Predictable Cementation of All Ceramic Dental Restorations - The "Noah" Technique Predictable Cementation of All Ceramic Dental Restorations - The "Noah" Technique

Summary:

Creation of an ideally prepared tooth and its detail being "captured" in a master impression are critical steps in the indirect dental restorative process. All can be for naught if a meticulous delivery technique is not followed. Most indirect definitive restorations are crafted with precision on carefully trimmed dies machined with pin placement to align the preparations on the cast in the exact position relative to one another as they appear in the patient’s oral cavity. The final test of accuracy, however, is in the patient’s mouth. Many times ceramic reconstructions may appear to have perfect fit and contact on the master dies relative to one another, yet require adjustment when tried-in the patient. This is to be expected from time to time when dealing with an indirect fabrication method. It is also true that multiple adjacent restorations may appear to have perfect fit and proximal contact upon try-in only to have a slightly altered fit after cementation. This can mean a remake if the restoration is placed in an improper position and it cannot be recovered before the set of the cement. Some clinicians espouse a "multiple cementation technique" placing eight to ten restorations at one time. This can often lead to a disastrous result, if even one restoration is placed in a slightly altered position affecting the correct seating of the remaining units.

A Biometric Approach To Aesthetic Crown Lengthening: Part 1 - Midfacial Considerations

A Biometric Approach To Aesthetic Crown Lengthening: Part 1 - Midfacial Considerations
Although human dental anatomy is taught in university curricula, clinicians often witness restorations that are not proportional to one another. Dental restorations should also be proportional to periodontal supporting tissues as an essential aspect of dental anatomy. Measurements can be performed directly on a patient’s teeth with aesthetic gauges used to confirm the correct position of the supporting osseous topography. This article demonstrates a technique using these gauges to objectively determine the correct position of the underlying hard tissues and render predictable, aesthetic treatment.

The Changing Paradigm of Digital Implant Dentistry: Today’s Technology and Tomorrow’s Concepts - Part 1 of 2
Digital technology has revolutionized implant dentistry but not without frustration. Recent advances with hardware, software, and materials now present integrated solutions for the implant team through planning, placement, and restoration. Single implant treatment will be presented for every-day practice, as well as more advanced partial and fully-edentulous techniques. The most efficient and precise workflows through Keystone and its industry partners will give you concrete digital solutions ready for implementation in your practice. At the conclusion of the lecture the speaker will define some different “team structures” for how the surgeon, dentist, and lab could invest in technology and work together.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.
