best, most up-to-date treatment on the market.

Continuing dental education is essential for anyone working within the dental field. Just like the medical field, technological advances prove to come at a constant speed, and if not studied and kept up with, the science of it all is lost altogether. Ongoing training for dental professionals is incredibly important, so important that most states require that dentists and hygienists complete a certain number of dental continuing education activities each year in order to remain licensed.

For a dentist currently in practice, continuing dental education can only be beneficial for them as well as their patients. Ongoing education ensures that his or her patients have access to the latest diagnostic, preventative and treatment methods.

Join us at the Aesthetic Advantage Hands-on Continuum, at the Rosenthal Institute, New York College of Dentistry. We have an extensive 4 day program that is spread over two weekends, focusing on comprehensive aesthetic and restorative dentistry. All participants will gain knowledge of restorative and comprehensive cases; become efficient in treatment planning and case presentation; and establish the skills needed to preform top-notch aesthetic dentistry with increased confidence. All participants will have the opportunity to work hands on with patients, or choose the options to oversee 10-15 cases being treated from start to finish.

Lectures will include:

  • Step-by-step Prep Techniques
  • Smile Design Principles
  • Impression and Cementation Techniques
  • Patient Management
  • Treatment Planning
  • Material Selection
  • Lab Communication for more Predictable Results
  • Cementation
  • Occlusion
  • Advanced Cases
  • Marketing and Practice Management

Our hands-on program gives you the unique opportunity to be exposed to top speakers, learn cutting edge aesthetic procedures and techniques and be mentored by our clinical faculty. Let us infuse your practice with enthusiasm, positive energy and the necessary skills to become more confident and passionate about dentistry, setting your practice apart from others your industry.

Restoration of the severely worn dentition is one of the most challenging procedures in dentistry. In order to successfully restore and maintain the teeth, one must gain insight into how the teeth arrived at this state of destruction. Tooth wear can result from abrasion, attrition, and erosion. Research has shown that these wear mechanisms rarely act alone and there is nearly always a combination of the processes. Evaluation and diagnosis should account for the patient’s diet, history of eating and/or gastric disorders, along with the present state of the occlusion. Emphasis must be placed on the evaluation of occlusal prematurities preventing condylar seating into the centric relation position. Behavioral factors that may contribute to parafunctional habits and/or nocturnal bruxism are also important to understand and manage in order to successfully restore and maintain a healthier dentition. Once a complete understanding of the etiology of the dentition’s present state is appreciated, a treatment plan can be formulated, taking into account the number of teeth to be treated, condylar position, space availability, the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO), and the choice of restorative material.

While all occlusions wear to some degree over the lifetime of the patient, normal physiological wear usually does not require correction. Severe or excessive wear refers to tooth destruction that requires restorative intervention. Severe attritional wear can result from occlusal prematurities that prevent functional or parafunctional movements of the jaw. This wear can be seen at the site of the prematurity or on the anterior teeth as a result of the “hit and slide” forward. Restoration of the worn anterior teeth then becomes a challenge as space availability for prosthetics becomes limited. If lengthening the teeth is a goal in order to achieve a more aesthetic smile, then the question of the need to alter VDO subsequently arises.
