03/11/16    David Landwehr –    State of the Art Endodontics: Diagnosis to Restoration

As a leading practitioner, educator and speaker, David Landwehr, D.D.S., M.S. serves as a frequent lecturer and teacher for a variety of organizations at dozens of events around the country each year focusing on dentistry, endodontics and oral pathology. Dr. Landwehr’s ongoing work as an opinion leader has positioned him at the forefront of modern endodontic treatment.

A Wisconsin native, Dr. Landwehr studied as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and went on to earn his D.D.S. at the University of Minnesota in 1994. From there, he earned an M.S. degree and certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology at The Ohio State University followed by specialty training in Endodontics at the University of Michigan.

Since returning to Wisconsin in 1999, Dr. Landwehr has provided exemplary care to patients in a private practice setting, most recently at Capital Endodontics in Madison. Though his daily work focuses on endodontics, his dual certification makes him uniquely qualified to diagnose sources of oral pain. He has presented case studies and research findings both nationally and internationally, published several articles in peer-reviewed journals and served as an evidence reviewer for the American Dental Association.

Dr. Landwehr is an advocate and Key Opinion Leader for Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties, the largest and most innovative developer of endodontic instruments and technologies. He also served as Chief of Endodontics for the Meriter Hospital general practice residency for more than 10 years.

January Course Objectives

01/08/16: Dr. Jeffrey Rouse  DDS

Dr. Rouse maintains a full-time private practice limited to Prosthodontics. He received his specialty certificate in Prosthodontics from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio where he serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Prosthodontics. He has published on numerous topics ranging from porcelain laminate veneers to dentist-patient communication. He has lectured both nationally and internationally on a wide range of subjects including aesthetic diagnosis, anterior and posterior bonded restorations, and the Perio-Restorative interface. He is a member of several organizations including the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry, and the Southwest Academy of Restorative Dentistry.

AM – Can I Ask a Question About Implants?

Having restored subperiosteal, transmandibular, blades and all forms of endosseous implants over the past 25 years, Dr Rouse has created a lecture where many unanswered questions can be answered…”bar or attachment”,“single crowns or multi-unit”, “prefabricated or custom abutment”,  “cement or screw retained”, “hybrid or overdenture”, etc.,etc.,etc. While it is intuitive that a single implant cannot be appropriate for every case, implant prosthodontics has become one size fits all. Each implant design has inherent prosthetic benefits and limitations. This lecture classifies the implant systems based on the prosthetic connection and discusses case types best served by each design.

Attendees will learn:

  1. Implant platform requirements for improved prosthetic predictability in cases involving single teeth up to full arches.
  2. Benefits of custom abutments over prefabricated and why it is more affordable than most think
  3. Implant overdenture designs and how they differ between maxilla and mandible
  4. Cement or screw retain…or both?

PM –  Global Diagnosis and Sleep Prosthodontics: Blending the How and the Why

The most difficult cases in dentistry involve worn and/or fractured teeth. With wear comes a change in the dentoalveolar complex and the tooth. This course provides both a systematic approach to the interdisciplinary diagnosis and sequential treatment of these complex cases and a unique insight into the triggering factors leading to the damage. Dr Rouse will present a diagnostic method based on the concept of “global” diagnosis.  The guidelines will be distilled into the “Five Questions” required to diagnose and provide interdisciplinary treatment of the worn smile. He will expand the lecture beyond the traditional “How To” providing a provocative perspective on the “Why” questions concerning facial form, tooth wear, lip mobility, and occlusal relationships. This evidence-based analysis argues that airway maintenance elicits the confounding challenges that the Global Diagnosis highlights.

 

Attendees should learn:

  1. Use the Global Analysis measurements to produce a proper rehabilitation diagnosis
  2. Compare and contrast orthodontic intrusion/extrusion and periodontal grafting/ crown lengthening as tools for correcting gingival architecture deficiencies
  3. Understand the different sleep breathing disorders and their potential relationship to craniofacial and dental alteration

October 9 Course Details
