Diagnostic Waxing Transfer From Diagnostic Casts to Soft Tissue Definitive Casts Diagnostic Waxing Transfer From Diagnostic Casts to Soft Tissue Definitive Casts

Summary:

Fabricating quality anterior esthetic restorations, such as porcelain veneers and crowns, requires the fabrication of a soft tissue definitive cast with removable dies and a hard stone gingiva. This cast is essential to the integration of the definitive restoration with the architecture of the gingiva. It is obtained by repositioning a set of dies (trimmed as a root form with antirotation grooves) into the definitive impression, and subsequently pouring a solid base. This so-called “alveolar cast” (cast base with alveolar sockets) is not a substitute for another important cast, the solid cast, which is obtained from a single pour of the definitive impression, trimmed and mounted in an articulator.

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

Long-Term Outcome of Cemented Versus Screw-Retained Implant-Supported Partial Restorations

Long-Term Outcome of Cemented Versus Screw-Retained Implant-Supported Partial Restorations
The present study was designed to compare the long-term outcome and complications of cemented versus screw-retained implant restorations in partially edentulous patients. The long-term outcome of cemented implant-supported restorations was superior to that of screw-retained restorations, both clinically and biologically.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

Periodontal-Prosthesis in Modern Dentistry – Part 1 of 2
Clinicians must be aware of patient expectations when planning dental treatment. When full mouth reconstruction is planned, it is very important to satisfy such expectations in order to provide successful treatment. Patients are often concerned about the cost and duration of treatment, and the pain, esthetics, comfort, and function after treatment. However, we cannot assure longevity unless the treatment has a scientific basis. During reconstruction or restoration, we generally remove and replace the existing crowns. Secondary caries are mostly detected on removal of these. Due to the caries, the ferrule and tooth thickness are not adequate; and frequently, the condition may not be suitable for prosthetic treatment. In such cases, we choose to extract the tooth or perform crown lengthening to retain the tooth.Thse days many teeth that we could retain by crown lengthening procedure are replaced by implants. In this presentation, we describe some cases in which a crown lengthening proce

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.
