Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: How to Treat What You See - Treatments of Common Pathologies Found in the Oral Cavity utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

What to do with what you see in the mouth? This course compares various dental presentations including periodontal diseases, tooth resorptions, overbites, under bites, mandibular maxillary asymmetry, oral masses, and fractured teeth. It illustrates the various conditions and describes the treatment for those conditions. Simplifying procedural approaches and “treating what you see” can greatly improve the health of the mouth and long-term health of the patient.

At the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • discuss the presentation of several dental conditions and diseases
  • compare and contrast healthy conditions vs. diseased conditions
  • outline treatments and procedures for the various dental presentations
  • discuss medications and therapies related to the care of various dental presentations
