Splints Are Not Just for TMJ Therapy Part II: Fabrication Technique
When only the canine or the incisors contact in lateral movement, there is a neurologic feedback mechanism that prevents excessive muscular contraction (the more teeth that contact the greater the possible contractile stress and thus muscular overload).
Guidelines for Esthetic Restorative Options
The patient with hopeless, fractured, or missing teeth within the aesthetic zone has posed a tremendous challenge for today's clinician. This article discusses "diagnostic indicators" involved during the evaluation of questionalbe teeth or edentulous spans prior to treatment planning, as well as the potential adjunctive role of orthodontics for the development of an easthetic restorative recipient site. The utilization of orthodontic extrusion in combination with atraumatic extraction and immediate…
The Role of Orthodontic Extrusive Remodeling
A classification scheme that systematizes the wide range of regenerative potential of common extraction site topographies is presented. Within this system, the parameters for immediate implant placement and preliminary ridge augmentation are discussed. In addition, a new adjunctive role for orthodontic extrusion is introduced. This approach is intended to manipulate "hopeless" teeth to modify their local defect environments, thereby enhancing the predictability of subsequent implant placement at…
Creating Physiologic Contours Using a Modified Geller Cast Technique
This article will discuss how to control the gingival contours of the final restorations in the laboratory.
Treatment Planning – A team session
Dr. Henry Salama and Dr. David Garber discuss the diagnosis as well as the possible treatment planning options to manage a deficient site prior to esthetic implant therapy.
Orthodontic Site Development in treatment of Consecutive Anterior Implants
Dr. Sivan Kars utilizes orthodontic forced eruption to develop the sites of adjacent hopeless anterior teeth prior to extraction and implant placement. Diagnosis, sequencing and timing of therapy are presented for discussion.
The Role of Orthodontics in the Interdisciplinary Management of Soft Tissue, Occlusal and Esthetic Abnormalities - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will highlight the benefits in such an interdisciplinary approach with and emphasis on the role of “directional” orthodontic tooth movement in the non-surgical enhancement of soft-and hard-tissue dimensions as part of "site development."
Smile Design and Team Work
The protocol that is presented will improve the esthetic diagnosis, the communication and the predictability of anterior ceramic restorations.
The Artist Within: How to Create Exceptional Looking Provisionals
In this webinar, Dr. Lerner will demonstrate how smile design, tooth anatomy and the shades of contour, surface texture and colour are all components of a beautiful smile.
