Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics

Description:
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.

Improving the Dentist/Technician Communication for optimum Smile Design and Ceramic Restorations
As modern dentists and dental technicians we need to keep abreast of the latest developments in dentistry and incorporate new techniques and materials into our armamentarium on an ongoing basis. Moreover, it is essential that all the team members participate proactively in the treatment planning process in order to ensure the best possible result for the benefit of the patient. Consequently, consistent interaction among the members of the dental team is required. Technicians should have a basic understanding of clinical procedures and the development of target-oriented communication protocols are essential prerequisites for a smooth workflow and the provision of high-quality service. Dentists should be aware that crucial treatment steps such as the diagnostic wax-up, the fabrication of the mock-up, shade selection, material selection, prep design, and the fabrication of temporary restorations, etc. can be greatly improved by taking into account the technician’s perspective.

Contemporary Bio-Materials and Combined Techniques for Esthetic Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Contemporary Bio-Materials and Combined Techniques for Esthetic Reconstruction
State-of-the-art technology offers conservative and esthetic alternatives to re-establish the shape and color of anterior teeth as well as the white and pink harmony. Tooth reduction for any restorative technique obliges us to be as conservative as possible. In this presentation we will share a short description of different material options developed in esthetic dentistry. We will present a case managed with a combination of techniques including: monolithic lithium-silicate ceramic veneers and cut-back/layering.

Achieving Esthetic Results Through Restorative Solutions in Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Achieving Esthetic Results Through Restorative Solutions in Implant Dentistry
In the anterior maxilla, the rehabilitation of patients with implant supported restorations is often challenging for clinicians due to the high esthetic demand expressed by patients and anatomic limitations. This lecture will concentrate on restorative treatment guidelines to achieve esthetic results in implant dentistry. It will provide solutions to improve esthetic outcome, as well as guidelines to achieve a more predictable result. In addition, evidence-based outcomes reported in the literature evaluating “Pink” implants and abutments will be discussed. This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the surgeon and restorative doctor for all restorative options in tooth replacement therapy.

Proximal Contact Areas of the Maxillary Anterior Dentition
The goal of this study was to quantify the apicoincisal extent of the proximal contact area (PCA) between the eight maxillary anterior teeth. PCAPs should be taken into consideration for clinical anterior restorations since they determine the papillary and incisal embrasures.
