Week in Review: Decreasing sedation incidents; CDA Presents videos on implants and anesthesia

Dear DrBicuspid Member,

New training simulation equipment, new technology, revised sedation guidelines, and a focus on evidence and prevention rather than blame are among the ways dentists, dental organizations, and dental boards could work to decrease the likelihood of patient sedation deaths, according to ADA spokesperson Dr. Joel Weaver. Read our interview with Dr. Weaver here.

DrBicuspid.com brings you exclusive video interviews from the California Dental Association's CDA Presents 2016 conference in San Francisco. In this video, Dr. Peter Karsant speaks about narrow-diameter implants. Watch it here.

In another exclusive video from CDA Presents, dental hygienist Katherine Soal speaks about local anesthesia. Watch it here.

We'll continue to bring you coverage from CDA Presents 2016 into next week, including more video interviews and an interview with Dr. Gordon Christensen.

Also featured this week on DrBicuspid.com is a new column by Dr. Alvin Danenberg. We've seen numerous treatment and technological advances in oral healthcare, he notes. While he celebrates these advances and their impact on oral health, what he'd like to see is an emphasis on teaching patients the real causes of tooth decay and gum disease. As he writes, eliminate the cause of a disease and you eliminate the disease. Read his column here.
