Evidence-based woo-woo: is there a place for complementary therapies in dentistry? An introductory guide for dental practitioners
Natural therapies are booming and patients are increasingly asking – or telling – dental practitioners about alternative theories and treatments for oral disease and care. We can no longer dismiss these discussions. This three hour presentation will explore a comparative overview of popular health paradigms – naturopathy, oriental medicine, ayurveda, kinesiology, chiropractic and osteopathy with western medical science. This will give practitioners a better understanding of the strengths, challenges and differences of each for dental applications. An evidence-based evaluation of commonly suggested complementary therapeutic products associated with oral care, whitening, teething, oral inflammation and infection management products will be presented. Some myths will be busted and some novel uses described to add to your clinical dental toolkit. You’ll be guided through an introduction to oriental tongue diagnosis you can use for clinical assessment in your practice. You’ll be provided with key messaging to help you engage more confidently with these types of conversations in your daily work. There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the conclusion of the presentation.

Zygomatic implants and all on four mainteance protocols 

As our population increases in age along with social and oral health expectations the amount of single tooth, full arch and complex full mouth rehabilitations using implants increases. As clinicians  we need to be able to educate on options and the post care requirements of single implants to full arch cases. 

Success of an implant has many factors, host response, surgeon skill, prosthetic  design and post placement care both at home and professional maintenance.The lecture will go over implant options and maintenance protocols for full arch fixed appliances and zygomatic implants.
