Very Good. Thanks for sharing Dr. Salama..

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

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!

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

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?

The Role of Occlusion in Implant Prosthetics Premium Member Content

The Role of Occlusion in Implant Prosthetics
In this presentation Dr. Carlo Poggio delves into the biomechanics and clinical relevance of proper occlusal management in implant dentistry. Combining a thorough review of the literature with clinical dental applications, Dr. Poggio attempts to suggest a rational for designing the occlusion for implant restorations. Topics covered include comparison of occlusal management for teeth and implants. In addition, the importance of controlling the occlusal forces to protect the bone-implant interface from overload and the role of occlusion in peri-implant microbial infection.

Bonding and Cementing Zirconia Restorations: Current Clinical and Scientific Information
Zirconia continues to play a significant role in modern restorative dentistry. From Implants to abutments all the way to frameworks and monolithic crowns. How we manage the process of bonding and cementing these restorations is extremely important to their long term retention and success. This presentation highlights the different approaches available today and specifically defines protocols with clinically relevant research.

A Multi-faceted Treatment Approach for Anterior Reconstructions Using Current Ceramics, Implants and Adhesive Systems

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.
