Improving the Dentist/Technician Communication for optimum Smile Design and Ceramic Restorations

Description:
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.

"The Rise of the Machines" Creating the Digital Dental Team: Man, Materials, and Machines
The new millennium has brought many advances in dental ceramics. None more important than processing techniques using Cad-Cam technology. These technologies have allowed the use of high strength glass ceramics and solid sintered Zirconia based ceramics that could not be used with conventional techniques. Thus, today it is possible to generate any type of indirect dental restoration with a Cad-Cam device. To date, no system has the ability to layer machined substrates to maximize anterior esthetics, which provides an excellent opportunity to use or combine the best of the human world with the best of the machine world to develop world-class anterior esthetics. This presentation will cover, “THE CURRENT POSSIBILITES FOR THE BOUTIQUE DIGITAL DENTAL LAB and IN-OFFICE DIGITAL DENTAL TEAM”, and the clinical and laboratory steps in the process for different types of restorations, along with esthetic enhancements for the use of these ceramics.

Effective Restorative Dentistry Using CO2 Hard Tissue Laser Premium Member Content

Effective Restorative Dentistry Using CO2 Hard Tissue Laser
The CO2 9.3um hard tissue laser has made restorative dentistry more acceptable to patients mainly due to the lack of local anesthesia required for most all restorations. Procedures will be shown on both virgin teeth as well as replacement of previous restorations. What has been most impressive is how the cutting speed can be varied in both enamel and dentin. Also the efficiency as well as the simplicity of operation will be included. Finally, you will see patient responses after the procedures showing the effectiveness of the laser in anesthetizing the teeth being treated.

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…

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions
Dental erosion is a global health problem that can lead to significant functional and esthetic impairments of the affected patients. Treatment of sever cases with augmented loss of the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) represents a challenge for both the dental team and the patient. CAD/CAM technology was used in the presented case to analyze the inter-occlusal space. The case report documents a practical, digital approach and discusses the advantages related to treatment time, ease of treatment, and predictability.
