Great Thanks

Ricardo Orlando - (11/5/2015 1:37 PM)

Very Good. Thanks for sharing Dr. Salama..

Maurice Salama - (1/9/2013 8:15 PM)

Saverio; Many thanks. Multiple options here. You can temporize and prep just down to new gingival margin or you can provide a vacuform matrix with dentin sealant to address sensitivity issues prior to final preparation at 3 months. Yes, look forward to Birmingham, England next month. See you there. Dr. Salama

SAVERIO ACCARDI - (1/9/2013 1:23 PM)

How do you manage the root exposure in case the crown lengthening involved a hgher display of root surface in terms of aesthetics(especially for high smile line) and sensitivity? Would you recommend to provide provisionals just after crown lengthening or alternatively relining the cervical margin of provisionals? Many thanks Dr Salama, can' t wait to see you 3D in Birmingham!

Maurice Salama - (8/14/2012 5:20 PM)

Daniel and Mateo; many thanks for your posts. Yes, sterile water through handpiece in surgical operatory or spearate sterile water source through monoject syringe.
thanks Dr. Salama

Emilio Mateo - (8/14/2012 12:01 PM)

muy bello quedo el caso! el paciente debe estar muy complacido.. usted es uno de mis mejores mentores!!

Daniel Ardelean - (5/16/2012 12:02 AM)

What type of water do you use through your surgical handpiece? Is it sterile saline? Is that line dedicated to sterile saline only? Thank you. (I do general dentistry and surgeries, and I have always used a syringe for surgeries due to sterility, but find it very difficult to achieve copious irrigation with just a syringe in this instance ) What do you recommend?

Digital Smile Design and 3D Printing of Treatment Provisionals in Modern Dental Practice
The DSD Concept 2D is the portal to Digital Dentistry and Digital Workflow. Utilizing Facial Aesthetics as a starting point and ending with a functional, aesthetic and emotionally fulfilling Smile designed with Natural Algorithms via Keynote and translated via a DSD Planning Center into a 3D printed Wax-Up, or Full Arch Implant Guides and Conversion Smile. DSD protocol is special in that it fosters True “Team Synergy” between the Restorative Dentist to Laboratory and Specialist. This results in more predictable treatment outcomes from simple Smile Cases to Full Mouth Rehabilitations involving natural teeth to dental implants. Finally, by learning DSD’s unique connection to the Emotional component of Dentistry, you will gain skills on how to Consult, Present, and Gain High Levels of Case Acceptance.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

Clinical Excellence in Operative Dentistry: Not Only A Question of Color & Fancy Trends
Nowadays the maintenance of “a nice smiling” represents the main desire of our patients and the request for tooth colored restorations is very high. 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-dentinal adhesion and the continuous evolution of more sophisticated esthetic materials as composite and porcelains allow the effective reaching of verifiable and predictable results. This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines in both direct and indirect techniques for esthetic restorations through the evaluation of techniques and materials in order to reach correct, standardized and long lasting evidence based clinical results.

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.

Merging Orthodontics & Esthetic Dentistry for the Anterior Zone. A Complete Clinical & Laboratory Perspective
Skeletal & dental problems are treated through orthodontics & orthognatic surgery prior to periodontal plastic surgery & finally high quality restorative dentistry gives the final touch to our cases. Extensive details of the ceramic laboratory work will be explained & illustrated for preserving as much as possible tooth structure. The complete management of anterior veneers & metal free crowns will be explained in detail. Color & shapes are an integral part of this webinar. Individualizing solutions for each patient is the key to veneers & crowns looking as close as possible to natural teeth. The orthodontist, ceramist and restorative dentist merge art & science for the best possible results. The protocol for long term care of these anterior esthetic restorations will be presented.

A Multi-faceted Treatment Approach for Anterior Reconstructions Using Current Ceramics, Implants and Adhesive Systems
Of all developments in dental technology, fulfilling the esthetic and functional demands of a patient is still a challenge for both dentists and dental technicians. This becomes more difficult for patients with a previous treatment history that is not ideal. This case presentation demonstrates reconstruction of an anterior zirconia resin-bonded fixed dental prosthesis (RBFDP) for the mandible with a combined treatment approach utilizing veneers for harmonized space distribution on the abutment teeth and an implant-supported zirconia fixed dental prosthesis in the anterior segment of the maxilla. Adhesive cementation if the restorations is also presented in a step-by-step approach based on the current state of the art.

Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes

Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes
This article demonstrates the importance of proper surgical and prosthetic principles in achieving esthetic implant results.Successful dental implant therapy in the maxillary anterior dentition requires meticulous attention to surgical and prosthodontic measures. Proper diagnosis, extraction technique, implant selection, and placement significantly impact outcomes. Respect of hard and soft tissue physiology following tooth loss and implant placement requires specific steps be taken. Management tissue contours properly, via regenerative therapy, results in successful framing of the restoration. Provisionalization and definitive restorative therapy also impacts the level of esthetic success.The contours of the temporary abutment and crown develop soft tissue contours for the final restoration. Overcontouring can lead to soft tissue recession and mucosal asymmetry. Design of the definitive crown(s) is crucial for long-term maintenance of esthetically acceptable results.
