Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis: A Review for Dental Professionals, 2nd Edition

Price: $29.95 
Item # L0779  

Release Date: July 30, 2013

Review Date: September 7, 2016

Expiration Date: September 6, 2019

 

Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) – also known as recurrent aphthous ulcerations, aphthous ulcerations, and canker sores – is a chronic inflammatory disease that is characterized by painful oral ulcers that recur with varying frequency. Although the etiology of RAS is multifactorial, it has been linked to decreased levels of folic acid and other hematologic deficiencies, including deficiencies in vitamin B12, iron, and ferritin. Hematologic deficiencies may be a significant risk factor for RAS.

Numerous medical conditions, as well as certain medications taken over long periods, can also cause RAS. When a patient is experiencing these painful ulcerations, the dental professional must have sufficient knowledge to identify the predisposing factors for RAS and make the connection between the occurrence of RAS and certain medical conditions or medication usage.

After reviewing the etiology and symptoms of RAS, as well as the predisposing factors for development of these oral ulcerations, this basic-level course outlines the process for diagnosing RAS and the treatments currently available for the different types of RAS.

Dental Implants: Complications and Peri-Implant Diseases, 2nd edition

Price: $29.95 
Item # L0893  

Review Date: July 11, 2018

Expiration Date: July 11, 2021

Original Release Date: June 26, 2015

Dental implants are an established treatment modality in dentistry with a high rate of success and few complications. However, complications do occur despite careful treatment planning and meticulous execution of clinical procedures. Surgical complications that can occur include infection, bleeding, wound dehiscence, primary instability of the implant, neurosensory changes, and tissue emphysema. After the implant is osseointegrated, other complications may arise, including inflammatory peri-implant lesions. All these conditions increase the risk of poor outcomes, including implant loss. This intermediate-level course addresses complications associated with dental implants and reviews selective options for their management.
