RUBBERDAMology: Tips and Tricks With Isolation
It is well known that all dental work must be under full control by operator. We always try to do our best during root canal treatment, or placing composite restorations, or luting bonded ceramic constructions. We pay a lot of attention to details and procedures, learn all new aspects of operative dentistry, follow all steps and protocols but… some time do waist our invaluable time due to challenging with moisture – saliva, bleeding, tongue, chicks, lips that are often on our way to reach the goal. And this competition is always more stressful then other most important components. Fortunately we have got great assistant for this “dirty” job that gives us stress-free conditions of working, saves our time and health and gives best ergonomics. It is rubberdam. During our lecture we will open all secrets how to use this most helpful system in operative dentistry controlling our main task – treatment.

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.

The Proof is in the Laboratory; A Maxillary Full Arch Implant Supported Zirconia Prettau Comparison
The FP-3 “Implant Supported Hybrid" has proven to be an exceptional and highly specialized treatment option for patients with non restorable teeth or existing edentulism. The use of zirconia provides the ultimate outcome bringing with it a new standard of esthetics, function and, when done well, a long lasting prosthesis. This presentation will stress the importance of treatment planning, CAD CAM technology, and the all important need for the laboratory technician’s human touch. Surgical aspects, provisonalization during healing, and management of soft tissue are important components. The protocol for final fabrication of the FP-3 all zirconia prosthesis is detailed along with a description of this exciting new technology.

Aesthetic Excellence Through Outcome-Based Treatment Rationale
The conceptual basis of restorative-driven implant dentistry is well established among clinicians. Its implementation includes the development of a prosthetic blueprint that will serve as a guide throughout therapy. While these concepts may be applied to prosthetic dentistry in general, their benefits are most compelling in the treatment of the aesthetic zone. This article demonstrates a systematic multidimensional approach for the establishment and incorporation of definitive aesthetic objectives throughout…

Prosthetic Gingival Reconstruction in a Fixed Partial Restoration - Part 1: Introduction to Artificial Gingiva as an Alternative Therapy
The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.

In Practice Maintenance of Esthetic Restorations

In Practice Maintenance of Esthetic Restorations
During my career in dentistry, I have seen patients successfully maintain their restorations for more than 40 years. Other patients have needed replacement or repair in less than 5 years. Why is there such a tremendous range? Obviously, the lifespan of a restoration has a strong correlation to its original fabrication quality. But professional dental oral maintenance plus home care by the patient can greatly influence the lifespan of restorations as well. This article addresses the basic elements…
