The Rationale for CBCT Images in the Dental Office

This course discusses the use of radiation within the dental office.  It has been projected that the use of CBCT imaging in dental offices has doubled in the last 20 years.  With this increase in usage, radiation exposure to the patient has also increased.  The increase in radiation requires the dental practitioner to adhere to ALADA, or As Low As Diagnostically Acceptable.  This concept states that the dental practitioner only take images that are required to diagnose a potential problem.  The Low Dose Radiation Protocol can effectively reduce the radiation exposure to the patient, while allowing the diagnostic image to remain the same quality as a regular radiation dosed image.

Ultra Low Dose CBCT: What it Means for Orthodontics

The use of CBCT in orthodontics has been a topic of much discussion and controversy, specifically, with regard to radiation dose and public health concerns. Ultra Low Dose CBCT technology is now more than ever a viable and recommended option for clinicians due to the decrease in radiation exposure to patients.  Because of this, clinicians must begin learning to use this technology and become comfortable with the manipulation of and workflow with 3D volumes.

Prophylactic Antibiotic Use in Dental Patients with Prosthetic Joints: What is the Evidence?

The 2014 Council of Scientific Affairs panel review of the evidence failed to find an association between dental procedures and prosthetic joint infection, concluding that prophylactic antibiotic use is generally not recommended prior to dental procedures. This course will explore why this clinical recommendation should be integrated with the practitioner's professional judgment and the patient's needs and preferences. Additionally, information pertaining to the appropriate-use criteria on prophylactic antibiotic use in dental patients with prosthetic joints will be presented.
