Alternative Design for Resin Bonded Bridges: A Clinical Report

Description:
When replacing missing teeth, resin bonded fixed partial dentures (RBFPDs) are a routine, minimally invasive option for patients that cannot or will not move forward with surgical interventions. Debonding of RBFPDs, however, remains a significant clinical problem. In this clinical report, novel RBFPD designs are presented, to improve retention and esthetics.

Wendy, Prudent approach with Great esthetic result - no real potential morbidity or loss of non renewable tooth structure The adhesive approach is a well documented technique with remarkable recorded longevity and today all too often overlooked as a viable tooth replacement option

So clever. How do you choose one over another.

OCCLUSION: Can We Possibly Simplify It? - Part 2
Over the past 20 years, many of us have been confused, frustrated, unsure and crazy about ... “How do I get my occlusion philosophy on the right path?” At NYU FMR we have developed tried and true techniques that are guaranteed to make you understand occlusion, contact points and mandibular movement that makes sense, is easy to diagnose and systematically treat with success. In addition being comfortable Restoring OVD, understanding TMJ joint position and treating the worn dentition. Using our SOT methods and Level 1-10 Occlusion Classification we can show you how to become successful in the “Occlusion” of your patients.

Color in Esthetics: The Science Behind Beauty
This presentation will be very different from programs in color matching, communication and reproduction of natural teeth that you may have attended in the past. The didactic part will emphasize the nature, principles and fundamentals of color, and tools that are essential to master a plan for successful color matching in both office and dental laboratory, together with step-by-step instructions. Examples and practical suggestions will be provided, including the latest changes recommended by the presenter. Dental Color Matcher, a color education and training program for esthetic dentistry authored by the presenter and used by dental professionals and students in 100+ countries, will be demonstrated.

Technical Diagnostics and Esthetic Team Approach Premium Member Content

Technical Diagnostics and Esthetic Team Approach
Great improvements have been made in the field of esthetic restorations in the last few years. This evolution derives not only from esthetic requirements of the patient, but also from a good relationship between the dentist and the technician. The objective of this topic is to provide valuable information to support the prosthodontic team in the treatment of the various clinical cases. Detailed analysis of the most significant clinical and technical procedures will be described, beginning with the clinical diagnosis and subsequent diagnostic wax up, then progressing to the correct use of the provisional restorations,which are fundamental in the conditioning and correct development of the soft tissues, as well as in the achievement of the functional and esthetic objectives.

Back to the Future: Feldspathic Veneers & Zirconia Layering Techniques Premium Member Content

Back to the Future: Feldspathic Veneers & Zirconia Layering Techniques
Full monolithic zirconia with external stain technique is one of the popular preference techniques used today. There are many selections of multi-layered zirconia disks and blocks available in the market, which enable dental technicians to produce faster and more esthetic results. When it comes to anterior fabrication, however, full monolithic is not always the best option to process the case. There are many varieties; unique translucencies and characterization that can be seen naturally, making it nearly impossible to achieve with just an external stain technique. That is to say, in order to achieve a natural and lifelike fabrication, a layering technique must be done. This lecture will speak about all ceramic layering technique with current technology of digital tools and how these technologies may be able to assist us.

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants
Precise fit between dental implants and the superstructure is important for the long term success of implants and implant-supported prostheses. One factor which may influence the accuracy of the definitive prosthesis is the stability of the impression coping in polymerized impression material. In some circumstances, an implant must be placed well below the gingival margin, meaning that most of the impression coping will also be situated subgingivally with no contact with the impression material. This can result in reduced stability of the impression coping, allowing it to rotate when fastening the implant analog. This article describes a simple technique that involves the use of a roll of composite resin, tray adhesive, and a small amount of occlusal registration material applied around a transfer coping in a direct implant impression.
