Welcome to the Classroom
The Biologic Basis of Dentistry - Biologic Concepts and Materials (BASES) in Clinical Practice 
Presenter: Dr. Mark Cannon Release Date: 10/11/22
Credits: 1 CEU, Free Self-Study Expiration Date: 10/11/25
AGD Subject Code: 780 Reviewed: 2024        

Over the last few years much has changed in healthcare. Because we have been naturally overwhelmed by pandemic news, newly published research on the importance of the oral gateway microbiome in systemic health was scarcely noticed. In addition, oral health professionals found that our preventive care protocols needed substantial updating. Many patients had significant dental issues during the “lock-down” and our practices are still catching up on delayed dental treatment. Fortunately, improved dental biological materials that are kind to the pulp, with the potential to stimulate reparative dentin by providing calcium ions and an alkaline environment, are commercially available. In addition, bulk fill resin based composite restorative increase dentists’ efficiency and improve clinical outcomes. Universal adhesives provide for consistent and reliable bond strengths. Hence, the future for oral healthcare professionals appears optimistically bright.

During this CE webinar, the the participant will learn:
• Current research on the new axis of disease
• Successful methods for placing restorations in the pediatric patient
• To identify the ionic exchange benefits of biologic materials not only for pulpal vitality but also for prevention of micro-leakage and recurrent caries
• Newer biointeractive materials will be discussed and clinical procedures for both the biologic and bulk fill materials demonstrated   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
