Tissue Responsible Dentistry - Part 1: Contemporary Concepts in Hard & Soft Tissue Management in Implant Dentistry
Implant dentistry in the esthetic zone is highly challenging. In recent years several studies, well defined approaches have been published on how to achieve pleasing outcomes. We must understand the biology of extraction sites and different treatment options for preserving or even reconstructing bony structures for predictable implant insertion. This clinical and evidence based presentation emphasizes the importance of proper 3-dimensional implant surgery and how soft tissue grafting can effect the final end result. There will be a special focus on immediate extraction site placements and surrounding tissue management as well.
Tooth Makeover to a True Smile Makeover
Dr. Warren Roberts strategically integrates facial rejuvenation with the cosmetic smile makeover using his 30+ years of dental expertise, making this a relevant issue for any dentist.
Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry
New materials, new implant designs, smarter surfaces, computer software and much more are helping us push the boundaries of what we thought “possible” in implant dentistry. Osseointegration is no longer in question. In this webinar Dr. Stanley will show you how 3D guided surgery improved the surgical time and outcome; how new regeneration materials like a- PRF and i-PRF are revolutionizing hound healing and soft tissue management; how immediate loading can be a simple procedure but most of all, how to use the best materials and technology to improve your surgical skills. By presenting some selected clinical cases, Dr. Stanley will show you what can be done with careful planning and execution in clinical implantology.
Indirect Composite Posterior Restorations: Conservative and Predictable Approach for Vital and Not-Vital Teeth
Predictable and repeatable results can be achieved through materials and clinical practices that, on one hand, preserve the original structure of the compromised tooth and, on the other hand, involve a very low biologic price. New technologies for the enamel-dentin adhesion and the continuous evolution of more sophisticated esthetic materials (composite resins and porcelains) allow the effective reaching of verifiable and predictable results. Technologies and materials have to follow an operative approach that strictly involves operative steps which have been carefully codified referring to the materials typology used from time to time.
This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines in indirect techniques for esthetic restorations using composite resins in order to reach a correct and standardized final clinical result when restoring both vital and not-vital posterior teeth.
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.
