Composites in the 3D World - Ease, Strength and Beauty - Part 2 of 3

Description:
Composite is the most versatile cosmetic restorative material we have in a comprehensive, esthetic minimally invasive dental practice. It is easily sculptable to gain the proper contour, has great strength were clinically indicated and can attain the appropriate color, luster and polish for a beautifully seamless restoration. Revisit skills in direct composite restorations such as layering with the aid of a matrix, which allows for a more ideal 3D undetectable restoration. Custom characterization and finishing and polishing will also be included. Cerec and its advanced technology has opened a whole new window to explore in the 3D world. A new completely innovative concept of 3D indirect composite restorations will be shared. Using Cerec technology to scan, design and mill a core is the starting point. Then using many of the composite skill of the direct world and one is able to attain the 3 C's of composite-- ideal color, contour and creativity. Join me as I explore the 3D world of composites.

Minimally Invasive Restorations through Maximum Visualization
This presentation will highlight providing minimally invasive restorations for patients, aided through technology such as magnification, illumination, percussion diagnostics and current dental material choices. Of critical importance today is the realization that patients are living longer and want to retain their teeth for a lifetime. With these factors in mind, the preservations of tooth structure is even more critical today than in former generations. For restoration longevity of minimally invasive restorations there must be a commitment to precision aided by magnification, understanding the physical properties of materials, controlling and managing the occlusal forces, learning how to measure and monitor the mechanical stability of tooth and implant stability with new technology breakthroughs and preventive control instructions.

Minimally Invasive Oral Rehabilitation... No More Crowns Please Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Oral Rehabilitation... No More Crowns Please
Many patients are in need of oral rehabilitation but cannot afford it, and we see them suffer and deteriorate feeling helpless. The traditional full mouth rehabilitation, is often excessive (it is extremely rare when a patient really needs a full mouth), and because is expensive, it is rarely accepted. Additionally most commonly crowns are used for rehabilitation, specially on patient with parafunctions. In this eye opening presentation, Dr. Ruiz demonstrates how adhesive dentistry breaks many of the rules we have been taught, as well as the importance of proper occlusal management.

Retrospective Analysis of 26 Complete-Arch Implant-Supported Monolithic Zirconia Prostheses with Feldspathic Porcelain Veneering Limited to the Facial Surface
The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinical performances of 26 implant-supported, complete-arch, monolithic zirconia restorations with facial feldspathic porcelain veneers for the rehabilitation of completely edentulous patients. Eighteen patients were treated with a total of 26 complete-arch fixed prostheses. The mean follow-up time was 20.9 months. In total, 154 implants were placed supporting 309 retainers and pontics. The results of this retrospective evaluation showed that monolithic zirconia restorations with facial porcelain veneer provided satisfactory clinical performance and suggest that these rehabilitations are a viable treatment option for completely edentulous patients.
