Bisphosphonates and Their Impact on Patient Treatment
There has been increasing discussion concerning a variety of implications for patients who have been administered bisphosphonates, which are FDA-approved chemical agents used in the treatment of osteoporosis, metastatic cancer involving the bone, and Paget's disease. I The first report of the biological characteristics of bisphosphonates was published in 1968, when scientists discovered that bisphosphonates have a marked ability to inhibit bone resorption. Bisphosphonates suppress or reduce bone…

An Expression of Your Vision: High-Quality Photography
Digital photography is common in many of today’s
dental practices, and high-quality dental images are
paramount for laboratory communication and marketing
dentistry. The purpose of this article is to define
what a high-quality dental image is, and to give
an overview of what these images are used for. In this article I will briefly go over all the steps involved in making these images and review in detail the equipment, camera settings, techniques, and post-production workflow using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
The Proof is in the Laboratory; A Maxillary Full Arch Implant Supported Zirconia Prettau Comparison
The FP-3 “Implant Supported Hybrid" has proven to be an exceptional and highly specialized treatment option for patients with non restorable teeth or existing edentulism. The use of zirconia provides the ultimate outcome bringing with it a new standard of esthetics, function and, when done well, a long lasting prosthesis. This presentation will stress the importance of treatment planning, CAD CAM technology, and the all important need for the laboratory technician’s human touch. Surgical aspects, provisonalization during healing, and management of soft tissue are important components. The protocol for final fabrication of the FP-3 all zirconia prosthesis is detailed along with a description of this exciting new technology.
The Expanding Role of DNA and Bacterial Identification in Perio Therapy - Part 1 of 2
This lecture will highlight the specific role of Salivary Diagnostics in a Clinical practice which includes an evaluation of PPT (periodontal pathogens), PST (genetic periodontal susceptibility) as well as the presence of HPV (human pappiloma virus) and how to best incorporate it into your clinical practice.
Effective Treatment for Herpetic or Traumatized Oral Lesions
In this tip of the week, Dr. Sergio Rubinstein shares his clinical experience with Proginicin in the treatment of herpetic or ulcerative oral lesions and soft tissue healing.
Photo/Video Documentation in Dentistry: The MicroVision Approach
In this webinar I will speak about correct choice of equipment, settings and protocol of photo/video documentation in every day practice of a dentist. Also we will describe benefits of using microscope for documentation goals.
CAD CAM Dentistry for Teeth and Implants
This webinar will discuss options for Cad/Cam fabrication of ceramic restorations for teeth and implants. The technologies available today can give the same aesthetic restorations with half the time, and half the visits. The software capabilities are available for all types of restorations. All the different types of scanners will be discussed and how they are used in a prosthetic private practice. Various CAD - ceramic materials allow the clinician to get high translucency, high flexural strength and excellent marginal integrity.
Esthetic Rehabilitation for Severe Worn Dentition
This presentation covers the importance of differential analysis of the worn dentition, treatment plan and treatment sequence of the esthetic rehabilitation in severely worn dentition patients. Speakers will also explain how to harmonize the smile design of anterior restorations with the functional occlusion of posterior restorations, including the relation of temporomandibular component and the anterior guidance design with all-ceramic restorations as the material of choice.
