dentistry. He brings a list of his top 5 most common errors in full arch implants that can sink a case plus his top three material choices for these restorations. What’s best, acrylic teeth popping off left and right or zirconia hybrids breaking in half? We settle all this and more-including the return of the Product of the Week…on this episode of The Dental Guys!
This week on The Dental Guys, Wes and Jon transform into Scully and Mulder for an episode of “The Endo Files”. It’s the week you’ve all been waiting for- we finally discuss which endo file system to use in your practice. How do you decide which system is best for you? Is there a huge difference between rotary and reciprocating files? What about lower cost alternatives? The longest root canal of your life continues this week on The Dental Guys!
On this week’s show, the Dental Guys interview Dr. Sameer Puri of Cerecdoctors.com and Spear Education. Dr. Puri has trained more cerec doctors than probably anyone in the world and knows everything there is to know about CEREC in-office milling. Can he convince the Dental Guys that CEREC is better than a dental lab…or is there more to CEREC than ROI?
It’s finally time to get a file into that tooth! It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for over the last few episodes of our series on endodontics; we actually get to do the root canal! We will discuss how to begin once you have good access. Getting to length, apex locators, and irrigants are all covered!
In this episode, we are almost ready to get a file in that tooth. But before we get to that, we have to cover anesthesia, isolation, and access. And even a bit before that, by popular demand, we open this can of worms: do you need a microscope to do quality endodontics? How do scopes compare to loupes and cone beam CT for endodontic diagnosis and treatment outcomes? We’re almost ready to break out the bleach this week on the dental guys.
Well, we have been thinking about a series on endodontics for a while now and so it begins! This is the first in a series of episodes on endo. We start with diagnosis and the science behind properly treatment planning for root canals. We will dive into controversies on use of CBCT in endodontics and discuss pain control, antibiotic use, and cracked teeth. We try to keep it relevant to the everyday decision making that we all deal with in our practices. And as always, we will try to back our discussion up with research!
You’re listening to the dental guys episode 41: “Where are the Wanna-Be’s”. Wes and Jon interview two dental students who spent a week in our offices seeing what we do. Did they learn anything? Does dental education need to change or is the foundation we receive in school enough to get you started? Is apprenticeship still the future of advanced dental training or can you learn it all on YouTube? We discuss it all this week on the dental guys!
