Summary:

Since osseointegration was first introduced by Branemark, dental implants have been used increasingly to replace missing teeth. The high predictability of implant success has been well documented.

The primary failure on endosseous dental implants include improper diagnosis, treatment planning, and/or sequenceing; poor periodontal tissue management and/or maintenance; improper implant position at surgery; and aesthetic requirements of the patient not achieved. This may result because conventional panoramic and periapical radiographs provided insufficient diagnostic information for implant treatment planning.

Prosthetic Considerations with Periodontal Root Resective Therapy Part 2
The treatment of advanced furcation lesions may require the removal of a portion of the crown and its associated root, or resection of only one root from a multi rooted tooth. This resective-type of therapy is a definitive treatment because it predictably enables clinicians to better access the remaining tooth structure for periodontal and subsequent prosthetic therapy. The morphology of tooth preparation for hemisective periodontal therapy is critical to facilitate the patient's ability to perform…

3-D Smile Designing with a Functional Touch: The Dental GPS Way
In this esthetic driven era, the responsibility of delivering something that is functionally and esthetically acceptable is of utmost importance. Today , we have something called Dental GPS which is a software that is available both in a clinician version and lab version. It is not only able to help us with the simulation of the proposed results in less than 5 minutes but also able to help us print the diagnostic M lines to help us mount the casts (using a digital facebow) for 2D wax ups and / or 3D virtual wax ups for 3D printed models. This presentation will highlight the usage, simplicity and precision of planning and execution using the 3D smile design software.
