Analogue vs. Digital Dentistry Premium Member Content

Analogue vs. Digital Dentistry
In the progressive world of modern digital technologies, it is more apparent than ever that there is always an analogue component to the restorative clinical process. This presentation will discuss the diagnostic aspects of restorative based digital dentistry as well as the accuracy advantages to the final outcomes. Digital Smile planning, smile mockups and their critical role in minimally invasive tooth preparation  will be highlighted. Lab communication with these digital templates relay all the necessary information and provide the lab technician with  a more manageable workflow.  Accuracy, better outcomes and less invasive dentistry are the winners in this evolution.

From 2D to 3D: The Benefits of 3D X-ray in the Different Fields of General Dentistry
In the last years, a continuously rising number of companies are presenting new CBCT models on the market with a increasing variety of indications. It becomes more and more demanding for the average user to hold a overview and even more difficult to differentiate between clinically relevant facts and “marketing-driven-issues” that are claimed to these new products.

Beyond Technologies; Digital & Esthetic Dentistry
Workflow using an integrated approach with CAD/CAM, CBCT, and 3D printing will be highlighted. Learn how to integrate digital technologies for comprehensive 3D implantology including the diagnostic scan, implant planning, surgical guide design and fabrication, and the digital restoration. The concept behind full and direct restorations including immediate provisionalization and how the stitching of multiple files taken from intra-oral scans and CBCT can provide the necessary information to advance to in-office 3D printing and CEREC restorations.

CAD CAM Dentistry for Teeth and Implants Premium Member Content

CAD CAM Dentistry for Teeth and Implants
This webinar will discuss options for Cad/Cam fabrication of ceramic restorations for teeth and implants. The technologies available today can give the same aesthetic restorations with half the time, and half the visits. The software capabilities are available for all types of restorations. All the different types of scanners will be discussed and how they are used in a prosthetic private practice. Various CAD - ceramic materials allow the clinician to get high translucency, high flexural strength and excellent marginal integrity.

Communication Protocols with Photography Premium Member Content

Communication Protocols with Photography
Digital photography is a very important subject in dentistry. It is hard to know where to start, especially when applying to dentistry. This lecture serves as an ad aid for the clinician and technician during the process of approaching the patient from treatment planning presentation to the process of integration digital photography into the color-matching procedure.

Legal Considerations  in the use of Cone  Beam Computer Tomography Imaging

Legal Considerations in the use of Cone Beam Computer Tomography Imaging
Cone beam computed tomography imaging represents a paradigm shift for enhancing diagnosis and treatment planning. Questions regarding cone beam computed tomography’s associated legal responsibility are addressed, including cone beam computed tomography necessity, recognition of pathosis in the scan’s entire volume, adequate training, informed consent and/or refusal and current court status of cone beam computed tomography. Judicious selection and prudent use of cone beam computed tomography technology to protect and promote patient safety and efficacious treatment complies with the standard of care.

Improving Diagnosis Through the Use of Digital Radiography

Improving Diagnosis Through the Use of Digital Radiography
As aesthetic dentistry has gained in popularity among consumers, who are more aware of the potential it has to correct deficiencies in their smiles, practitioners are challenged to improve the nature of their treatment. Often, this entails providing treatment with a smaller associated expense, reduced treatment duration or expense, and with increased comfort to the patient throughout the procedure. Facing these imperatives, greater numbers of practitioners have opted to incorporate digital communications…

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra
The key to the success of soft tissue lasers is their ability to cut and coagulate the soft tissue at the same time. Present work is aimed to derive the wavelength-dependent differences in photo-thermal ablation and coagulation efficiencies for oral soft tissue pulsed dental Near-IR Diode, Mid-IR Erbium and IR CO2 lasers. Even though the soft tissue photothermal ablation has been extensively studied, there remains a discrepancy between (a) the widely proliferated notion about efficient Near-IR 800-1,100 nm laser ablation of the oral soft tissue, and (b) studies reporting the inefficient soft tissue Near-IR absorption/ablation. Indeed, the notions about “the key to the usefulness of the Nd:YAG is that this wavelength is highly absorbed in oral soft tissue”, and “all currently available dental laser instruments and their emission wavelengths have indications for use for incising, excising... oral soft tissue surgery”, contradict an observation illustrated here...
