BOTOX in Dentistry - Versatility & Therapeutic Benefits

Description:
Dentists are confronted every day with patients that do not respond to conventional masticatory and neuro-muscular treatments either because these treatments are ineffective, or their compliance with dental orthotics is poor, or both. Although dentists are the most highly trained injectors of the oro-facial region, they are not typically trained in the simple techniques how to inject the masticatory muscles with Botulinum toxin, to reduce and relieve the number and intensity of clenching events to lessen the destruction of tooth and TMJ structures, and reduce discomfort and pain in the associated musculature. Dr. Warren Roberts will discuss the use of Botox in the practice of dentistry to therapeutically treat these conditions, as well as how the treatment of aging soft tissue aspects associated with the smile, if addressed prior to the definitive dental cosmetics, can dramatically change the final restorative approach.

Esthetic and Functional Rehabilitation: A Case Report
Most people want to look beautiful. The ability to express feelings is fundamental to the quality of life, but expressing emotions is impossible without the freedom to smile. A patient with an ill-fitting removable denture and a fixed, porcelain-fused-to-metal bridge sought care to improve her smile. This fixed bridge was removed and direct provisional restorations placed, followed by crown-lengthening surgery and implant placement, waiting 10 months for the patient to heal. We waited one month to check occlusal stability and patient satisfaction and then made the final precision impressions and master casts. We cemented the final restorations; lithium disilicate allowed the creation of an esthetic result without sacrificing strength with use of both full-anatomy and layered techniques. Dental implants make it possible to have non-removable teeth that can be integrated esthetically and functionally, allowing the recreation of tooth color, form, and structure to reestablish a pat

RUBBERDAMology: Tips and Tricks With Isolation
It is well known that all dental work must be under full control by operator. We always try to do our best during root canal treatment, or placing composite restorations, or luting bonded ceramic constructions. We pay a lot of attention to details and procedures, learn all new aspects of operative dentistry, follow all steps and protocols but… some time do waist our invaluable time due to challenging with moisture – saliva, bleeding, tongue, chicks, lips that are often on our way to reach the goal. And this competition is always more stressful then other most important components. Fortunately we have got great assistant for this “dirty” job that gives us stress-free conditions of working, saves our time and health and gives best ergonomics. It is rubberdam. During our lecture we will open all secrets how to use this most helpful system in operative dentistry controlling our main task – treatment.

CAD/CAM Anterior Esthetic Implant Restorations: The BellaTek Encode Healing Abutment and CAD-Block Ceramics

CAD/CAM Anterior Esthetic Implant Restorations: The BellaTek Encode Healing Abutment and CAD-Block Ceramics
Digital design software programs for teeth and implant restorations have evolved over the past 5 years. Using CBCT scans and digital preoperative scans, the clinician can properly plan the placement of implant fixtures. Various software programs and intraoral scanners offer analysis of proper implant position, angle of implant placement, and depth of tissue and occlusal clearance. The utilization of coded healing abutments (BellaTek®, Encode®, Biomet 3i) may also add to the precision of design and calibration of all tissue contacting points of the emerging abutment. This article will introduce and describe a current model for fabrication of ideal abutments, and fabrication of CAD/ CAM restorations for the anterior esthetic zone.

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype
The purpose of the present study was to establish whether any correlation exists between tooth shapes and patient-related factors such as gingival and periodontal characteristics. Clinical measurements, including the width and the height of maxillary central incisor crowns, the apico incisal height of the keratinized mucosa, the buccal gingival thickness (GT), the depth of the sulcus, the bone-sounding depth (BS) and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla, were investigated in 50 healthy individuals. These individuals were then divided into three groups based on the shape of their maxillary central incisor crowns: triangular; square; or square-tapered. The results of this study indicate that different tooth shapes are associated with significantly different values for the extent of the KM, its bucco-lingual thickness and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla.
