The first case profiled had gingival recession exposing root surfaces, yet there was no discussion of etiology or discussion of consideration for periodontal plastic surgery. Some margins were left in dentin. Cementation technique left out some important steps to avoid leakage and sensitivity.

Excellent results Dr Vafiadis...Is there an issue with bonding to dentin with the case where you brought back the anterior arch from by 2mms? In making the provisionals did you have to create a common path of draw of all the preps to allow the Protemp shell to be drawn from the preps in one piece without it shrink wrapping and locking on the preps? Do you spot etch the preps only without applying bond before adding the flowable composite as the bonding agent?
Which flowable do you use?
Thank you! Sharon Goodwin

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.

Overall, this lecture will create an understanding and relationship between the cervical spine and mandibular movements and the trilogy between Joints, Muscles and Occlusion. Most of the patients that we treat for dysfunction, were compromised during the early stages of growth and development. Overtime these created accommodations and compensations in the system induced by the physiology of the airway. After a proper structural, functional analysis, and diagnostic, phase II offers the alternative of orthopedic facial development where we can restructure the architecture of the face and the airway.
