  • ‘Instant Rejuvenation’: Popular Cosmetic Procedures for OMS Practices - On Demand Access

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Demand for cosmetic facial surgery has increased over the last 20 years among U.S. consumers. Oral and maxillofacial training programs are now including facial cosmetic surgery procedures and principles among their curriculum and scope of training.

Instead, there has been a rise in seeking no-downtime and inexpensive options that have little to no recovery. The focus of this 60-minute surgical webinar will be on facial cosmetic procedures that are considered non-invasive with immediate patient results and gratification with discussions on botulinum toxins, fillers, non-ablative laser skin treatments and a skin health program. The webinar also will focus on the establishment and marketing of a cosmetic practice for the contemporary oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Code: WCE200812R

  • Telehealth in the OMS Practice

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Telehealth, including teledentistry and telemedicine, involves caring for patients remotely rather than during an in-person visit. The services may take many forms depending on the individual situation. This is a valuable method for caring for patients. Correct coding, supporting documentation and correct billing elements are very important to understand but can be very confusing.

  • Medication-related Osteonecrosis of the Jaws: Update

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ) is an enigmatic pathologic entity of equivocal etiology and pathophysiology. Once considered a complication directly attributable to bisphosphonate medications, the specialty now recognizes the association of other medication classifications, including the RANKL inhibitors, anti-angiogenic agents and several traditional chemotherapeutic agents. In addition, the patient's medical comorbidity – including the existence of cancer, metastatic disease, diabetes, obstructive lung disease and social habits such as smoking – are recognized as contributors to the development of this wound-healing dilemma, most often initiated by a traumatic incident such as tooth extraction. The introduction and timing of conservative therapy of this disease continues to be discussed as well as the role and success of surgical resection of the focus of osteonecrosis. Moreover, strategies to prevent MRONJ in patients exposed to antiresorptive and anti-angiogenic therapy must be discussed to reduce the morbidity experienced by patients treated with these medications. In the final analysis, MRONJ is preventable, resectable and reconstructable in a very predictable fashion. These concepts will be reviewed while the educational gap is narrowed,and the fear experienced by medical and dental professionals in their treatment of patients who require medications associated with this pathologic process is reduced.
