Creating Tooth to Face Proportion in One Visit

Description:
This video illustrates a conservative technique for proportioning teeth to improve the smile and facial appearance as well. The goal in interpersonal contact is to be able to maintain eye to eye contact. However, when a tooth or teeth are out of proportion such as crowded, it becomes more difficult to maintain the eye to eye contact. The solution in this case is cosmetic contouring or reshaping the crowded teeth which provides an immediate esthetic result.

Very informative presentation Dr. Goldstein! I especially like how you explain in very simple terms to this patient even though she is you chairside assistant. Always a pleasure and learning experience to here and watch you!

Dr Goldstein, congratulations on this magnificent presentation. Very human on your approach, and lots of expertise thrown on all the detail management of the case. Superb!

Thanks, Filipe, I agree with you and hope more dentists will begin to realize that factor. I have seen a number of orthodontists who feel when they achieve good occlusion they have done their job. Unfortunately, extracting 4 bicuspids to get a better occlusion but having the face collapse is not the ideal solution by any means in my opinion.

Dear Ronald thank you for such a wonderful demo and so clarifying. Tooth to face proportion should be the constant "CPR" on Dentistry Faculties. Just beautiful. Filipe Lopes.

Wisam, My routine is if there is sensitivity I suggest the patient use Pro Enamel toothpaste, or I will give them a tube of MI Paste(GC) and suggest they use a bead of it on their toothbrush 2 to 3 times daily. However, sensitivity is a rare occurance with me since I am careful especially when I am getting close to dentin.

Wisam Ibrahim - (12/6/2013 3:45 AM)

Dear Dr Ronald Goldstein great presentation just like every time kindly clarify the problem of postoperative sensitivity and how to overcome after the treatmnet

Occlusion: What Else? Premium Member Content

Occlusion: What Else?
Occlusion-Confusion, most of the dentist feel this way. Occlusion is one of the most important part of dentistry but also the most controversy. The balance and the restore of function of the stomatognathic system is often an everyday challenge during most dental treatments. For these two distinct reasons the dentist needs to study and fully understand the normal function of the TMJoints, understand how the mandible rests against the cranium in a most favourable position, and of course how occlusion and any dental prosthetic restorations should be adjusted without jeopardising the stability of the stomatognathic system.

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.

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia Premium Member Content

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

Range & Mean Distribution Frequency of Individual Tooth Width of the Maxillary Anterior Dentition

Range & Mean Distribution Frequency of Individual Tooth Width of the Maxillary Anterior Dentition
Proper diagnosis of tooth size for each patient is critical in treatment planning for aesthetic restorative dentistry. The goal of this study was to determine the clinically relevant range and mean distribution frequency of individual tooth width of the maxillary anterior dentition within a given population of patients. Mean values for restoration of tooth size were not interchangeable for the different group size of patients or respective tooth groups. The results of this study suggest that there exists a range value of maxillary anterior tooth width for both males and females. Gender differences are a critical factor in restoring an aesthetically pleasing smile.
