Dr Bhola, i found your presentation very interesting and inspiring. But i have some doubts about the management of the movements that the patients can do after the surgery. They have to avoid smiling o do bigger movements with their lips for how much time?. Sorry if my english it isn't as correct as it should be. Thank you for the presentation.

Thank you Dr. Monish! Very nice presentation. I'm wondering about the need to regroup the muscle fibers as I have seen in another representation. I understand that having minimal thickness of tissue removal will minimize the relapse but could you please explain how you came to this conclusion?

Maurice Salama - (6/5/2014 7:28 AM)

Monish; Thank you and see you at the DentalXP Global Symposium. What is the realistic "relapse" potential of this procedure? How do explain this to the patient? many thanks Dr. Salama

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.
